I will check it out. Thank you.
We are blessed to live in such a historically significant area related to the Revolutionary War. I love reading about the battles and have made a vow to visit every battlefield. http://www.theamericanrevolution.org/battles.aspx#
I live where the air is teeming with the smell of fresh chocolate. :_)

On the Eve of the Greatest Battle ,Time to remember… the True Patriots
From the History Channel Website
December 25, 1776
Patriot General George Washington crosses the Delaware River with 5,400 troops, hoping to surprise a Hessian force celebrating Christmas at their winter quarters in Trenton, New Jersey. The unconventional attack came after several months of substantial defeats for Washington’s Continental Army that had resulted in the loss of New York City and other strategic points in the region.
At about 11 p.m. on Christmas, Washington’s army commenced its crossing of the half-frozen river at three locations. The 2,400 soldiers led by Washington successfully braved the icy and freezing river and reached the New Jersey side of the Delaware just before dawn. The other two divisions, made up of some 3,000 men and crucial artillery, failed to make the appointed meeting place.
Washington’s men quickly overwhelmed the Germans’ defenses, and by 9:30 a.m. the town was surrounded. Although several hundred Hessians escaped, nearly 1,000 were captured at the cost of only four American lives. News of Washington’s 1st victory raised the spirits of the American Patriots and Colonists, who previously feared that the Continental Army was incapable of victory.
The rest, as they say is “History”
Thank God for that.
PA PATRIOT - great post! You should check out the DVD "The Crossing." It's all about leading up to the battle of Trenton. You'd like it.
( By the way - I live in southern PA. Howdy neighbor, and Merry Christmas! )
Timely post Just cut & pasted it to send to my grandson. Had a discussion with him a few weeks ago to prove his teacher is wrong and should not be teaching American History. Your post puts the Cherry On the Cake!

I watch the The 5 to hear Gutfeld’s libertarian stance annihilate Beckels fat a$$ (Civil RIghts Advocate) Gutfeld has some incredible observations and is credible, What I think not credible is Beckels loss of control to drop the f and GD bombs (2 in one week) I believe this is a ploy to gain ratings. Bob dropped a few bombs in the past, but nothing like this. Is the handwriting on the wall for The Five.Roger says “goodbye”

17 Million dollars spent on advertising this debacle per month.
68 Million just this year?
6 million subscribers?
Someone is getting really fat ass rich off of this government cluster.
time to stop the insanity
I don't think it's going to happen. That football has a good bounce, and both sides are getting good mileage out of kicking it around. The RepubicRats will use it to plug the holes in their leaky ship, and the DemonicRats will use it to bribe The Stupid to the polls...

The liberal press just does not get it.

DEMONIZE the opposition
Just shut them up and tie their hands behind their backs.
This type of action leads to unintended consequences.
I hope the truckers and the vets begin a session in civil disobedience that we can act as reserves and come in and keep the mission going .
The timing is perfect

Time to review a long forgotten quote from a person who could lead.
” And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.
My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.
Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.
