Soldiers In Valley Forge

Decent Essays

In the Winter of 1777 and 1778, the soldiers of Valley Forge had gone through years of blood, sweat, and tears. Knowing what the tough soldiers had gone through, I would have not re-enlisted, and have left. The army may have had the support of George Washington and the spirit of Alacrity, but there are many horrible things that have occurred during that time in Valley Forge. The fighters’ have had plenty enough experience that they would need a break, and return home back to their families where there are no dangerous or extensive things going around getting people ill. I would have re-enlisted because of the poor clothing, weather conditions, and the sicknesses/diseases that were spreading throughout the camp.
