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.

During the Battle of Princeton, a cannon ball went through a window of Nassau Hall of the College of New Jersey (now known as Princeton University) and hit a portrait of King George II (George III's grandfather and predecessor), lopping off his head. A mark made by another cannon ball that hit Nassau Hall during the battle can still be seen to this day. See more
During the attack, when a cannon has been fired, in the next scene, at the bottom-left of the screen, an air ramp can be seen shooting one of the Hessians into the air. See more

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