General Washington and the continental army retreat across New Jersey to the Pennsylvania shore after repeated losses to the Hessians.
Gaining possession of the only boats available, the Continental army cross the river, where they can not be reached by the Hessians.
After crossing, the army weigh’s out their options, keeping in mind of their dangerously low supplies of everything and the fact that the river will freeze over very soon, allowing the Hessians to cross.
Washington makes the decision to surprise attack the Hessians on the midnight of christmas. Everyone sees this as impossible, but they eventually give in.
The Continental army crosses over the river, arriving on the other side at 8:00 am. To their surprise, nearly everyone is still sleeping.
They attack, and achieve a stunning victory, capturing/killing off nearly all of the Hessians.
