The two most important battles in the American Revolution were the battle of Trenton, and the battle at Yorktown. The battle of Trenton took place in Trenton New Jersey on December 25, 1776. It was a cold winters night many American troops had very little to wear, no shoes and were thinking this was the end. “American troops had as little as eighteen guns, and the Hessians had only six light guns. Hessian commander Colonel Rahl had been ordered by commanders that Washington and his troops were heading closer to meet up with the British and Hessians and would soon be coming over the hill. Colonel Rahl had been ordered to construct defence works around the town. He ignored this command.” Washington and his troops fled and ran the British out.
