Excerpt
Excerpt: Sufferings of the army at Morristown rigorous winter derangement of the currency confusion in the commissariat impressments of supplies patriotic conduct of the people of New Jersey the bay of New York frozen over lord Stirling?s expedition against Staten Island Knyphausen?s incursion into the jerseys Caldwell?s church at Elizabeth town burnt character of its pas tor foray into Westchester county burning of Young?s house in the valley of the Neperan. The dreary encampment at Valley Forge has become proverbial for its hardships; yet they were scarcely more severe than those suffered by Washington s army during the present winter, while hutted among the heights of Morristown. The winter set in early, and was uncommonly rigorous. The transportation of supplies was obstructed; the magazines were exhausted, and the commissaries had neither money nor credit to enable them to replenish them. For weeks at a time the army was on half allowance; sometimes without meat, sometimes without bread, sometimes without both. There was a scarcity, too, of clothing and blankets, so that the poor soldiers were starving with cold as well as hunger.
