Bring Your Tired, Your Weary
Photograph by Brian Strauss

George Washington marched into Valley Forge with 11,000 of his Revolutionary soldiers one cold December in 1777. Tattered and worn, some trailed bloody footprints in the snow and suffered from legs and feet frozen black. So when ground zero workers started coming into St. Paul’s with boots burned off their feet, the Reverend Lyndon Harrison could only think of one place to send them and the podiatrists—the pew box (right) where Washington worshiped while President. And if they were in need of more assistance, they could visit the chiropractors, who were also stationed in the north aisle.
