Morristown National Historical Park

Soldiers of the Pennsylvania Line built these hearths in the winter of 1779-1780.

The rest of the encampment vanished decades ago, victims of disuse and decay. These huts are copies, based partly on the ghosts of post holes and foundation logs still found in the ground. But only the hearths survived just as they were then.

The little mementos - buttons, knives, pipe stems - have all been sifted out of the ground and studied to recapture the life of Washington's soldiers.
