Program: Morristown: Where America Survived

Morristown: Where America Survived is a thirty-minute High Definition documentary which revisits that winter of 1779-80 when Washingtons 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.
