These are the words that General Washington had read to his men a few days before one of the most daring and perhaps most important moments in U.S. history — the crossing of the Delaware River. George Washington and a rag-tag group of approximately 2,400 soldiers charged across the Delaware to launch a surprise attack on roughly 1,400 British-backed Hessian mercenaries near Trenton, New Jersey.
Washington’s plan was to attack Christmas night into the following morning when the Hessians would least expect it, and right away the plan was nearly foiled by an unidentified British spy in Washington’s ranks and a pair of Continental Army deserters.
Luckily, the Hessians brushed off the warnings due to several false alarms regarding previous surprise attacks and the fact that someone would have to be insane to try to cross the river in those freezing conditions. Turns out the Continental forces were just crazy enough to pull off the attack, taking the day with no fatalities on the Continental side and securing the surrender of the Hessian forces.
And the rest is, as they say, history. As a veteran-founded company, we are huge fans of our military lore and history, especially legendary tales of our Founding Fathers. We can also guarantee that waking up to a warm mug of this coffee is a helluva lot better than waking up to an army of freezing cold angry Continental soldiers.
