Bergen County Voices from the American Revolution:: Soldiers and Residents in Their Own Words (Military) (Paperback)
The stories of the Revolutionary soldiers of Bergen County as told by Revolutionary War expert Tood W. Braisted.
Bergen County saw much of the American Revolution from its own doorstep. Close to British-occupied New York City, this corner of New Jersey was divided by the Revolution. Some people were staunch Loyalists or Patriots, in disagreement with their families and neighbors. Others wavered or remained neutral, while others changed their minds as was expedient. In the end, the years of hostilities led to massive damage and upheaval within the community as men either left home or stayed nearby to fight for or against secession from Great Britain.
