Awesome pictures Donna - its been a quarter century since I've been back to Ft Lee to see something like this, simply amazing. What General Washington and his soldiers endured with lack of supplies and support but in the end grabbed the upper hand and America was FREE.

Thank you. Perhaps, next year you will make a visit since this is an annual event. Usually, the "Retreat To Victory" takes place around the middle of Nov. and always on the weekend. Notices, are posted on the: www.thefortleehistoricalsociety.org website's page. This event is a full weekend of re-living the history of what life was like during the American Revolution. The event takes place along the streets of Fort Lee, Monument Park and Fort Lee Historic Park. Lastly, if in town, stop by the Fort Lee Museum. Think you would really like this time of year in Fort Lee.....
