Morristown: Where America Survived DVD

Item#: 338691




Morristown: Where America Survived revisits the record cold winter of 1779-1780 when 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 documentary follows the soldiers' experiences, from Washington the General to Joseph Plumb Martin, a young private who left historians one of the only detailed recollections of the time.  The film is an eye-opening look at how the camp saved the army and the American Revolution from the brink of disaster.
