George Washington Crosses Delaware River In Annual Christmas Day Revolutionary War Reenactment


“Thousands of spectators gathered along the Delaware River this afternoon for the annual Christmas Day reenactment of George Washington’s historic crossing in 1776. General Washington launched his surprise attack on Trenton with a risky mid-winter crossing and nine-mile march to Trenton. The victory, followed by two more within 10 days, would prove pivotal in cementing Washington as a respected leader and ultimately helped turn the tides of the Revolutionary War.
