Overview

The winters of 1776-1777 and 1777-1778 were desperate times for the Continental Army. On both occasions, American soldiers were cold, hungry, and demoralized by battlefield defeats. The cause of independence appeared lost. Yet, thanks to the courage of the men and the leadership of General George Washington, the army survived. Read about two wild winters that helped keep the spirit of liberty alive until the British were finally beaten.
