SJCSAR Teaching at Redbank Battlefield

May 12, 2023

Rich Serfass, president of the SJC SAR, recently enjoyed the opportunity to lead a tour of the Red Bank Battlefield for a group of homeschool students and their parents. The tour took showcased both the battlefield and the historic 1748 Whitall House situated within it. The group demonstrated a commendable knowledge of the Revolutionary War, and it’s hoped that this excursion ignited fresh interest in the challenges faced in 1776.

The Red Bank Battlefield is an important historical site in Gloucester County, New Jersey. It was here that the Battle of Fort Mercer, a significant encounter of the Revolutionary War, took place. This battlefield serves as a crucial reminder of the struggle for independence, showcasing where Continental Army soldiers once stood their ground against the powerful British forces. This notable event in American history is marked by the Whitall House, a timeless landmark that, along with the battlefield itself, tells a story of bravery and resilience. Rich Serfass had the pleasure of revealing this story to the group, perhaps igniting a deeper appreciation for the sacrifices made during the Revolutionary War.
