“It may be doubted whether so small a number of men ever employed so short a space of time with greater and more last effects upon the history of the world.”

British Historian George Trevelyan

On Christmas Day 1776, General George Washington led a rag-tag group of freezing, half-starved American soldiers on a daring night crossing of the Delaware River to attack a regiment of Hessians soldiers at Trenton, N.J.  Using the element of surprise and speed, it was an audacious plan that had dire consequences; if it failed the American Revolution would likely be over.

Washington’s attack at Trenton led to subsequent battles over the British within 10 brief days. The victories turned the tide of the war in favor of the Americans and forever changed the face of world history.

This premier experience enables you and your team to explore the courageous leadership decisions made by Washington, as well as other American, Hessian and British leaders.
