1777 · Washington's Troops Spent the Winter at Valley Forge

Age 20

The winter that Washington’s troops spent at Valley Forge was horrible. Most the troops that had come in with General Washington were injured and dying already. There was little food for the soldiers. They were dying from starvation, disease, and the cold. Horses were dying and the men had to take their place in moving the supply wagons. Washington stayed with his men while all others were leaving and abandoning the struggling troops. This helped Washington gain the support, admiration, and loyalty of his troops.
