One thing, though, remains the same. The American army still loses the Battle of Germantown each and every year.
Nerd alert: I work at a historical society that reenacts the Revolutionary War battle that happened in Germantown on October 4th, 1777. Even though George Washington's army out numbered the Bristish 10 to 1, they still couldn't muster up a win. This is fine though, because we obviously won the war and those British soldiers were very crafty and barricaded themselves inside a stone walled house. Which still stands today, which I get to give tours at to 4th graders.
Here are some photos from this Saturday's battle festivities:

Even though Saturday was a pretty long day for me, I had a blast with fellow co-workers at the Battle and definitely think that more people should check this out next year!
I promise that I will tone down my history nerdy-ness from now on haha
