  • In December, 1777, General George Washington moved the Continental Army to Valley Forge for the winter.
  • What about a bathroom break?
  • I got this!
  • So tired...
  • While staying at Valley Forge the men suffered from the cold, hunger, and fatigue. They also, had a short supply of clothes.
  • I don't know what i've been told!
  • Come on Men! We got this!
  • But Joe's socks are really old!
  • From the lack of supplies and more, 2,000 soldiers died. Washington decided to send men, led by Nathanael Greene, on missions to procure what provisions could be found in the surrounding countryside.
