Washington's Headquarters at Valley Forge / by Dave Hileman

This nice stone home was once used as a business and "show" house for the Potts family who operated the nearby iron forge. This was occupied by General and Mrs. Washington, Washington's staff and was the strategic heart of the army that winter. It was at Valley Forge where the men learned to be an army. More bitter winters lie ahead at Morristown but this is the place that is etched into history where the army survived and learned discipline and military skills under Steuben and a reformed supply system that was just as critical to success.
