German - American Steuben Parades

Only three German-American communities annually celebrate the contributions of Freiherr Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben in support of the thirteen colonies that eventually became our United States of America - New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago.

It was Benjamin Franklin of Philadelphia who recommended von Steuben's services to General Washington during the American Revolutionary War. At Valley Forge, outside of Philadelphia, von Steuben trained the Revolutionary Army. In the process he developed the Manual of Arms. Although modified over the years, von Steuben's Manual of Arms still closely resembles the drill manual currently used by the United States Army. It has been argued that without von Steuben's services, the United States of America would not have gained their independence.
