Add to my Calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
Don't miss the Dinner & Historical Reenactment on December 5th at the historic Wedgewood Inn featuring General George Washington! The General will share the harsh reality of the 10 crucial days & the riveting speech that revived the empowered his army at the battle of Trenton. the 10 crucial days are the most iconic and important moments of the American Revolution, moments that may have turned the tide in the War for Independence. Following the defeat at the Battle of Long Island, which led to the loss of New York City to the British, General George Washington became desperate for a victory to secure his army's morale, attract new recruits, and keep the fledgling independence initiative moving forward. Exhausted, and facing the prospect of mass desertion, Washington made a desperate gamble on Christmas night by crossing the Delaware River into British occupied colony of New Jersey. The next morning, Washington's army surprised a garrison of Hessian mercenaries at Trenton, and defeated the British reinforcements under Charles Lord Cornwallis just days later at Princeton. Thanks to Washington's leadership and determination, the army that nearly disintegrated after retreating from New York proved to Britain that it still had fight left. These ten days and the battles fought in them helped saved the American war effort against Britain.TICKET PRICE INCLUDES:- Delicious 3 course Dinner (Please advise of dietary restrictions)- 1 Special Colonial Drink- 1 Historical Reenactment/Show- Live Music This event is not to be missed!
