Rebirth of an Army – The Valley Forge Encampment – NEW – 2 hours – When we think of Valley Forge, we picture ragged, starving soldiers struggling against a brutal winter. Of course, conditions at Valley Forge were harsh, but the experience could be interpreted as “normal suffering conditions” – lack of necessities was an ever-present companion of the Continental soldier.  To provide a better understanding of the Valley Forge encampment and its impact on the Philadelphia area and the American Revolution, this class will provide firsthand accounts of the military movements and engagements prior to the encampment, the life of soldiers at Valley Forge – and period maps and reproduction uniforms and equipment.
