Tomorrow is Christmas. I hope you have a merry one, but for those who do not, I offer you a ray of hope.
We are a nation born from a pivotal battle fought on Christmas — the Battle of Trenton (25-26 December 1776).
I believe the Battle of Trenton (there were actually two) was the pivotal battle of the American Revolution.
If our attack had been repulsed, we would not exist.
