A concise look at the American Revolution in 1776, the year George Washington and his army experienced numerous defeats, forcing them to retreat from New Jersey to Pennsylvania by December.

On the morning of December 26, he led his troops across the icy Delaware River, from the site of the historic park, and attacked the unsuspecting Hessians at Trenton. The victory aroused a new spirit in the army and changed the course of the war.
