The encampment at Valley Forge was the turning point of the Revolutionary War, yet no battle was ever fought there. Following defeats against the British in 1777, General George Washington led the Continental Army to encamp at this 3,500-acre site northeast of Philadelphia to retrain, reorganize and recuperate.
The troops endured the harsh winter without proper clothing and suffered from gnawing hunger. The log cabins they built were paramount for their survival and to fend off the biting cold as they rebounded from a disastrous supply crisis.
The log cabin now symbolizes America’s pioneering spirit over the centuries, from coast to coast, north to south. It reflects the courage and commitment of the many patriots – parents, children, merchants, soldiers and others – who sacrificed for and built America.
Valley Forge Capital Advisors honors this spirit and America’s rich history. VFCA brings necessary capital and advisory services to companies in growth, acquisition, distressed, or turnaround situations. In the same spirit of recuperation and resiliency needed in General Washington’s revolutionary fight, the principals at VFCA humbly understand that corporations often need financial or other resources to continue their missions.
