On September 1, 1780
Captain Joshua Huddy
was captured at Colts Neck
by a band of Tories.

While being conveyed across
the river to what is now Sea Bright,
the boat was fired upon
by Colonial forces.

Although wounded,
Captain Huddy escaped
by jumping from the boat and
swimming to the western shore.
Subsequently he was captured
by the British and hanged
on April 12, 1782 at the Highlands.
