Washington Crossing Reenactment Held Christmas Day

December 25, 2021

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
