    • Sarah:(Writing) I am, of course, still loyal to my king, but England faces a bigger challenge than she thought.

    • Sarah: (Writing) Dear mother, I know that I have been in the presence of a true military genius.

    • Sarah: Most Generals, when they get that much power, become dictators.

    • Washington: Are there any volunteers? James: (Whispering) Please, somebody! Private Hughes: Oh, heck! I will if someone else will! I can't fight this war alone.

    • Hessian Soldier: (After seeing Colonel Rall lying on the ground) Are you hurt? Rall: Yes, I've been hit. I cannot stand. I cannot move. Hessian Soldier: Let me see the wound. (Soldier moves him, and a piece of paper falls out) Rall: Oh, the note. Colonel Rall, Washington is crossing the Delaware. He is mounting an attack. You must rally your troops immediatly. If only I had read this note, I would not be lying here.

    • HISTORICAL CONTENT: Washington finally gets a victory when he re-crosses the Delaware River on Christmas Day, in a surprise move the British commander does not suspect. His troops defeat the sleeping Hessians at Trenton and then Washington lights campfires to make it look like his men are bunking down for the night. Instead they march to Princeton and another victory. The country celebrates; and morale is restored amongst the soldiers.
