    Protecting the Commander-in-Chief: Washington's Life Guards

    During the winter of 1779 - 1780 General George Washington had at his disposal an elite corps of  250 men for his personal security and for protection of his personal papers. Service in the Life Guards was an honor and unlike most regiments made up of soldiers from a single state,  the Life Guard was selected from men representing all 13 states. Join a park ranger on a short walk to see where these men lived and learn about the role this unit played at Morristown and in the rest of the war.
