History Given of Valley Forge


Author(s):
Abstract:
The turning point in the struggle of American independence came in the winter of 1777-1778. Clothing, food, and munitions supplies were scant and the British fleet and army held Philadelphia, New York, and the Hudson River. North Carolina had nine regiments in Washington's winter camp, and part of these men were assigned to harass the British outposts.
