Battle of Trenton

"The Battle of Trenton took place on December 26, 1776, during the Revolution, after General George Washington's crossed the Delaware River north of Trenton, New Jersey. The hazardous crossing in bad 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 reenlistments."[1]
