“Up Goes Huddy” Captain Joshua Huddy’s Untimely Execution

Joshua Huddy was reputed to be the Loyalist’s worst enemy during the American Revolutionary War. In 1782, during a skirmish while defending the naval base and saltworks at Toms River, Huddy was taken to New York and executed by the Board of Associated Loyalists on the banks of the Raritan Bay. This execution threatened the Paris Peace Treaty which was being negotiated at the time. John Fabiano, Executive Director of the Monmouth County Historical Commission, will explore Joshua Huddy’s Revolutionary War service, untimely execution and the circumstances leading to the Treaty’s eventual success. We welcome you to join him as he explores this fascinating story.
