Unveiling the Untold: Illuminating African American Stories at Valley Forge

Recent research has identified 112 civilians and 521 soldiers of African descent who were engaged at Valley Forge during the Revolutionary War. This grant will support an initiative by the Valley Forge Park Alliance to uncover and disseminate the often-overlooked narratives of these individuals. The initiative will offer a fresh perspective on American history by shedding light on the complexities of freedom and sacrifice, and will deepen understanding of the nation's diverse heritage through immersive tours and educational programs utilizing historic buildings as platforms for storytelling.
