On June 10, 1779, a British raiding party under Lieutenant James Moody marched from Tinton Falls to Black Point.

When embarking for Sandy Hook they were attacked by a detachment of the Continental Army.

The Americans lost eleven, killed or wounded, including Captain Chadwick and Lieutenant Hendrickson. The engagement was broken off under a flag of truce, both forces returning to their own lines.
