Though these men had just experienced an incredibly tough loss in New York just a couple months prior, they never gave up. If they hadn’t persisted through the harsh Northeastern winter, then one of the most monumental battles of the Revolutionary War would not have been won by Washington’s army, and the cause for freedom may have been lost.

Captured by Instagrammer @pete673Growing up in Trenton, I have always been enamored with George Washington and the Battle of Trenton. Over the years, I would occasionally visit Washington Crossing Park and the annual crossing reenactment. I am now lucky enough to live less than a quarter mile from the very site where General Washington and his troops crossed the Delaware River and changed the direction of the Revolution. I now
