At least another night's walk... and remember not to say that name out here. You never know who is listening.
One night in 1778, a man and his son are walking through the woods, taking a break from their horse. It seems perfectly normal, but they are, in fact, very important to the course of history.
How far are we from Valley Forge, Father?
A sound in the night startles them. It could just be the snapping of twigs under animal's footfalls, but this man is not taking any risks.
Did you hear that? Son, you need to hide!
It isn't an animal after all. It's British soldiers who arrest the father and take their horse. The son hides behind a tree, terrified and desperate. Do the soldiers know that his father is a spy? Do they know about the encrypted letter he was going to give to General Washington?
How will the letter get to General Washington now?
The son desperately wants to make his father proud and contribute to the cause for the Revolution. General Washington needs the encrypted letter. So he decides to deliver the letter himself, making the rest of the perilous journey on foot through Pennsylvania.
The son successfully makes it to the camp, and General Washington commends him for his bravery. The boy is proud of himself, but he secretly mourns his father. He fears for his life in the hands of the British.
Thank you for your service, young man.
To his great surprise and joy, his father was waiting for him at home. The British had released him when they'd found him un-suspicious and he'd "sworn his loyalty to the King". He was very proud of his son for completing their mission for this blossoming country, and they embraced on the front lawn.
