Trenton Battle Monument Plaque

2010-Crossroads-Image-Library-070-850x1280-e1357708252335

A plaque at the foot of the Trenton Battle Monument attests to the dismay in London when Lord George Germain, the colonial secretary overseeing England’s war in America, learned that Washington’s supposedly defeated army rebounded and trounced a crack contingent of Hessian mercernaries. This plaque attests to the anguish felt by the British as they came to terms with the American will to fight for independence and freedom.
