During the Philadelphia campaign of the American Revolutionary War, George Washington and the Continental Army set up their camps here after their defeat at the Battle of Germantown in 1777. This was also immediately prior to their march to Valley Forge. During their encampment at Fort Washington the British and American forces met on the battle field, which is now know as the Battle of White Marsh. Today, Fort Washington State Park contains the area in which the primary American defenses were situated.
