A 2008 NCTE Orbis Pictus Honorable Mention. "That winter, the British had their best chance to crush the American rebellion. Washington himself warned that his army was about to 'starve, dissolve, or disperse.' And yet the army did not fall apart. In June, the rebels marched out of Valley Forge tested, toughened, and ready to fight." In addition to providing fascinating details about how the soldiers of the Continental Army lived in Valley Forge, this book also paints brilliant portraits of the men who led them: Alexander Hamilton, the Marquis de Lafayette, Friedrich von Steuben, and, of course, George Washington. Source notes. Selected bibliography. Index. Black-and-white, sepia-toned, and full-color illustrations.
