Summary Excerpt Comments

Award-winning book, "Jockey Hollow," explores how the beaten up and worn down Continental soldiers faced the harshest winter of the century and how they dealt with chronic supply shortages, desertions, enemy attacks, mutiny, and even treason by one of their beloved officers. The starving soldiers often went unpaid as well.  In fact, the Pennsylvania and Massachusetts Lines hadn’t been paid in a year!

The book highlights the depth of the soldiers’ conviction that America should be a free country and the price they were willing to pay to win that freedom. In his farewell address, General Washington lauded the soldiers, saying, “The unparalleled perseverance of the Armies of the United States. . .was little short of a standing miracle.”

For chronicling the impact of Jockey Hollow on the soldiers and ultimately on the second half of the American Revolution, "Jockey Hollow" is the recipient of the 2016 Bronze IPPY award for Best Mid-Atlantic Region Nonfiction and the 2016 Silver Moonbeam award among nonfiction nominees.

Today Jockey Hollow is part of Morristown National Historical Park, the first national historical park in the United States.

The author comments, “Jockey Hollow Park and I were neighbors for over twenty-five years.  During that time, I often heard park visitors remark that they knew nothing about this Revolutionary encampment prior to their visit.  That’s when I decided to introduce the Jockey Hollow soldiers to today’s young readers.”
