The day we visited was Barbara Bush's funeral. The flag was flying at half-mast. Very touching. A very inspiring place to visit!

Easy to access via car. It is based on the Arch of Titus as is the arch in Washington Square Park in NYC. Use the cell phone tour to get the background history while you drive.

This is one of those worthwhile stops on self guided tour of Valley Forge. There is a large parking nearby and paved walking pathways. The arch is very impressive, prominent and photogenic . Interesting up close and from the distance.

This is part of the Encampment Tour of the Valley Forge National Historical Park. Its beautiful, and is, I believe celebrating its centennial this year. Don't miss it if you visit the park.

Not a lot to say about this except it is quite impressive and very moving. Very easy access from a near by parking area.
