Jockey Hollow by Adrian

Here is the follow up blog about Jockey Hollow. It is part of the Morristown National Historical Park in Morristown, Morris County, New Jersey, United States. It was twice used as a winter encampment by the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War (Wikipedia).

Wick House served as the quarters of Major Joseph Bloomfield of the Third New Jersey Regiment during the winter of 1776-1777. Later, it also served as the winter headquarters of General Arthur St. Clair in 1779 through 1780.

Recreation of the hut at the visitor's center. There is nothing in the soldier hut replica except bunk beds made of pieces of wood.
Call me history buff but seeing and researching historical places like this one is fun and very educational. Hope you enjoy reading and seeing as much as I do.
