During the Revolution, the Cape May pilots struck at British coastwise shipping and the residents remaining ashore acted as anti-British spies. These Patriots relayed information by pony express to Philadelphia by galloping through the Pinelands quite a distance away. There was also a company of 'Minute Men" from Cape May. This company was independent of the Light Infantry and Rangers but their uniforms conformed as nearly as possible to the uniforms of the riflemen in the Continental Service.
