Nathaniel Scudder


Nathaniel Scudder was one of the most active patriots of New Jersey, during the Revolution. Having won the confidence of his fellow-citizens by his zeal and decision, he was, in 1777, elected to a seat in Congress. He continued a member of that body until November, 1779. He was a faithful servant of his country in the time of sorest need. After the great struggle had been brought to a successful termination, he took no part in public affairs.
