Joining DVF requires proof that your ancestor was at Valley Forge as part of the Continental Army between December 19, 1777 and June 19, 1778.  This is the list of the patriots that our members have used to join our society.  At this time, this list may NOT be used as proof for your application.  We are in the process of organizing our records and may be able to use the list as proof sometime in the future.  Please note that this is NOT a comprehensive list of those who served. 

Another list exists, the Muster Roll, maintained by the Valley Forge Park Alliance.  Our organization accepts any patriot name on that list as part of your application.  You would still need to prove that person is your ancestor, but you would not need to provide proof of service.

One of the most iconic commemorative works on the American Revolution, William Trego's March to Valley Forge was painted in Philadelphia and exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1883.  It was conserved in 2011, thanks to funding from the Society of the Descendants of Washington’s Army at Valley Forge and now hangs in the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia, PA.
