Morristown, known as the “Military Capital of the Revolution”, played host during two winters to General George Washington and the Continental Army in 1777 and 1779-80. Ever since then Morris County has taken July 4 seriously and as the Founding Fathers intended! The locals pull out all the stops each summer beginning with Morristown National Historical Park’s reading of the Declaration of Independence on the historic Morristown Green.
During 2014 New Jersey will celebrate the 350th anniversary of its founding with special events throughout the year.
July 4th in Morristown during the anniversary year promises to be even more exciting than usual as our fight for freedom and liberty will seem even more precious on this day.
