Victory or Death: The Battles of Trenton and Princeton, December 25 - January 3, 1777, presented by Mark Maloy

Just six months after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, George Washington and the new American Army sit on the verge of utter destruction by the banks of the Delaware River. Rather than submit to defeat, Washington and his small band of soldiers crossed the ice-choked Delaware River and attacked the Hessian garrison at Trenton, New Jersey on the day after Christmas. He followed up the surprise attack with successful actions along the Assunpink Creek and at Princeton. In this lecture, Maloy will discuss the stunning military campaign that allowed Washington to turn the tables, and breathe life into the dying cause for liberty during the Revolutionary War.

This lecture will take place using Zoom. Fill out the form on our website to register, and you will receive an email with a link to the lecture the afternoon of August 6.
