As part of the town’s Christmas Walk festivities, Glover’s Marblehead Regiment reenacted the turning point of the American Revolutionary War. On Christmas night, 1776, a surprise attack was carried out on the Hessian Garrison, German troops hired by the British to help fight during the war, at Trenton, New Jersey.

The event featured a reenactment of Washington’s Crossing of the Delaware, where Gen. John Glover’s sailor-soldiers rowed Gen. George Washington, an army of 2,400 men, cannon and their horses across the fast-flowing, ice-packed Delaware River on Christmas night, 1776, in advance of the Battle of Trenton, which was a decisive victory for the Washington’s troops.
