Following their victory at the Battle of Princeton on January 3, 1777, General George Washington and his army went to Morristown for winter quarters, where they arrived on January 6. This is the last of a series of thirteen markers showing the route taken by Washington's army from Princeton to Morristown. The other twelve markers in this series can be found in Princeton, Kingston, Griggstown, Bridgewater, Somerville, Bedminster, Bernardsville, Basking Ridge, and Harding Township.  [1]
