Transmission Blown?

2000 Wrangler Sport: So, I did something completely foolish, and feeling sick to my stomach. Hoping ya'll can shed some light. I am PCSing to VA with household goods and Jeep in tow. At the start of my trip, I secured the front wheels on the hitch, but forgot to let off the parking break and not sure if it was also in gear. Didn't realize my mistake for about a half mile. Back tires worn down and Jeep will not start. I push clutch all the way in, turn key, and there is just a humming sound - think from the starter, but does not engage. I put it in any gear and it rolls as if in neutral.

Clutch feels normal when I push it in. Tried jumping as a last ditch hopeful effort, but useless. Do I have to adk if tranny blown? Any insight GREATLY appreciated, thank you.

Did you have the transfer case in neutral?
