Eight Men Out

Were you aware that the title "Baker General" existed and was bestowed upon a Gingerbread Baker from Philadelphia during the Revolutionary War? Were you aware that the "Baker General" baked up to 6,000 pounds of bread in a single day? The "Baker General" became a trusted friend of George Washington and ended up donating a significant sum of money which started "The Christopher Ludwick Foundation" in Philadelphia. And, the "Baker General" had a way with people, including enemies, that would win them over to his "side". This is a great story about honesty, hard work, perseverance, and how to make a long-term difference in the world! We hope you enjoy "Eight Men Out".
