In honor of the 225th Anniversary of the Continental Army's crossing of the Delaware River,
The Virtual Theatre of History in Darkness presents...
          
Two colonial sailors pole a boat across the Delaware River as they argue the finer points of revolutionary warfare and politics with an Irish cannoneer. It's Christmas night, 1776. The bitter rain has turned to driving snow. The river is choked with ice cakes the sizeof livestock. And on the other side are four hundred Hessians to be fought in the morning. Will they be asleep, drunk from their revels, like the Virginian General hopes? Or will they be waiting for the rag-tag rebel army with their own Christmas surprise?
