Morristown National Historical Park

In 1779 soldiers of the New Jersey Brigade built this hearth. Archeologists stabilized it and removed the other artifacts found here for protection.

The hearth provided the hut's only comfort: a warm fire. Food ran out. Many men had no shoes and some had no clothes. Even bedding straw was in short supply - but there was a fire.

Soldiers' huts were all alike - one room, one hearth, one door, six bunks, and 12 men - all the huts lined up in neat rows. Most of the soldiers' huts were ready by Christmas.
