The enemy advanced from Elizabethtown about five o'clock in the morning of June 23, 1780. By a planned pincer movement, Sir Henry Clinton hoped to cut off General Greene's army in Springfield center, move on to Morristown, and destroy Washington's base there. The enemy, under General Knyphausen, moved in two columns, one along the main road to Springfield; the other on the Vauxhall Road leading to Springfield's rear (now Millburn center). American militia and their leaders waited for them at every bridge, and although forced by superior numbers and arms to move up to higher ground, they fought so stubbornly that the enemy was finally halted. After setting fire to Springfield village, the British retreated to Staten Island. They were the last large enemy forces to fight in New Jersey. Washington was free to carry the attack to the South, culminating in Cornwallis's surrender at Yorktown, Virginia, on October 19, 1781.
