Hello, Capt Pete here, sorry for the long delay in responding. The first are documents of the revolution which mention british forces, probably German, firing at our small fort on Bergen Point from Staten Island. The second our cannons shooting at their ships near Shooter’s Island. The next map from Dr Robinson’s maps, our local historian, shows the primitive log fort and house at Bergen Point, now Texaco’s property. Much of this property was filled in over time to approximately double the land mass. A more modern map would show the change in size. A second fort, Fort Delancey was constructed at approximately 51st. in Bayonne, N.J.. This fort changed hands a few times between our militiamen and the British. More maps and information to follow.
