Washington ordered all the huts to be alike, lined up neatly in rows with the soldiers in front and the officers behind. The men camped in tents until the huts were ready - Christmas time for the soldiers and January or February for the officers. Then they built the orderly huts, kitchens, and the rest. Altogether they put up over 1,000 huts in Jockey Hollow. The Pennsylvania Line had about 200 of them lined up on the hillside in front of you.
