General Washington, I don't think there is any way we can make it acro-
Alexander Hamilton writes a letter with Washington’s words to Congress, the letter talks about how they are desperate and they don’t have enough food and how many of the men are ill or suffering from frostbite and don’t have the proper attire to fight.
General Glover, I understand this now, we no longer have the darkness on our side.
General Glover approaches a man with American army asking, well more like telling, this fisherman that they were going to need his boats so that the Americans can cross the river and attack the Hessians.
The men begin preparing the boats to cross the river in the cold with many men freezing and ill. This process takes many hours to get all the men onto their boats and takes much of the night to get to the Hessians.
How many men did we lose? -- And wounded?
Washington soon realized that there would be no way for him to be able to make it across the lake in the time he had hoped to. His whole plan to use the darkness to their advantage so that the Hessians would not be able to them but unfortunately they did not have that on their side.
Americans march to the hessian base and still have the surprise side of the attack on their side and they use it to there advantage and begin fighting with the Hessians. The fight doesn't last lost and then one of our Americans shoots Colonel Raal and the Hessians surrender and the Americans have won their first battle.
Once the battle is over Washington asks General Mercer how many men they lost and he responds with none and no men were wounded. So not only had they won their first battle in 12 months but they also hadn’t lost any of there men in this battle and they took home many Hessians as prisoners with them.
