Washington’s victory at Trenton was a relatively small battle lasting about 45 minutes. This victory has been described as a miracle and the savior of the revolution. There were three distinct phases to this battle and each was deemed impossible however thanks to some truly remarkable people each was accomplished. The crossing of the Delaware, the ten mile night march to Trenton in a sleet/snow storm and the actual battle were each accomplished against seemingly impossible odds. Who were the remarkable men who completed this superhuman feat? This presentation will discuss the remarkable demonstrations of leadership, courage, sacrifice and determination exhibited by the solders, mariners and leaders of this ragtag army that in the previous year had suffered nothing but defeat and retreat.
