Description
 
Valley Forge is not the site of a great battle, but it has long been recognized as the site of a great victory -- a victory of the human spirit. It was a triumph of endurance & dedication over starvation, nakedness, cold, disease, & uncertainty. In addition, it marks the transition of a determined but disparate, untrained, & independent-minded band of men into an effective, disciplined fighting force. For generations of Americans, Valley Forge has provided a symbol of patriotic devotion, epitomizing the ideals which brought our nation into being & which have determined its character throughout the succeeding years. This document seeks to convey some idea of what the experience was like for the men who endured &, in the end, surmounted it. Maps & illustrations.
