really liked it
Recommended for: Anyone

I learned that a German painted the potrait as an inspiration as to what was going on in Germany/Europe in the 1800s. My great-great-great-great grandfather was there...and probably took part in it according to records. Cool!
I didn't realize that there were two battles of Trenton, and that Washington took the army away on the second battle in order to get in the rear of Cornwallis' army and attack at Princeton.
The amount of suffering those troops went through to accomplish all of this was remarkable. I still say today's special forces have nothing on these guys. Good read for anyone who loves the history of this still great nation.
