American Revoultion

The battle lasted about an hour and there were only five patriot causalities. In contrast, Washington killed some thirty of the enemy and took over nine hundred prisoners (Lender, 30). In addition, thousands of muskets, wagons, forty horses, handful of excellent field guns, and instruments were captured (Bill, 32).

The following morning, Washington mauled several British regiments at Princeton, and only exhaustion stopped his men from going to New Brunswick and capturing British supplies. However, on January seventh, Washington led his troops to the safety of winter quarters at Morristown. "Without question, Washington's "Christmas CampaignaE must stand as one of the stellar feats of America arms. His victories had done nothing less that save the RevolutionaE (Lender, 30).

In January of 1777, Washington stayed in Morristown for the winter. Tactically, the Morristown position was equally advantageous. A blockade and entrenchment's fortified an advance post for other supporting divisions. In addition, Morristown was behind the Appalachian Mountains that had steep slopes and deep ravines for excellent defensive positions for the front and flanks (Bill, 46).
