Hello history hunters. I do not know of any Rev War personage in Bayonne at this time. I do know that the British used Bayonne to forage for livestock and wood to supply themselves on Manhattan. At the end of the Rev War, General Washington, on his barge to say good-by to his officers in Manhattan, received a salute from citizens on both shorelines. There was much cheering and gunfire salutes, both musket and cannon. Attached are two photos of Bayonne, one is much before 1860, the other 1967 showing Bergen Point filled in on what is now Texaco property. I hope some of the information was interesting and informative to you. If I get any more information, I will pass it on. Keep digging responsibly.
