Considered by many to be the birthplace of the United States Army, Valley Forge and its 1777-1778 winter encampment have come to symbolize the sacrifices and fidelity of the Continental soldier during the American Revolution.
At the 3,600-acre Valley Forge National Historical Park see reconstructed soldiersâ€™ huts and tour Washingtonâ€™s original stone headquarters. At the Park's Visitor Center, view artifacts, see the Park's overview film and browse through the Encampment Store. Drive the Parkâ€™s 10-mile tour loop or hike or bike its miles of trails.
