My name is Jack Lawson I am 19, and I fought in the battle of Trenton. Today is December 25, 1776 and I and camped across the Delaware. It is freezing here! I am starting to get frost bites and a cold I hope it doesnt get worse.
Georgie Washionton has announced that we attack the Hessians tomorrow at dawn. We don't have enough men, but well make due. I hope I survive this battle because I get released next week. I haven't seen my family in a year.
Battle of Trenton
Today is December 26, 1776, we have set off for the Hessian mercenaries. I am one of the rowers, this is a dangerous trip because winter storms are raging and the ice is thick making it very difficult. My arms feel numb and cold from constantly rowing.
Are now making our way to the Hessian camp. My shoes are falling apart, the soal of the shoe is hanging by a thread. I am getting frostbites on my fingers and toes. Others are losing toes and leaving blood prints.
We are sneak attacking the Hessian Mersanaries. I am stationed at a cannon firing at drunk Hessian soldiers after their Christmas celebrations. They are very unorganized at their stations. I can smell the thick smell of gunpowder. The cannon man next to me, Jhon, has been shot in the head. I call for a medic but nobody comes.
The smoke has lifted and we have won, the Hessians have surrendered, everyone is cheering. Since we won this battle it has inspired me to lengthen my terms. I am so glad that General Wahington's plan worked!
