Morristown: Where America Survived

Morristown: Where America Survived

Morristown: Where America Survived is a thirty-minute High Definition documentary which revisits that winter of 1779-80 when 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.

Based on John T. Cunningham's book The Uncertain Revolution and shot on location at Morristown National Historical Park, Morristown: Where America Survived is narrated by award-winning actor Edward Herrmann, who has voiced many history documentaries over his extensive career.

The film is shown at the Washington's Headquarter's Museum and the Jockey Hollow Visitor Center.

The film is avialable to purchase through Eastern National at the Jockey Hollow Visitor Center Bookstore and the Washington's Headquarters Museum Bookstore.
