  • This is Just the Beginning
  • The army is tired and hasn't eaten in weeks, with few men left an attack on the nearby Hessians stationed in Trenton would be suicidal, so the other men from the other two generals must join forces with Washington.
  • The Generals meet up and prepare to cross, although there is worry about time. They cross while it is dark, and make it to Trenton at a little before 8:00
  • The attack begins at 8 the Hessians are taken completely by surprise, the attack goes well, no men die and none are wounded. The Hessians disperse never to exist again and George Washington ends his drought, and starts the rainy season.
