The Newport Historical Society discovered a faded, hand drawn map of Valley Forge among the papers of John Austin Stevens, who founded the Sons of the Revolution in 1876 to preserve the history of the Revolutionary War. John Austin Stevens’ grandfather served in the Revolutionary War. Did General Washington hold this map in his hands during the critical winter at Valley Forge?
