One thought on “Kate Gruber”
Dear Ms. Gruber,
I have visited the new Yorktown center and was pleased to see how many individuals you included in fomenting the war. However, I wonder about the absence of the Polish patriot Thaddeus Kosciuszko, As you know he was not in Williamsburg but what he did with General Greene helped push Cornwallis to Yorktown.
At any rate, do you have any interest in a Kosciuszko character? I have been working on him as he appeared in the late 18th century when he returned to Philadelphia. I have an American officers uniform but I think the Polish uniform would make a good impact. He does need to be remembered.
