Military Photo: Run for the Guns


This scene of the Battle of Trenton on the morning of December 26, 1776 depicts Continental soldiers overrunning the Hessian artillery position following a short duel with American artillery. Lieutenant James Monroe, a future president of the United States, was badly wounded during this part of the battle. Firing from behind fences and the insides of buildings the Continentals quickly forced the Hessian garrison to surrender. (From: Soldiers of the American Revolution).
