For over 60 years, Washington Crossing Historic Park has recreated the daring Christmas night river crossing of 1776, leading to the victories of the 10 Crucial Days.  Several hundred reenactors in Continental military dress listen to an inspiring speech by General Washington and cross the river in replica Durham boats.

Sadly, this event had to be cancelled to protect the public and the participants from the pandemic. Check out the video on their webpage and look for us next year.

My goal is to bring history alive through interactive portrayal of ordinary American life in the late 18th Century (1750—1799) My persona are: Journeyman Brewer; Cordwainer (leather tradesman but not cobbler), Statesman and Orator; Chandler (candle and soap maker); Gentleman Scientist; and, Soldier in either the British Regular Army, the Centennial Army, or one of the various Militia. Let me help you experience history 1st hand!
