ESTES PARK, Colo. - July 3, 2020 - PRLog -- An American legacy is preserved within the walls of the modest, three-story stone house that George Washington used as his headquarters during part of the American Revolutionary War.

James  R. Bachman—professional historian and specialist in 18th century Georgian architecture—has published a beautifully detailed biography of the building itself. This is the story of the drafting, evolution, and preservation of one of our nation's oldest and most historically significant structures still standing today.

Washington's Headquarters at Valley Forge is a thorough, expertly researched architectural narrative that extends all the way back to the home's construction in the late 1760's by Isaac Potts. Readers are taken on a journey through George Washington's use of the home from 1777 to 1778 all the way to present-day.

Every feature of the home from its exterior and interior features to its joinery and paneling is explored and explained in riveting historical context. The author includes plenty of full-color, high-resolution pictures that bring the home to life for the reader. The book includes important facts related to the ownership status of the house and the restoration work that has been necessary to preserve this incredible building for generations to come.

For a very limited time, this architectural foray into the roots of American history is being made available for FREE to Kindle readers from Friday, July 3rd until Monday, July 6th. Learn more at
