The Razing of Tinton Falls

The Razing of Tinton Falls

(2012)
A novel by

 
On June 10, 1779, a Loyalist raiding party landed on the shore of Monmouth County, New Jersey, and advanced unnoticed on the town of Tinton Falls. It captured five leading Patriots and plundered many others. Homes and barns were burned to the ground; stores were looted and livestock driven off. The local militia scattered. That afternoon, as the raiders loaded their barges, a reinforced militia engaged the Loyalists in a battle that climaxed with vicious hand-to-hand combat. Historian Michael Adelberg brings the Tinton Falls raid to life, re-creating the day in the voices of ten narrators based on real people--a child of a Revolutionary leader, a Loyalist officer, a militiaman, a pacifist, a businesswoman and many others--each of whom experienced the day very differently.
