Nonsense, Fort, the popular name of a defensive work on the hills overlooking Morristown, N. J., projected by Washington to keep his discouraged and famished army from revolting during the winter of 1779-1780. The soldiers worked on its construction till relief supplies were received. The Washington Association of New Jersey erected a memorial stone on the site of the earthworks in 1888.
