American Revolutionary War: Morristown National Historic Park

describes the mansion and environs where General Washington and his aides were headquartered for 200 days. It was here in the Ford Mansion that he met with officers, scouts, spies, statesmen, and foreign diplomats. His troops -- the Continental Army of over 10,000 soldiers -- were encamped on the windswept hills and farmland nearby, where they built a "log-house city" of more than 1,000 structures. Washington had selected this site in Morristown, NJ, for strategic reasons. (National Park Service)
