 W2T will be on the air from December  26th to  December 30th 2017

 

 

To commemorate the historic Battles of Trenton and Princeton, the Delaware Valley Radio Association will operate special event stations on the days of those battles from its club station. 

The club station is located right along the route of march of Washington's troops from the river crossing at McKonkey's Ferry (now Washington Crossing, PA) to the battle site in Trenton.
     

 

                                                     Saving an Army to Create a Country

Defeated and chased all year by the British, the American army barely reached the safety of Pennsylvania on December 8, 1776.  Although the Americans removed anything that could be used to transport British troops across the Delaware River, their eventual defeat was almost inevitable, assuming any American troops remained after enlistments ended in January.  In a move studied to this day, General George Washington decided that a bold raid could change the course of the war and preserve his army.

The morning of December 26, 1776 was one of the pivotal events of the American Revolution.  After crossing the icy Delaware River in the dark, the army landed at Johnson’s Ferry.  At 4 am, the American troops began their five-mile march south to Trenton where they defeated the Hessian garrison in an unexpected dawn attack.
