Late on the night of Christmas Day, 1776, Washington’s army crossed the Delaware and went on to attack Trenton, New Jersey. Alexander Hamilton's artillery company played a crucial role in capturing the Hessian garrison of Trenton. But who were these strange German soldiers who fought with the British? 

Join the Museum of the American Revolution to meet costumed living history interpreters portraying Hessians and visit a Museum educator in the galleries that highlight objects and stories from these winter battles.
