I know the woman who is the curator of the collection at Valley Forge.  She
promised a tour of their weapons behind the scenes to my 10-year old
Revolutionary War fanatic grandson, but we have had to delay because the
visitors center/archive/storage areas are closed for renovations.  I will ask
next time I see her.

My grandson had most of The Ride of Paul Revere memorized by age 4.  When I told
him about Fort Necessity at age 6, he stopped me and finished the story.
