The bottom of the poster has text in black: " 'You might have tracked the army from / Whitemarsh to Valley Forge by the blood of their feet". Half of the men had no shoes. Those who did were soon reduced / to boiling and eating them. Yet they held together through the winter; and in the / spring of 1778 emerged stronger, more dedicated, more effective than before. / The freezing Pennsylvania woods became the birthplace of today's Army. / Join the people who've joined the Army.".
