Satisfactory Essays

After the Battle of Lexington, Bunker Hill, and Saratoga, George Washington and his soldiers decided to build a winter camp in December of 1777. Being called the Continental Army, they settled down in Valley Forge, about 18 to 20 miles northwest of Philadelphia. While the British sat in their luxurious homes, the soldiers tolerated the 16’ by 14’ huts with problems such as the cold and smoke. However, George Washington has a serious complication on hand.
