[Map]: Battles, skirmishes, and other events in New Jersey in 1775 to 1783 ... Compiled by J.D. Alden of the Sons of the American Revolution Jan. 1, 1945

It also lists several sea battles off the New Jersey coast and in the Delaware Bay. In 2007 Alden's map was digitized by students for an Advanced Geomatics project at Rutgers University: "Utilizing the Alden map, an extensive GIS database was developed by digitizing over 700 locations including all major battles, known skirmishes, and places of interest."
