Bound Brook in Somerset County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Enigma of the British Army
Clinton, during the second encampment (1778-79), determined Middlebrook too strong and Washington’s troops too numerous (8,000) to be “rashly attempted”, with his force of 22,000 in the New York-Rhode Island area.
Erected by Washington Camp Ground Association.
