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 soldiers' huts and tour Washington'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 Park's 10-mile tour loop or hike or bike its miles of trails. Trolley tours, living history programs, ranger-led walks, and storytelling benches are featured seasonally.
