  • Where can we get some boats?
  • Getting The Boats
  • Exuse us, sir.  We have come to borrow some boats to transport General Washingtons Army.
  • You are horrible for stealing my boats!
  • The Plan
  • WHAT?!?
  • We are going to attack the Hessians on Christmas moring.  They will never see it coming!
  • Americans have retreated from NY and are being followed by Enemies.  They come up with a plan to steal boats to get across the river-wich is the only way to escape.
  • Going Back Across The River
  •  Colonel Glover was sent to acquire the boats from a local man. Even though the man was not happy with it, the army still acquired the boats. 
  • The Attack
  • General Washington comes up with a plan to launch a suprise attack the Hessians on Christmas morning.  Some dissagree, but in the end, Washington wins.
  • Victory!
  • They headed back across the river at 5:30.  They did not make it to the other side in time, so Washington decides they will have to attack in daylight.
  • The Hessians were very suprised by the attack.  Many of them were killed.  
  • The Hessian leader, Colonel Ral, was shot, and he ordered a surrender.  The Americans did not lose any soldiers. 
  • I have been shot! SURRENDER!
