MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR
May you all stay safe and enjoy the Festive season
I noticed the following -;
"At the end of 1776, the Revolutionary War looked like it might be lost for colonial forces.
A series of defeats by the British had depleted morale, and many soldiers had deserted the Continental Army.
Desperate to strike a decisive victory, on Christmas Day General George Washington led 2,400 troops on a daring nighttime crossing of the icy Delaware River"
"& so in honor of such an historic event -- of both then & now -;
We, of Patriot stock, stand United on this eve
In darkness we gather upon the lonely bank
Star light & moon to let us see
Our victory awaits as in God we thank.
Stark is the call from sentry post
As silence is the key that we must embrace
Each ones own in deliberate thought
Upon this Christmas as we make silent haste.
Dip the oar, pull forward clean
Travel forth in history upon this night
To clear the land of Tyranny's scene
Our Countrys fate awaits as we engage the Fight.
