Valley Forge

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

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.
