233 years ago George Washington led his men across the Delaware River to a decisive victory against Hessian soldiers in Trenton, New Jersey. That victory followed by a victory at the Battle of Princeton is generally credited for boosting the morale of Washington’s men and encouraging re-enlistments. Without those victories the Revolutionary War may have ended differently.
History Animated has produced animations of the Battles of Trenton and Princeton. The animations show the movements of the armies during the Revolutionary War.
