Morristown National Historical Park

Henry Wick lived here. His main cash crop - several hundred trees - fixed him more comfortably than most New Jersey farmers of his day.

Suddenly in December, 1779, 10,000 hungry soldiers became his guests. Many of them camped on his land, much of which was wooded then as it is now - at least it was wooded before the soldiers came. His home became the headquarters of General Arthur St. Clair, commander of the Pennsylvania Line.
