Valley Forge

Background

Valley Forge is where George Washington and the Continental Army camped during the winter of 1777-1778. The troops suffered from harsh cold, starvation, and disease. Washington managed to miraculously hold the army together and together with news that the French would enter the war on the American side, the tempered army was able to leave in the spring of 1778 and recapture Philadelphia.
