Storyboard Text

  • George Washington's troop crossed the icy Delaware River.
  • We must sail past this icy Delaware River to get back Trenton and finally get a win from the Hessians.
  • Colonists got to Trenton and surprised the Hessians.
  • We are outnumbered,bu it doesn't matter we will fight and win anyway.
  • We have ambushed them, troop! Now it is time to attack and win for the first time. We shall get Trenton back.
  • We shall win!
  • Hessians are scared and ran away. Colonists found them and hold off a bridge so they can't escape.
  • Let us pass through the bridge, if not we will fight back.
  • We shall not, we will hold off this bridge and make sure no one escapes.
  • George Washington and his troops such as John Sullivan and Nathanael Greene went from Philadelphia to the Delaware River on December 25th 1776. They did this after losing New York in the Battle of New York. He was determined to defeat the Hessians, who were mercenaries the British hired to help win the war. Despite it being icy, he crossed it to get some winnings against them.
  • George Washington and his troops are happy with the win and the Hessians lost many people.
  • I was losing hope in the cause before this win, General, but now I will continue fighting.
  • Sir, the colonists' army are strong, I am doubting that we have a chance to win now.
  • After a difficult challenge of getting all the men on the Delaware River. George Washington and his troops trekked to Trenton, New Jersey on December 26th. He met up with the Hessians and the Battle of Trenton was started. They surprised the Hessians because it was the day after Christmas and most Hessians were drunk. They were under the rule of Colonel Johann Rall and were just holding off roads from inland towards Trenton.
  • Feeling confident about their win, the troops continue fighting and get another win in the Battle of Princeton.
  • Oh no the colonists are a real threat, but we can't give up, we will invade and try to win this battle.
  • I am also worried about the colonists, can we really win?
  • The ambush caused some of the Hessians to try to run away. The colonists wouldn't let this happen because in battles, you want most of the enemies captured so they won't pose a threat. Therefore, James Stark and some others in George Washington's troop went over the Trenton bridge that lead the Assanpink Creek leading to a British post. They made sure most of Hessian foot soldiers got captured or died.
  • Casualties, wounded and captured for each side.
  • The quick and subtle ambush and holding off the bridge for the Hessians to escape caused a great win for the Americans. They got Trenton back from British hands and boosted colonists' morale. Before this win, colonists had lost most of the battles and they were feeling down. Winning this battle proved to them they do have a chance against the British and shouldn't give up. It made it more difficult for the Hessians to fight because they lost so many people, giving the colonists the upper hand.
  • We did it troop! Finally, we have won our first victory, we can actually win this war.
  • General, my wife just sent a carrier pigeon, everyone has heard of our amazing win! They now believe we can win this war and are feeling better.
  • Come on troop,we can take on this British invasion to Princeton. We have won one battle and we can win another.
  • After the victorious win at the Battle of Trenton, this made George Washington confident to follow British troops advancing to Princeton,which led to the Battle of Princeton, on the date January 3rd,1777. This simple battle gave the colonists confidence to go on and win the Battle of Princeton too. However, this battle didn't make the British as happy, because they realized that they should actually now be viewing the colonists as a real threat and that they have a chance of losing.
  • Yes General, we shall win!
  • There were 22 casualties. Also, there was 86 people wounded, and 906 people captured. The colonists on the other hand, had only 2 casualties. There was only 5 people wounded and no one captured for them.
