Geocache Description:

Battle Pass in Prospect Park

In August of 1776, the stage was set for a confrontation between the forces of the British crown and the colonial rebels. The British had landed their troops near Gravesend on the 22nd, and set to oppose them, 7000 troops under John Sullivan.

Defensive efforts were focused on Valley Grove Pass, now Battle Pass - within Prospect Park, and a formidable barrier was created along the top of the ridge.

Unfortunately the British moved their troops in from the east in an outflanking maneuver and the colonial troops were forced to retreat.

Cache is a small camo'd lock-n-lock, hidden in the middle of the action. It's stocked with the usual McSwag - but with a new unactivated geocoin for the FTF.
