Dec. 25-26, 1776. Henry Knox writes his wife about crossing the Delaware River under George Washington’s orders. “Accordingly a part of the army, consisting of about 2,500 or 3,000 passed the river on Christmas night, with almost infinite difficulty, with 18 field-pieces. The floating ice in the river made the labor almost incredible . . . However, perseverance accomplished what at first seemed impossible . . . We entered the town with them pell-mell.”
