Between December 25, 1776 and January 3, 1777, George Washington faced a number of critical decisions and the actions he formulated would play a major role in either bringing the American Revolution to a crushing defeat or reviving hopes for its eventual success. This illustrated talk examines those decisions to understand how the battles at Trenton and Princeton reversed the despair during the “times that tried men’s souls” on the American side and the confidence in imminent victory on the British side.

Larry Kidder is a retired history teacher who has been involved as a volunteer historian and public speaker for many years with several New Jersey historic sites and historical societies. He is a board member of the Princeton Battlefield Society currently assisting with the development of the updated museum in the Thomas Clarke House on the Princeton battlefield. He is the author of three books on the Revolution as it affected New Jersey. His fourth book on the Revolution focuses on the town of Princeton during the ten years 1774-1783 and is scheduled for release in November. He also authored the chapter on the Ten Crucial Days in the recently released Ten Crucial Campaigns of the American Revolution edited by Edward Lengel. Larry also edits and contributes to the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area project entitled Meet Your Revolutionary Neighbors. Register here on website.
