Crossing the Delaware with Friends

On December 25, 1776, General George Washington and a small army of 2400 men crossed the Delaware River, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, on their way to successfully attack a Hessian garrison of 1500 at Trenton, New Jersey. This march, at one of the lowest points of the American Revolution, gave the Patriots new hope after their failed effort to keep the British from occupying New York City.

We visited Washington’s Crossing with our friends which made it even more special.  We had read about this event many times and it was neat to see where it really happened.

We chose to use the bridge for our crossing and even that was a bit scary for me.  It is a very narrow bridge, but even Cloe made it across.

It was great to spend time with Anthony, Natalie and Jill.  We had really missed them!  IMG_8860

    Did you do the capital of Delaware yet? We have tracked a lot of the civil war but little of the revolutionary we need to study George more.
