                                  George Washington’s Ten Crucial Days

    Between December 25, 1776 and January 3, 1777, George Washington was faced with a number of critical decisions and the actions he formulated would play a major role in either bringing the American Revolution to a crushing defeat or reviving the hopes for its eventual success. This talk examines those decisions to understand how the battles of Trenton and Princeton prevented an early end to the war for independence and reversed the feelings of despair during the “times that tried men’s souls” on the American side and the feelings of confidence on the British side. Historian Larry Kidder is a retired high school history teacher and a thirty year volunteer historical interpreter for the Howell Living History Farm in Hopewell. He has written three books on the American Revolution in the Trenton/Princeton area including, A People Harassed and Exhausted about the First Hunterdon County militia regiment, Crossroads of the Revolution: Trenton, 1774-1783, and most recently, Ten Crucial Days: Washington’s Vision for Victory Unfolds.
