Washington Township in Franklin County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Battle of Monterey Pass
Stop the Wagons
General Jones arrived and ordered the wagons to keep moving. He wanted to keep the flow of traffic moving and would rather risk losing several wagons than have the traffic stopped and potentially lose all the wagons. Jones countered Captain Emack’s decision.
Captain Emack returned to the area of the Monterey Inn and was forced to hold the line there, buying as much time as he could in order for more of the wagons to clear the Monterey Pass tollhouse.
