Storyboard Text

  • George Washington and his army cross the Delaware river
  • Crossing the Delaware river
  • Arriving at Trenton
  • I am going to split you up into two separate columns.
  •  George Washington told me that he realized that a lot of his men's enlistment expires at the end of this year (1776). George Washington said that he decided that he needed to do something to save his army. So I crossed the Delaware river on Christmas, at nighttime, with George Washington and the rest of his army. 
  • The attack at Trenton
  • George Washington had three columns of boats. The icy Delaware river turned back two of the columns, expect the one that he and I were on. I was surprised that we made it across the Delaware river.
  • The attack at Trenton
  • George Washington mentioned to me that we were a little behind schedule. He said that we had arrived on the perimeter or the outskirts of Trenton. So George Wahington split his army into two separate columns.  He said the one commanded by Nathaniel Greene attacked the North, and the one commanded by John Sullivan attacked the South. I went with John Sullivan.
  • George Washington's victory
  • I was glad that we had caught Johann Rall by surprise. From what I know, Johann Rall was the commander of the Hessian garrison at Trenton.
  • Even though the battle didn't last long, I was still exhausted from all of the fighting. I am sure all of the Germans were too.
  •   I was very excited when we had an amazing victory at the battle of Trenton. Also, George Washington, me, and the rest of his army were able to capture some of the supplies that we needed.  (The website I used was www.battlefields.org )
