From the book, When Washington Crossed the Delaware, by Lynne Cheney, Illustrated by Peter M. Fiore
Downstream, two of Washington’s commanders also struggled to get men and guns across the river. In the end neither General James Ewing nor Colonel John Cadwalader could get through the ice on the Delaware. They had to give up on the idea of fighting at Trenton.

It was November 1776, a time of trouble for our young country. We were fighting for our independence from Britain, and the war was not going well. The British had defeated General George Washington and his men on Long Island, had driven them out of New York, and were pursuing them across New Jersey.
“This night we lay amongst the leaves without tents or blankets.”
ENOCH ANDERSON, Captain, Haslet’s Delaware Regiment
