Valley Forge, Pennsylvania is remembered as a patriotic sacrifice for the revolution. In fact, the iconography, as compelling as it, blurs the facts. The encampment was not the coldest that the Army ever endured, but it does allow us to examine three issues of equal importance - the break down of supply, attacks on George Washington's character, and the institutionalization of a training regime under the watchful eye of Baron von Steuben.
