Valley Forge, near Philadephia.

Valley Forge was one of eight winter encampments for the Continental Army. In September of 1777, Congress fled Philadelphia after the British captured the city. George Washington’s troops of some twelve-thousand men spent six months at this location, amid a supply crisis, disease, and malnutrition. Soldiers were enlisted and discharged at this camp.
