Daily blog: It’s December 25, 1776, and you’re standing on the banks of the Delaware River with 2,399 other badasses getting ready to cross its frozen waters in one night, directly into a severe winter storm of sleet and snow.
As you row, your boat has to combat ice jams, and to make matters worse, the extreme darkness caused by the storm is making it hard to see the opposite shore.
Once across, you reassemble and march ten miles to Trenton and attack the Hessian garrison right before dawn, where you secure the Continental Army’s first major military victory.
Had you failed, we would have no freedom.
I wish you here with us this Christmas day, 2020, for we are under attack, and most of America is sleeping, like the Hessians on a cold winter’s morning.
