Lambertville, April 2012

One of my periodic updates on Lambertville, on the banks of the Delaware. This is the old canal which rode along side the Delaware River, and in parts still remains. Down the road a piece is where Washington crossed over that famous Christmas night and kicked off a set of positive moves on his part. The Delaware is wide and was filled with ice that night. No small stream this river.

I am always amazed that most folks fail to realize how much of the Revolution was fought in our back yards. Unlike the Civil War, the remnants are few, but the consequences are important.
