The Battle of Bound Brook resulted in a shallow defeat of the Americans stationed at Bound Brook, New Jersey on April 13, 1777. A four prong attack by 4,000 British upon Bound Brook ensued, and the Americans, who defeat a fierce resistance at first, retreated. Around 60 casualties occurred on the American sides, while only a single British soldier was killed. On the same day, Nathanael Greene recaptured Bound Brook, but George Washington realized the difficulty of defending the place.
