Valley Forge

Where do you go when it is so hot? A place that at least can bring a sense of cold. The American army wintered in Valley Forge and suffered in the cold. They did manage to survive and then to beat the British at Monmouth later that year to help turn the tide.

Imagining the cold helped deal with the heat of the day.
