Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze, 1851
The year is 1851. The air is chilly, and there is an ominous shadow surrounding America. George Washington is getting his men ready with powerful words and oratorical encouragement. “We are Americans! The British are below our high levels of patriotism and courage. We are the noble men that will bring the liberty that we deserve!” exclaims George Washington. His men holler back in excitement and agreement.
They get into their massive, well-constructed boats filled with war artillery. They straighten their uniforms and prepare to get into action. They push off the shore of the River that causes a gush of wind. They sail gloriously across the Delaware River with George Washington leading valiantly. The harsh weather conditions biting at their skin were no match against their determination and perseverance. They looked to their beloved American Flag, which gave them never ending hope.
After hours of endless sailing, they realize they have successfully crossed the glorious Delaware River. Every soldier is filled with blooming pride. The battle has just begun.
