The Continental Army was defeated and running out of steam in December, 1776. With the British on their tail, Washington put the Delaware River between himself and the British. Thinking that the Continental Army was done, the British went into winter quarters. Goaded by militia raids in New Jersey, Washington chose a plan of action and raided the Hessian garrison in Trenton, New Jersey. Defeating the Hessian's at Trenton, Washington's victory convinced the British to abandon New Jersey. It was a great victory and rekindled the fighting spirit of the Continental Army.
