Morristown: Where America Survived

Special | 26m 45s

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.
