Huyler's Landing was one of the points at which General Cornwallis and his forces, after taking New York City, crossed into New Jersey to pursue Washington's battered Patriot Army. North of Fort Lee, where the Patriots had been encamped, the crossing offered Cornwallis a way to scatter the forces without a contested crossing.
This crossing set the stage for the ensuing New Jersey campaign and the Ten Crucial Days at the turn of the year, where Washington would win upset victories at Trenton and Princeton.
