In the winter of 1776, the Americans looked defeated. But General George Washington did not give up. His troops made a daring move, crossing the Delaware River and winning two battles. The next winter, Washington's soldiers were cold and starving at Valley Forge. How could poorly-equipped and untrained men crush the mighty British? Follow author John Micklos, Jr., as he explores two wild winters with Washington.
