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.
