General George Washington's decision to cross the icy Delaware River on Christmas night in 1776 gave the Continental Army its first major military win during the American Revolutionary War. Months after the American colonists declared their independence from Great Britain, repeated defeats, disease, and harsh weather leave officers and soldiers with low morale. Winning independence was not a given. But Washington's surprise attack on Hessian soldiers gave the Army and colonists new inspiration.
