Publisher Summary
The story of the hardships and difficulties endured by General George Washington and the Continental Army during the winter of 1777-1778 at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.

Remember Valley Forge tells the ultimate survival story. Travel the trail of defeat that leads Washington's ragtag army to seek winter refuge at Valley Forge. Read from a teenage soldier's diary and a doctor's gruesome accounts of disease, hunger, and cold. Learn of plots against Washington and spies who aid the enemy. Discover why farmers sell the British food as the Continental Army starves and a powerless Congress looks on. Learn the true story behind the amazing achievements of the "winter soldiers." A time line, archival images, maps, Web sites, source list, and index make this an excellent research tool for students.
