It is Pride Month here in much of the USA.Â The following is an article I wrote to celebrate that fact.
I was on Facebook when I came across an article on Baron Von Steuben who was a famous American general back in the American Revolution and a known homosexual. He was originally a Prussian soldier who was recruited by Benjamin Franklin to help assist American Colonial troops in their fight for independence; He became drill master for the Continental Army and helps make them into a fighting force that could beat the British. The article also claimed he was gay and that it was known by Franklin, Washington and others and they chose to ignore it because of his services to the American cause. This got my curiosity spiked so I decided to check it out further. The following is the results.
