Join LBG Ralph Siegel and Revolutionary War living historian and guide Kenneth Gavin for George Washington & The Battle of Trenton this Saturday, April 20th at 2 p.m. at the Adams County Historical Society (625 Biglerville Road, Gettysburg).

For 10 days in the winter of 1776, the Trenton and Bucks County area became the most important ground on earth as American Continental forces struggled to keep the War for Independence alive. “Washington’s Crossing” may be globally famous, partly because of the famous painting, but the actual difficulties and objectives of that campaign are commonly overlooked.

The dramatic Battle of Trenton will unfold as a lively, moving-map slideshow to present the officers and events of General Washington’s Ten Crucial Days Campaign, from the storied crossing of the Delaware on Christmas in 1776 to the pivotal street fight against the German regiments.

To mark the recognition of Patriots’ Day (celebrated on the third Monday in April), this Saturday’s presentation will include an expert demonstration of period uniform and weaponry.

Tickets are free for ACHS members and $10/general admission. Reserve your tickets here.
