The Battle of Trenton

Summary

There’s no reason we should have crushed it at the Battle of Trenton.

But we totally did!

The above podcast discusses the Battle of Trenton, a significant battle of the Revolutionary War.

At the time of the battle (December 26, 1776), the Americans desperately needed a win. Morale was low, and there was a very real chance the bulk of George Washington’s army would leave him at the turn of the new year.

Washington needed something convincing to keep a sizeable portion of his troops intact.

I won’t spoil too much of the podcast for you, but this is where we get Washington’s famous Crossing of the Delaware, forever immortalized in the photo below:

Give the podcast a listen – never hurts to pick up a quick history lesson!
