Killing Our Enemies On Christmas Day Since 1776

"...You, the officers and men of this American Army must remember that you are free men fighting for the blessings of liberty. 

"...At this fateful hour the eyes of all our countrymen are now upon us. The eyes of the world are watching. Let us show them all that a freeman contending for Liberty is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth.

"...And when the hour is upon us fight for all that you are worth and all that you cherish and love. The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct that you show."

While the crossing of the Delaware River was on Christmas morning, there was no attack or conflict then. The battle of Trenton was on December 26. So, care to correct your post title?

1. Apparently some people lack a sense of humour.
2. Not only was the Battle on 31 Dec, vice 25 Dec, but the commander of the attacking force, Gen Richard Montgomery, was killed because he left out a few things in his plan.
