Eric,

Just found your post. You make a crucial point when you say, " .. you do remember how important rivers were for travel and communication ..." and I would simply add, command of the boats that were used on them. Washington's success in those days, both defensive and offensive, literally hinged on gaining an advantage at the river's edge. That crossing on Christmas Day evening was a marvel, especially considering getting Knox's artillery across.

As we were coming up on the 230th Anniversary of Washington's Christmas Crossing a few days ago, we noted a slightly earlier anniversary set in the context of that great historical moment -- the publication of Thomas Paine's The American Crisis I, and it's relation to the events at Trenton and Princeton.

It can be found here:
