Harding in Morris County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
A Revolutionary Winter
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.
