Details

During the American Revolutionary War on the night of December 25th, 1776, George Washington ordered an attack against the Hessian Soldiers in Trenton, NJ. Washington’s men used a collection of boats and cargo to travel across the frigid Delaware River. With the assistance of both General John Sullivan and General Horatio Gates' forces, in addition to militia, under the cover of darkness, American forces struggled thru brutal freezing conditions. Washington and his army achieved an unprecedented tactical surprise and delivered a much needed military and moral victory.

Every year, thousands gather at the river banks of the Delaware River to watch the reenactment of General George Washington’s Christmas crossing on December 25th to commemorate this pivotal point in the Revolution. After many military setbacks in the North, Washington’s bold move on Christmas night 1776 helped provide a sense of hope for the Colonial cause and cemented a pivotal moment in US history.
