Historic Waynesborough Speaker Series: Ricardo Herrera

May 30, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

What was life like for the Continental soldiers camped at Valley Forge during the dark, cold days of the American Revolution? How did they cope with weather, disease and lack of provisions? And what role did local hero General Anthony Wayne play during this challenging time?

Award-winning historian Ricardo Herrera will talk about this and more at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 30, at Historic Waynesborough in Paoli.

Dr. Herrera, a visiting professor at the Army War College in Carlisle, Pa., is the author of Feeding Washington’s Army: Surviving the Valley Forge Winter of 1778. His book brings to light some of the lesser-known stories about the army’s activities at the encampment and the efforts of General George Washington, his officers, and his soldiers to cope with dismal conditions.

Dr. Herrera will sell and sign copies of his book. Admission is $15.
