1. A Revolutionary Winter Marker
This same marker can be found at several different locations within Morristown National Historic Park.
Inscription.  Morristown National Historical Park commemorates the suffering of the Continental Army during the terrible winter encampment of 1779-1780. It commemorates also the ability and leadership of George Washington.

The main part of Washington’s army camped in Jockey Hollow during that winter. There were no smiling fields and shady trails – just snow and cols, bitter cold. The rural comfort of Henry Wick’s farm sheltered many of the cols 10,000 who camped in huts and prayed for spring.
 
Erected by Morristown National Historical Park.
