The year is 1778, the place is Valley Forge in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. George Washington and many other revolutionary soldiers are here. I am one of them. Valley Forge is a Winter Camp that we have built to keep an eye on the British army. When I arrived here in 1777, I was not exactly a perfectly healthy man, and I am far from healthy now. Life here is torture. Everyday I see my friends and fellow soldiers die. I have been here eight whole months with only one more to go. I cannot wait to leave this godforsaken place. But George Washington and an abundance of other soldiers would like me to stay to fight for this soon-to-be country. However, I can not stay here, for it is unbearable. There is not enough food to go around, illness and
It was the year 1777. The Revolutionary War is breaking out and George Washington and his army are making camp at Valley Forge during a dreadful winter. It was the week before Christmas when Valley Forge was established. 18 miles northwest of Philadelphia,at valley Forge, George Washington was at valley Forge to watch the British. The total troops at Valley Forge was in December 1777 was 12,000. Then in February 1778 there was 8,000. So my question is: Had you been a soldier at Valley Forge, would you have quit? I have decided to not re-enlist for three reasons which are 12 men living in one hut, not wanting to get smallpox and dysentery, and I do not want to die.
valley Forge was named for an iron forge on Valley Creek in Whitemarsh, Pennsylvania. It was not the best place to set up winter camp for the Continental Army, as it was unable to defend southern Pennsylvania at the time. This location also left the vulnerable under-supplied army in striking distance of the British, who were well provisioned and secured in Philadelphia. The area was close enough to the British to keep their raiding and foraging parties out of the interior of Pennsylvania,
Would you have quit at Valley Forge? Residing in Valley Forge are 12,000 of approximately 25,000 men of the Continental Army. Led by the phenomenal general George Washington, many brave lives are volunteers to fight for independence. Although the Washington’s army was very hopeful, it was having difficulties parting from Britain. Lacking a settlement for the winter of 1777, half the army retreated to Valley Forge. As they were undergoing horrific times, Britain quartered pleasantly in Philadelphia just 18 miles Northwest. Conditions are horrible for Valley Forge, lacking necessities and military aid. Although the French provided money and troops soon after, it was not nearly enough for the camp. The odds aren’t even at all and a troop’s will

I am a 9 month soldier, and my contract ends on March first.
I find myself one of George Washington’s soldiers fighting for the rebels at Valley Forge. Valley Forge is a hard place to live and especially fight, but something’s make more of an impact than other things here. One is that our hearts are constantly filled with smoke and our eyes are constantly affected by this. Another is a sickness, we have thousands of men sick here and many have already died. And one of the main things is that we are running very low on meat and quality food and we are eating low protein food. But despite those things I still have a hard decision to make soon I will have to decide to reenlist or not and go home to my family. I believe that I will reenlist for three reasons which are I need to provide for my family and

Joliet city is located near the Des Plaines River, which it makes divide the township into two parts. It is the capital city of Will County (Liebe et al., 850). The Hickory creek enters the city from the east uniting with the Plaines which makes the town well watered. The city is mainly covered with limestone and other stone quarries that have made excellent building stones.

Joliet also has timber that was used in furnishing the buildings made by the early settler. Notably, the settlers in the township were mostly from
