Directed by Robert Harmon, this historical film dramatizes General George Washington's (1732–99) perilous gamble of crossing the Delaware River and attacking the Hessian forces at Trenton in 1776. His Continental Army was on the brink of utter defeat. Low on men, cannons and supplies, Washington decided to risk everything on one last desperately daring attack on the town of Trenton in New Jersey, where over 1,000 of the feared Hessian mercenaries that fought for the British army were garrisoned. However, to do that, the army must cross the Delaware to a seemingly hopeless battle.
