George Washington was telling some of his men the plan. Which was to cross the river and find where the Hessians live. They need to go to the Hessians instead of them coming to us.
Attacking the Guard House
Americans followed George Washington's plan. plans to cross the Delaware River with his army of men. Each boat had about 10 men. So they had to take several boats to get across the Delaware river with the whole army.
Attacking the Hessians in Trenton
The Americans Split up into two different groups. They chose two groups to surround the Hessians from both sides. They did this because there was no other way to go. The Americans blocked them from going anywhere. They hessians were blocked.
Shot the Leader
My soldiers are all good men don't take anything from them
George Washington's men when into the guard house.The men killed about five watchmen for the Hessians. They were using their swords to kill them. They were slicing and dicing them in the guts, the heads and ect.
On the morning after Christmas the colonists attacked the Hessians at Trenton. Most of the Hessians were still asleep so it was less mean to fight or surround. Not long into the battle they had them surrounded and the Hessians surrendered! The colonists had all of the Hessians captured and more supplies.
When the leader got shot he asked Washington to not steal anything from them. He said that he can take there weapons but not there money or lives. After taking the victory the Americans got a lot of prisoners, cannons, horses, clothing, food ingredients and etc.
