This map shows George Washington’s triumph at Trenton, New Jersey. After crossing the icy Delaware River late on Christmas Day 1776, Washington’s forces struck the Hessian garrison in Trenton on the morning of December 26. Washington’s attack mortally wounded Col.

This stunning victory served to rebuild American morale after a summer of defeats and setbacks.
