It was an chilly day at Valley Forge and General Washington was trying to find warm residence for his men for the night. He approached a house and asked if they could put up a trooper. "We have only room for one."
"I will leave you Peters. He is the smallest of our group."
The only other house close by was a brothel.
Washington knocked on the door and a lady answered it.
"Mam, we are fighting for our independence. We need a place of warmth for my troops to sleep."
"Sir, this is a brothel. We have plenty of beds but.."
"Great. Can you house 40 men, we are without Peters."
"Oh. I see. Yes we can put them up for the night."
A part of the Revolutionary War you seldom heard at school, restored.
