This nonfiction narrative is an account of two battles of the Revolutionary War, Trenton and Princeton. American soldiers faced many difficulties during these battles, including lack of supplies and harsh weather conditions, but under the leadership of General George Washington, they persevered and won, and American victories at these battles gave the Americans hope that they could win the rest of the war.
