Some of the darkest days of the American Revolution are associated with troop movements and encampments in the Raritan Valley of New Jersey. New Brunswick was the meeting place of Committees of Correspondence, as well as of the Provincial Congress. The British occupied New Brunswick, armies of both sides marched to and fro, and the destruction of homes and property infuriated both Loyalists and Patriots. The Vermeule, Field, Frelinghuysen, Middagh and other colonial families are discussed.
