**HOLD FOR STORY BY DAVID PORTER** William Styple holds an old farm implement that he unearthed while looking for artifacts Thursday, May 5, 2016, in Chatham, N.J. A group is digging for artifacts that may be the best evidence yet, that this unspoiled swath of land about 15 miles west of Newark Liberty International Airport hosted Gen. George Washington's army in the winter of 1777, a year before the ragtag group hunkered down at its more well-known refuge at Valley Forge, Pa. It was Styple's research over the last year, with a key assist from his teenage son, that fixed the location of the encampment in a area of largely pristine land straddling Chatham and a few neighboring towns.
