Good episode? Give it some love!
Washington's Continentals suffer a lack of food, clothing and shelter as it struggles to get through the winter at Valley Forge.  At the same time, it must contest a British move into Darby in search of forage.  Captain "light horse Harry" Lee distinguishes himself during this time.  Americans also capture a British ship on the Delaware river.  Washington fights with Congress to get what he needs to maintain and train his army.
