The Affair or Battle of Cedar Bridge 2009! History Alive!

The Affair or Battle of Cedar Bridge 2009, 227 Years Later

The 2009 reenactment of the Battle of Cedar Bridge in Barnegat took place on December 27th, 227 years after it was originally fought.  The weather was warm and sunny, I wonder how much different the scene at the Old Cedar Bridge Tavern really was.

Cedar Bridge Tavern

The original Cedar Bridge Tavern in 1782 had no porch, and the two windows to the left were part of an addition in the 1800's.

Refreshment at Cedar Bridge

The Burlington Militia stops for refreshment at the Cedar Bridge Tavern, after a fruitless search of Manahawkin for John Bacon and other Loyalists.

What do they find on the Bridge, Bacon and some of his followers.

Battle of Cedar Bridge-2

A skirmish ensues (at that time they called it an Affair).

Battle of Cedar Bridge-3

Finally locals, hearing the commotion rally and provide cover for Bacon and his men to escape into the Pinelands.

And so ended the Battle of Cedar Bridge, said to be New Jersey's last skirmish of the Revolution.
