During this week’s episode, we discuss the battle of Trenton. It was Christmas time and General Washington was guarding Philadelphia against British forces opposite of his men on the Delaware River. With a snowstorm, lack of intelligence, outnumbered, and with most of his men’s enlistment expiring in a week, General Washington attacks the Hessians at Trenton.
