This plaque is dedicated to
those brave men of
the New Jersey Militia and Continental Army
who fought the Battle of Springfield
June 7 to June 23, 1780.

The battle took place between the bridge crossing
near Morris Avenue and the east
branch of the Rahway River and west to
the second bridge at Van Winkles Brook.

The British defeat here ended their
stronghold in New Jersey and removed all
threat to the Continental Army.
