In December of 1777, the 12,000 man army of General George Washington marched into Valley Forge to build a winter encampment.  In addition to the soldiers, more than 400 women were in the column.  They were not only the wives of senior officers but the wives of soldiers who had followed the army since it was assembled.  Join Professor Robert Allison (Suffolk University Department of History, Language & Global Culture) in conversation with Nancy K. Loane, author of "Following the Drum; The Women of Valley Forge."
