HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP, NJ (MERCER)–On December 25, 1776, General George Washington and more than 2,000 troops crossed the Delaware River under the cover of night, amid a Nor’easter. After crossing to New Jersey, the battles that took place over the next ten days turned the tide of the Revolution. Each year, Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA) hosts a reenactment of Washington’s crossing on Christmas Day.
Today’s reenactment was held at 1:00 p.m. Photos below by: Brian McCarthy, OnScene News
