After encamping June 21 and 22, 1778 Coryell's Ferry (Lambertville), Washington's army marched out towards Hopewell early on the morning of the 23rd. Their march passed through here.

They were in pursuit of British troops who had left Philadelphia on June 18, and were marching across New Jersey to New York City, the main British stronghold in America throughout the Revolutionary War.

The two armies would meet at Monmouth Courthouse (Freehold) on June 28, and fight the Battle of Monmouth. [1]
