Washington Crossing Pennsylvania State Park Photos

On Christmas Day 1776, George Washington & the Continental army crossed the ice covered Delaware River on its way to Trenton, NJ, where they surprised & defeated 1500 British-Hessian (German) mercenaries. This morale boosting victory was symbolized by the crossing & became an American icon. The crossing site was a small village that had a very small fleet of ferry row boats. The village was renamed Washington Crossing & has been preserved in time.
