How many Delaware Valley schoolchildren each year are forced to trudge across iced-over mud and listen to history lectures at Valley Forge? Thousands, maybe millions. How many of them remember the actual history and its import rather than how cold it was or the fact that Jacob accidentally aspirated a peanut and had to go to the hospital?
