American Flag This is the old american flag during the times of the american revolution the stripes stand for the colonies and the stars stand for the states (witch were both 13 at the time).

Valley Forge tested Washington and his army. They survived the winter to fight in the spring, smaller, but better.

The Continental Army not from poor weather at Valley Forge but from disease and lack of healthy food and weapons.
