Morristown, New Jersey: Washington's Headquarters
General George Washington spent a couple of winters in the Morristown, New Jersey, area during the Revolutionary War. The Ford Mansion is available for guided tours to see where he lived in that time. Of course, you have to get there before closing time (we didn't). Therefore, we had to be happy with seeing this spiffy if shady statue of Washington across the street. There is an historical part a few miles away from the headquarters where the troops stayed; it's worth a visit if you want to learn more about the Continental Army.
