In late November of 1779, General George Washington decided that the Continental Army would return to a familiar location for winter camp. He chose Morristown, NJ where they had spent the winter of 1776 to 1777 after their historic victories in Trenton and Princeton. Morristown made strategic sense for a number of reasons. This first stay had been uneventful. The winter of 1779, however, was anything but.
