Morristown: Where America Survived


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. Award-winning actor Edward Herrmann narrates the program, based on John T. Cunningham’s book The Uncertain Revolution and shot at Morristown National Historical Park in New Jersey.
