THE AMERICAN CHRISTMAS MIRACLE

As we have Christmas lets remember a Christmas night that will forever be etched in the archives of history.

In the dead of winter the Continental army, many of them wounded, sick and demoralized after recent loses to the British, they had no proper winter clothing, most of their shoes were broken and some had no shoes.

General Washington knew that the mission he was planning was going to be a gamble. But this would be the last chance to have freedom and be out from under the tyrannical rule of the British king. General Washington prayed for God’s guidance and protection.

The weather on Christmas 1776 at Valley Forge was getting worse by the hour there was blinding sleet and a snowstorm. As 11 PM came, the troops started climbing aboard the boats that were 66 ft. long. They began crossing the Delaware river rowing and poling the boats through a swollen swift moving river full of big sheets of ice. They completed the crossing at 4:00AM, two hours behind schedule. Temperatures had plummeted and two men froze to death. Now they had an 8 mile march to Trenton, many of them had bloody frostbitten feet. Finally at 8:00 AM, the American army was spotted just outside Trenton by a Hessian Lieutenant. But by the time he was able to sound an alarm it was too late and all hell broke loose. The surprise overwhelmed the Hessians who were still in their underwear and had hangovers from too much Christmas celebrating.

Hessians were German troops that the British had paid to join them in fighting the Americans. The Hessians were the most fierce fighting force on the face of the earth.

The fighting lasted for about an hour. By the time the Hessians had been defeated, there had been four Americans killed and several wounded. Forty Hessians lay dead in the snow and 900 prisoners were taken back to Valley Forge and held in a prison camp. The Hessians had never even suspected an attack because the weather was so bad and the Continental army was so poorly outfitted for the conditions. A march to Trenton seemed impossible.

On December 26, 1776 America’s destiny was decided.

You just have to wonder if those patriots could see America today, they would wonder why people are so willing to give up their freedom and liberty. That the brave men gave all for the future of America to preserve the God given rights that the human spirit longs for.

Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of Christ, Gods greatest greatest gift to humanity and a time to remember the sacrifices that were made against unsurmountable odds to gain freedom. But God blessed that righteous cause and America was born.
