Valley Forge National Historical Park hosted a fine event on December 19, 2010. Reenactors and Living Historians showed tourists how the Continental Army handled the cold weather and lived in such conditions.
First I encountered several candles along side the walkway leading up to the park ...
Then I entered the Visitor's Center where I listened to the Carolers and looked at some artifact displays ...
The tour guide:
We were stopped by Continental Troops who asked for the password:
A replica Muhlenberg Brigade Hut (the originals vanished long ago):
I always enjoy photographing and being near the fire:
Here is a brief video. I started it by looking up at the Moon and then walked into one of the replica Muhlenberg Brigade Huts while a three-woman choir was signing "What Child Is This" by candle light. Very dark, but I did my best.

See you all next year ...
I am a(n) researcher and archivist.
