More than 3,000 of General George Washington's troops died from cold, hunger, and smallpox while encamped at Valley Forge. This is the story of that harsh winter, the victories that followed, and the founding of the Valley Forge National Historical Park.
West Point has a rich history, dating from 1802 as the United States Military Academy. Famous generals, such as Robert E. Lee, Douglas MacArthur, and Norman Schwarzkopf spent their university years there. The daily life of the cadets is described along with anecdotes about the old generals.
