Took this shot just before heading to the car. Once you’ve walked the historical trail, on your way back you have to walk up Comb’s Hill. Once at the top, you turn around to see this beautiful view.. hard to picture a nasty battle going on here, but it did.
This is the Sutfin farmhouse that still stands at the battlefield.( If you’re interested in finding more info about the Battlefield, check out this link http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/monbat.html )
This is a view out over Monmouth Battlefield in Freehold, NJ. We lived here a couple years before we realized how close this was to our house, just about 20 minutes…so much has been built up around this battlefield, it is amazing that they have been able to preserve it at all!
