Morristown: Where America Survived

  • Aired: 11/28/2013
  • 26:45
  • Expires: 12/16/2013
  • Rating: NR
This documentary revisits the winter of 1779-80, when General Washington's troops arrived at the densely wooded area just south of Morristown, known as Jockey Hollow, to build a log hut city for their winter camp. The film is an eye-opening look at how the camp saved the army - and the American Revolution - from the brink of disaster. Based on John T. Cunningham's book The Uncertain Revolution.
