Annual Christmas Day re-enactment remembers a turning point in War for Independence
Thousands gather on the banks of the Delaware River to watch the reenactment of George Washington’s 1776 Christmas Day river crossing to attack the Hessians near Trenton in a turning point of the War for Independence.
Several hundred reenactors in Continental military dress will listen to an inspiring speech by Gen. Washington on the Pennsylvania side and then row across the river to the Titusville area in replica Durham boats.
The free event happens at 1 p.m. Christmas Day. Washington’s Crossing Historic Park is located at the intersection of routes 32 and 532.
