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. Written by

Washington needed a victory, they got a miracle.
Did You Know?
On December 20, 1776, outside Trenton, General Stirling tells General Washington that General Gates's army "will be with you by nightfall". This conversation is in full daylight, yet Washington then checks his watch and the time is 5:00 - by which time the sun would already have set. (And indeed, in a later scene we see it fully dark at 5:10 pm on December 25). See more
