On a cold and snowy winter night, a band of ragged continental soldiers crossed the icy Delaware River in a surprise attack on the Hessian forces that occupied Trenton, New Jersey. This took place on the evening of December 25, 1776.
The Swan Historical Foundation has commissioned Lloyd Garrison, an artist from Red Bank, New Jersey, to prepare a historically correct rendering of the crossing. The image is as accurate as historical research and current knowledge of the events permit. The painting is on display in the Visitors Center at the National Museum of the American Revolution, located in Washington Crossing, New Jersey.
