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 Wahington's Headquarter's Museum and the Visitor Center in Jockey Hollow.
