Valley Forge

American soldiers enduring extremely poor conditions.

Limited Supplies

Soldiers are suffering from starvation and malnutrition. Little food is available between every group of our brave soldiers and they are going several hours and days without a meal. With supplies so low, soldiers resort to making tasteless and disgusting firecake. Firecake, a mixture of flour and water, is the only source of nourishment for many.

Cold Temperature

The cold temperatures and snow are also assisting in problems and death of many. Colds, frostbite, an other illnesses are common because of this. Combined with limited or no shelter or heat sources, these appear even more often.

No Shelter

Our soldiers struggle without shelter. They are forced to construct their own which is time consuming or borrow from people around the area which may not be spacious enough. And considering how they will be on the move, repeatedly gathering materials and building shelters would be very difficult.

Problems & Disadvantages Concluded

In Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, soldiers are suffering from several poor and extreme conditions. There is limited food and other supplies leading to malnutrition and starvation. Also, the temperature have been very cold and it has snowed much. To further worsen the conditions, the soldiers had few or no shelters.
