The Battle Of Trenton 1776
Photograph - Photograph
The Battle of Trenton took place on December 26, 1776, during the American Revolutionary War, after General George Washington's crossing of the Delaware River north of Trenton, New Jersey. The hazardous crossing in adverse weather made it possible for Washington to lead the main body of the Continental Army against Hessian soldiers garrisoned at Trenton. After a brief battle, nearly the entire Hessian force was captured, with negligible losses to the Americans. The battle significantly boosted the Continental Army's flagging morale, and inspired re-enlistments. General George Washington, on the white charger, is conferring with General Nathaniel Greene as the mortally injured Hessian, Colonel Johann Rall, falls from his horse.
