The Christmas Day Massacre

It doesn’t come up as often as it should but on Christmas night, 1776, General George Washington and his Revolutionary troops met just outside Philadelphia.  They planned to secretly cross the Delaware River so that they could surprise King George’s mercenary troops celebrating the holiday in New Jersey. So, grab some eggnog and get comfy, we’re going to talk about the Battle of Trenton.


Check out the visual companion below for lots of artistic interpretations of George Washington and his army at the Battle of Trenton.
