      March Out of the Continental Army Commemoration
    • Saturday, June 20, 2015
    • On June 19, 1778, George Washington's Continental Army marched out of the Valley Forge encampment, having endured six months of challenging hardships. Yet positive changes had also taken place, and the army that left the encampment was larger and more unified than before, and was in pursuit of the British Army which had evacuated captured Philadelphia. Every year, Valley Forge National Historical Park commemorates the march-out of the army, and this year's event offers visitors a special opportunity to participate. Starting at Artillery Park, participants will form up into a marching formation and walk about a half mile down a historic road, encountering historical interpreters along the way. The program concludes near Varnum's picnic area with a program on soldier life.
