Morristown National Historical Park commemorates the suffering of the Continental Army during the terrible winter encampment of 1779-1780. It commemorates also the ability and leadership of George Washington.

The main part of Washington's army camped in Jockey Hollow during that winter. There were no smiling fields and shady trails - just snow and cols, bitter cold. The rural comfort of Henry Wick's farm sheltered many of the cols 10,000 who camped in huts and prayed for spring.
