SO HUNGRY!!!! I'm willing to eat the bark on that tree....
Even my tears are freezing, Frank....My TEARS.....I'm pretty sure that is NOT supposed happen!
I miss my wife....
You guys are going to stay strong or GET OUT THERE AND PRACTICE YOUR AIM!!!
The rest of us will keep fighting, pushing till we get out of here.
But, sir, we've already lost Frank along with 2/3 of the camp. We can't keep this up for much longer.
The winter of 1777 was a rough one for George Washington and the rest of the Continental Army. George Washington decided to set up camp at Valley Forge.
After a while, supplies started running out, and the soldiers had to suffer through harsh conditions. Food began to run out, clothing was scarce and George Washington calculated that one third of the men did not have shoes. Disease was also spreading quickly and two thirds of the army died.
This is going to be a very good alliance, I can feel it.
March two, three, four. Let's run these drills a few more times. AND...March two, three, four.
Even when it was rough, George Washington encouraged his men to stay strong. When it didn't work, he would make training into a punishment.
All of the punishment or training the men did, made the army grow stronger as a whole.
Prussian General Friedrich Von Steuben helped out by training the army, and the French became an ally. The French sent over supplies and troops. George Washington was now able to focus more on ending the war.
In the spring of 1778, George Washington lead his troops out of Valley Forge to once again face the British.
