THE  HISTORICAL EVENT

The song and famous painting depict George Washington and his troops  crossing of the Delaware River during the American Revolutionary War, on Christmas Night 1776.

They crossed the Delaware River late at night from their camp at McConkey’s Ferry, PA then marched miles down the New Jersey side of the River to meet the enemy (Hessian  troops who were fighting on behalf of the British) stationed  at Trenton, NJ.
