"ALLEY FORGE, scene of tlie
Continental Army's martyrdom
and heroism in the depressing

delphia, chiefly a Washington Memo-
Via' Library and a Washington Memo-

Valley Forge continues to be ths
center of Interest of thousands anc
thousands of visitors from every sec
tion of the country, as well as froir
Kailror.ds and automobile bus com
panted regularly run excursions to (lit
famous old shrine of patriotism and
on Sundays and holidays even th<
broad acres of Valley Forge are taxed
for space by the huge throngs. In
uddition many visitors travel by prl
vate motor cars over the excellent
roads, kept In splendid condition bv
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
All roads to Valley Forge run
through a landscape of remarkable
beauty, artists agree, and these roads
are trented, as necessity arises, with
chemicals, especially calcium chloride,
to lay the dust.
Only 32 miles from Philadelphia, the i
shrine has long been one of the favor-
ite objectives for daily excursions for j
1'hiladeIphlanr, as well as for visitors
to that city who have combined the
Valley Forge trip with a tour of other
places of historic interest, such as
Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross
Mouse and other relics of the Revolu-
That Interest is expected to be stim-
ulatcd by the forthcoming celebration.
