Battlefield Visits, Revolutionary War Edition: The Battle of Quinton’s Bridge

From my travels, September 7, 2020.

This was a quick drive-through as our family was on our way back from visiting the beach in Stone Harbor, NJ. Because of traffic, we took a different route than normal, and ended up crossing over the modern bridge at the site.

There is a roadside marker here describing the action of the Battle of Quinton’s Bridge, but the ground is all private property, and I didn’t have a safe place to pull off and even take my own photo. While the field is probably mostly intact, I have to imagine that the approaches are somewhat different than they were in 1778.
