George Washington really slept here

The Peter Wentz Farm is a gem of a historical landmark. It is where George Washington planned the battle of Germantown during the Revolutionary War. We visited the farm during their candle light tour on a cold clear night in December. This is shot taken without a tripod with the camera sitting on a fence post. The light is mostly from candles except for the one electric light by the door. You can see the typical Pennsylvania German (Dutch) stone construction with prominent white mortar between the stones. All of the tour guides were dressed in typical Revolutionary War era clothing.

  1. I love the contrast between the soft candle light and the bare tree standing outside.
