Valley Forge is the riveting true story of a nascent United States toppling an empire. Using new and rarely seen contemporaneous documents — and drawing on a cast of iconic characters and remarkable moments that capture the innovation and energy that led to the birth of our nation — Bob Drury and Tom Clavin provide the definitive account of this seminal and previously undervalued moment in the battle for American independence.
Tom Clavin is the author or coauthor of sixteen books. He is currently the investigative features correspondent for Manhattan Magazine. He lives in Sag Harbor, New York
