As we celebrate Christmas we should not forget about Trenton.....
One of my favorite history blogs posted a subject worthy of note this week about Washington crossing the Delaware. You can read the article here http://americanrevolutionblog.blogspot.com/
We are reminded not to forget about Trenton which was a pivotal point in the American revolution. In 1776, during the early morning of December 25th, Washington led his troops across the treacherous Delaware river through freezing waters, raging winds, snow and sleet to win the battle that is often called 'the battle that lost the war for Britain'. Washington's army was ill-equipped and a great percentage of his men did not even have shoes. We should not forget these brave men who gave up so much so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have today.
The town of Trenton hosted a Patriotic week celebration in honor of this event and some of the highlights can be seen in the following video.
