The Battle of Trenton.

       The British soldiers were losing effort to fight. And the battle of trenton was going to be a big battle. They knew they were going to need help, the british aliened with Hessian Mercenaries, 1,400 of them.

The British were unprepared and too exhausted for fighting, even though they had warning of the attack. The american army came by a river to maintain the element of surprise. The men divided up firing cannons guns fatally wounding Johann Rall from under his horse. He was trying to rally up the soldiers. He also failed to do so.

Washington knew that British reinforcements were coming and they would be far too powerful to defeat. The army headed the river to retreat back.

Meanwhile 8,000 British men headed down from Prinston.
