Washington Crosses the Delaware River: The 2020 Reenactment

On December 25, 1776, General George Washington and more than 2,000 troops crossed the Delaware River – at night, amid a Nor’easter. After crossing to New Jersey, they marched to Trenton and were victorious over the Hessian troops stationed there.
Each year, Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA) hosts a reenactment of Washington’s crossing. We hope you enjoy this cinematic presentation of the 68th annual crossing reenactment, which could not be held in the traditional, in-person manner due to crowd-size restrictions.
The video, filmed in December 2020 here in Washington Crossing Historic Park, provides a close-up view of the crossing reenactment: a beloved community tradition that will continue for years to come.
