Battle of Trenton

December 18, 1776
Washington to his cousin,

"I think the game is nearly up...."

December 23, 1776

These are the times that try men's souls.  The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country, but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and women.

Thomas Paine, The Crisis.
