Victory or Death: George Washington and the Ten Crucial Days | July 25 - Reception 5:00 p.m. Speaker 6:00 p.m.

National Park Service historian Mark Maloy takes us to the tense days of December 1776, where George Washington and the Continental 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 cross the ice-choked river and attack the Hessian garrison at Trenton, New Jersey the day after Christmas. Washington follows up this stunning victory with successful actions at Assunpink Creek and Princeton to turn the tables and breathe new life into the dying cause for American liberty.
