The Affair at Cedar Bridge
Join us for the Sunday, December 17 at 2:00pm, the reenactment at Cedar Bridge Tavern Historic Site, 200 Old Halfway Road in Barnegat, commemorates, what is considered the last skirmish of the Revolutionary War. The skirmish, which took place across from the old Cedar Bridge Tavern was actually a "civil war" between a band of American Loyalists, headed by Captain John Bacon, a renowned privateer and Pinelands bandit; and American Patriots. The last of the Loyalists were "refugees" hiding out in the Pine Barrens near Manahawkin. It is definitely the last battle of the 'civil' war that raged in New Jersey during the Revolution. This is a free public event.
