Harding in Morris County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The First Maryland Brigade
Morristown National Historical Park
The Jersey troops were relieved by the Continental Line, which moved into this area in May. Although the weather had improved, the rations had not. Two hungry Connecticut regiments mutinied here on May 25, 1780. Washington declared that the mutiny gave him “infinitely more concern than any thing that ever happened.”
