General George Washington and the Continental Army were encamped at Fort Washington and Whitemarsh after the Battle of Germantown on October 4,1777 and up until they marched to Rebel Hill and Gulph Mills on December 12, 1777.  I’ll talk about all of this, including the Battle of Whitemarsh that was fought in the area  on December 5 – 8, 1777.
