The winter spent in Valley Forge (1777-78) showed the determination of the Continental Army.


Although seen as a low point in the American Revolution, the winter spent at Valley Forge did help the army. The crossing of the Delaware raised the moral of the army, inspiring many to continue their service. The same battle proved to the world that the American colonists could, in fact, defeat the British. This caused European countries to assist the Americans.
