This year I finally made it to the annual re-enactment of Washington’s Crossing. Or at least the rehearsal, which took place on December 11. There is also a Christmas crossing. Unfortunately, conditions were too dangerous on the 11th for the boats to cross,  but it was still great to wander around the park in Washington’s footsteps.

The highlight of the day occurred when Glover’s Regiment, standing on the Pennsylvania side of the river, fired five volleys across the Delaware, and some wag in the crowd cried out, “Take that, New Jersey!”

The spirit of the Revolution lives on…
