This picture represents Washington, with one division of his troops under Gen. Sullivan, crossing the Delaware, on the night of the 25th of December, 1776, to make a surprise attack upon the Hessians at Trenton. The movement was eminently successful, Washington losing only nine men, two being frozen, capturing one thousand prisoners, with all their artillery and camp equipage, with which he successfully recrossed to the Pennsylvania side of the river.
