    • HISTORICAL CONTENT: Washington finally gets a victory when he re-crosses the Delaware River on Christmas Day, in a surprise move the British commander does not suspect.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.
