Episode 134 The Battle of Bound Brook

February 2, 2020

A large British force attacks General Lincoln at Bound Brook New Jersey.  Lord Cornwallis hopes to capture the relatively isolated Continental force that is posted to defend Washington's southern flank.  The British scatter the surprised Americans who mostly flee the scene.  Washington sends a column under General Greene to retake Bound Brook and harass the British column as it returns to its base that same day.
