Washington’s Headquarters at Valley Forge. (The Isaac Potts house). Isaac Potts went to collect the rent early one morning during Washington’s encampment there (1777-1778) from his cousin who was renting the house. He observed Washington kneeling and praying along the banks of the Schuylkill river as he approached. When he returned home, he told daughter about what he had seen and she recorded it in her diary.

Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary Soldier at West Washington Square in Philly. People go there every day, walk their dogs, do yoga, sit on a park bench and read, etc. They never think about the fact that Washington Square is a graveyard with 5000-5500 unmarked graves. It’s a block from Independence Hall (The Pennsylvania Statehouse).
