Storyline

In 1776, less than six months after the Declaraton of Independence, the Continental Army, under the command of General George Washington, was on the brink of utter defeat. Low on men, cannons and supplies, Washington decides to risk everything on one last desperately daring attack on the town of Trenton where over 1000 of the feared Hessian mercenaries are garrisoned. However to do that, the army must cross the Delaware to a seemingly hopeless battle that would turn out to be more successful than Washington ever dreamed of.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Though he cast his lot with the Patriot cause, Major General William Alexander claimed to be the Earl of Stirling, a Lord in the Peerage of Scotland. The claim, however, was never fully substantiated. Officers (including Washington) and men alike often referred to him as Lord Stirling. See more »

Goofs

When Washington is lying on the bed the bottom of his boots are visible. The boots are curved for the left and right foot, but during the Revolutionary War, there was no such thing as a left boot or a right boot, they were straight. See more »

Quotes

Gen. Horatio Gates: Those big Durham boats of yours make damn good targets. Even a Yankee gunner couldn't miss them.

An excellent film that held my attention from the beginning.
31 August 2001 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Ever since I was a young school boy, I have seen the famous painting of General Washington crossing a river in a boat. Now I can appreciate just how significant this event is in the history of the USA. This film was a very pleasant surprise - one of the many 'sleepers' that never get much publicity (at least not here in NZ) but is in fact a quality film that is well worth watching.
