Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Valley Forge National Historical Park

Valley Forge National Historical Park

During the bitter winter of 1777, General George Washington’s troops sought shelter in log cabins and huts as they worked and trained to become the Continental Army. Located on the rolling hills of Valley Forge National Historical Park, these reconstructed cabins help to depict the hardships and sacrifices made by America’s earliest fighting troops.
