Tuesday Photo Challenge: Trio…

7 Comments

One of the main focal points on the central Green in Morristown, New Jersey is the life-sized sculptural grouping of General Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and the Marquis de Lafayette, known as “The Alliance.” It commemorates Lafayette’s arrival with news of French support for the American cause. Washington used Jacob Arnold’s Tavern adjacent to the Green as his headquarters during the winter of 1777. During this winter Washington ordered the inoculation of his soldiers, saving thousands and preserving his army.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

  1. Nice capture for the trio theme 🙂

  2. Thank you so much. Powerful trio 🙂

  3. Very important trio – good things happened from their association! And in NJ too! (as a NJ native I can be proud of that). Very lifelike sculptures. Great choice.

  4. Thank you. A lot of historical and important events took place in NJ. I love my home state. What county are you from? I’m in Morris.

  5. I think I’ll plan a trip from Skillman to the Green in Morristown to see these sculptures.
