Historic Morristown, N.J.: The Story of Its First Century
This classic local history chronicles the settlement of Moristown from the early 1700s through the Revolution. General Washington''s army spent two winters in Morristown, and the author devotes a substantial portion of the narrative to those encampments. Local lore and legend includes the tales of the "Morristown Ghost," and Tempe Wick as well as detailed reports of Masonic meetings during the Revolution and the court martial of Benedict Arnold.
The original book included about one hundred illustrations, mostly half-tones previously published in a newspaper serial. Their quality leaves much to be desired, and their combined digital volume would make a fully-illustrated PDF edition too large for convenient download. Some of the illustrations are embedded in the text, the rest are linked to the thumbnails at http://www.DigitalAntiquaria.com/HMNJ.
The Digital Edition (Adobe PDF 1.4)is published in portrait orientation; fully-searchable, fully-printable.
