Valley Forge is a 1975 videotaped adaptation of the 1934 Broadway play by Maxwell Anderson about the American Revolutionary War encampment at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania and a planned escape by the men desperate to leave behind the terrible conditions of the winter. Shot partly on location in Canada. Directed and produced by Fielder Cook. Originally broadcast as part of the Hallmark Hall of Fame series of specials.

To condense the plot, the seventy-five-minute production entirely omits the play's principal female character, Mary Philipse.
