Happy 280th Birthday, George Washington!

In honor of George Washington’s birthday, I made this slideshow from photos I took at the 2009 and 2011 annual  reenactments of George Washington and his troops crossing the Delaware River on the Christmas Day 1776 sneak attack against the Hessians, called the Battle of Trenton. Happy Birthday, George, and thanks for all you’ve done for your country!

  1. Loved the slideshow Karen! The pictures really give you a good feeling of what it must have been like ! loved the choice of music also.

    • Thank you, Linda! Photographing the reenactment is very special to me, mostly because one of the reenactors – the person who’s done it the longest (44 years!) is near and dear to my heart, and is truly a good soul. His name is Jack and he’s the one wearing the off-white long cape and headband, at the helm of one of the boats, and appears more than anyone else in my slideshow. He’s also the person in the portrait in the last frame. I’m glad you liked it! (I forgot to mention in my description that the music is called Crusade, author unknown.) Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! 🙂
