Host Dave Stotts begins this journey at the home of Thaddeus Kosciuszko, a Polish engineer who was a compatriot of Benjamin Franklin and became head engineer of the Continental Army. At Germantown, Dave visits the house that General Howe successfully defended and tells the little-known story of George Washington returning General Howe's dog after the conflict. At Valley Forge, Dave recalls the harsh winters of 1777 and 1778, when General Von Steuben transformed the beleaguered Revolutionary army into an 18th century fighting force.
