The Crossing of the Delaware White Sculpture
On December 24, 1776, General George Washington crossed the ice-choked Delaware River to lead a surprise attack against a garrison of English troops and battle-hardened Hessian mercenaries in the Battle at Trenton. This overwhelming and miraculous victory turned the tide in the war and changed the course of history. The circa 1853 engraving which honors this event, “Washington Crossing the Delaware”, by Paul Girardet, is the inspiration for this endearing sculpture. The white resin sculpture is set on a 5”x 9” x ½” base. The maximum height of sculpture is 4”.
