Here the British turned into Galloping Hill Road from Elizabethtown to Connecticut Farms and Springfield at the time of the battles June 7 and 23, 1780.

Washington afterwards said of the New Jersey militia "They flew to arms universally, and acted with a spirit equal to anything I have seen during the war"

A son of Gen. William Crane is said to have been bayoneted to death by British soldiers near this spot.
