Forum members may be interested in an article published on July 10 in the online Journal of the American Revolution, "The Battle of Bennett's Island: The New Jersey Site Rediscovered." In addition to the geographical detail promised in the subtitle, the article places the battle in the wider context of the war in NJ, and in particular explores the role of Major Richard Witham Stockton, cousin of the more celebrated signer of the Declaration, known variously as "Double Dick" or "the renowned land pilot" depending on whose side one was on.
