AAA Editor Notes
Red Bank Battlefield Park (Fort Mercer) is 2 mi. w. of I-295 at 100 Hessian Ave., on the riverfront. During the Revolutionary War Fort Mercer was hastily built at this site to protect the Delaware River and the port of Philadelphia from British forces. In October 1777, 400 Patriots under Gen. Christopher Greene vanquished 1,200 Britons and Hessians led by Count Van Donop. Also at the site is the restored dwelling of Ann Whitall, who allegedly spun wool while the battle raged around her home.
