At the birth of the nation after a battle at Brandywine where the British relentlessly pushed forward towards Philadelphia the defeated American Colonial Army retreated to Valley Forge to protect the crossings and regroup. It is a famous point in American History. Did the British realize how weak the Americans were and how easily they could have crushed them by bringing them to another fight?
The lure of Philadelphia was too great, and while the Americans sheltered and reformed from a rag tag militia into an army. The British entered Philadelphia.
Eventually that newly formed army took on the might of an Empire till they withdrew.
During that time of shelter at Valley Forge they wintered during one of the coldest spells, the recent snow falls allowed me to get some footage that shows how it might have looked in Revolutionary times. Enjoy.
