Valley Forge

After defeat at Germantown, 10,000 Continental soldiers entered winter quarters at Valley Forge, Pa., on 19 December 1777. Perhaps 25 percent died of disease or malnutrition that winter. On 18 June 1778, the Continentals—augmented with new recruits—left the encampment highly skilled in battle drill due to Baron von Steuben's training; the army emerged roughly equal in fighting ability to the British Army, which it fought to a draw at their next major encounter at Monmouth Courthouse, N.J.
