ABSTRACT
The article discusses the challenges faced by the U.S. Army soldiers during their winter encampment in Morristown, New Jersey from 1779 to 1780. It is explained that Morristown has been selected by U.S. Army General George Washington for its safe distance away from enemy probes. In spite of the several snowstorms that hit the region, enlisted men endured staying at canvas tents before they built log huts. The food and clothing problems suffered by soldiers during their encampment in Morristown are also described.
