Please bear with us

We're pretty sure we're not the only ones who are having a busy week, but we just wanted to say that soon we will get back on track with posting FNJ adventures!  We have loads of past places we have been that we'd like to add, but also, December is right around the corner so I will be researching some upcoming local events to list as I did for November.

Hope you are having a wonderful autumn, so far, and that we have given you some ideas to try out before the weather gets bitterly cold!  (Brrrrrrrr!)

And, most of all, we'd like to wish you and your loved ones...

A Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving!

The monster hunger still attended us. Here was the army starved and naked and there their country sitting still and expecting the army to do notable things.

These were the conditions observed by Private Joseph Martin during the winter of 1779. The Continental army were encamped in the woodlands of Jockey Hollow, south of Morristown. The army cleared much of the woodland of Jockey Hollow to build a fortification of huts. These huts no longer exist today, but archaeological remains made possible the building of replicas.
