Valley Forge

Valley Forge National Historical Park was created to preserve our nation’s history and tell the story of the Continental Army during the winter of 1777-78.

As the winter weather turned more severe, Washington started moving his troops to Chester County. He hoped Valley Forge would offer the army a better place to build log cabins and supply the troops. On December 11, 1777, Washington pulled out of the Whitemarsh area. By December 18th, they had arrived in Valley Forge.
