The Crossing’s courageous plan is launched on Christmas Day, 1776

The story opens with the history of Emanuel Leutze’s famous painting of “Washington’s Crossing” and the miraculous retreat Washington had to execute from Long Island, across Manhattan, and nearly half the length of New Jersey. Along the way, Washington loses almost 2/3 of his army to KIA’s, desertion, capture and failure to re-enlist. It is only by “Providence” that he crosses the 6th river in his retreat just as Lord Cornwallis is about to capture him. The story of the events that inspired “The Crossing” are exciting and new to most listeners, plus Church reveals the identity of the famous “widow that saved the Revolution” the Widow of Mount Holly. The Widow detained the Hessian, Count Donop and prevented him from being in his proper position on Christmas Day, a feat that spared Washington from certain defeat at Trenton.
