MARCH IN OF THE CONTINENTAL ARMY
VALLEY FORGE NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK
On December 19, 1777, General George Washington led the Continental Army into Valley Forge for what would become a six-month encampment. This "march in" marked what ultimately became the turning point of the Revolutionary War.
Valley Forge National Historical Park commemorates this date each year with candle-lit tours, musical performances, and an appearance by the Commander-in-Chief himself. Learn more about this year's celebration here:
