Englishtown in Monmouth County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Hold the Hedgerow!
Outflanked, the Continentals abandoned the hedgerow and fled across the bridge, but not before decimating the ranks of British grenadiers. The ground east of the hedgerow was strewn with dead and wounded.
The delay was brief, but long enough. By the time Lee's last groups had crossed the bridge, thousand of Continentals were formed on Perrine’s Hill, ready and waiting.
