Morristown National Historical Park

Even in times of severest want, there are trash pits. What else can you do with the occasional bone? Or the inevitable broken oddments? Wreckage of a chicken or a beef, a pipe or a musket?

Archeologists removed everything - a meager collection. The army's supplies gave out. At times the men ate bark or shoes, if they had shoes (and many didn't). Yet, there was still a trash pit.
