Timeline

Wendsday,December 25, 1776 Thursday, December 26, 1776

When General Howe offered a statement promising to “remain in peaceful obedience” to the king, thousands took him up for his word and Washington was getting desperate. George Washington knew he had to do something and fast. He gathered the rest of his troops and read The Crisis by Thomas Paine. He read, These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.Washington came up with a plan to suprise attack the Hessians who camped in Trenton, New Jersey. To make it a surprise attack, the had to cross the icy Delaware River. A man said that the guns were too wet to fire, in which George replied " “Use the bayonets,” “The town must be taken." When they got their, they found them happily sleeping off their christmas feasts. George Washington took a total of 868 prisoners, without losing a single man, then caught another 300 men in Princeton, New Jersey. Now General Howe knew that it would take more than capturing New York City and issuing pardons to win the war.
