  • Retreat
  • Crossing The River
  • Setting Up Camp
  • The British had to retreat and run away from the Hessians. To get away the colonists have to cross the delaware river. If they crossed the river, they could be safe.
  • Preparing For War
  • The small army of 2400 people had to cross the river. George Washington was their leader and had to work fast otherwise they would have gotten trapped and gotten killed. They had to work fast and hard to get their supplies and men across the river.
  • Crossing Again
  • After the men crossing the Delaware River the men were exhausted. So Washington had decided to set up camp. After the camp was set up everyone slept and ate so they could get prepared for the work they are going to do the next day.
  • The Attack
  • After their day of rest Washington had to come up with a plan. He decided to attack the Hessians on Christmas night. He did this because the Hessians were going to be sleeping in from the parties they had the night of christmas.
  • Washington and his men went out for war on the Heshans that night. The men had done lots of work getting all of the men prepared and moving equipment like cannons and, guns. When they had successfully crossed the river, the men were exhausted and needed to rest, so washington pushed back the attack for the morning.
  • Early in the morning, the day after christmas, Washington decided to strike. People split into groups to surround the hessians. The british were completely surrounded. Without the British being ready, they were all killed, except some who were taken as prisoners. As Washington was very sure that he lost several men, he had lost zero men out of the thousands he had with him during the war.
