  • 49. What Is Wrong With This Picture?
    George Washington Crossing The Delaware, Emanuel Leutze 1851
  • 50. What Is Wrong With This Picture?
    The flag shown was not created until June of 1777. The Grand Union flag would have been carried at the time.
    George Washington Crossing The Delaware, Emanuel Leutze 1851
  • 51. Grand Union Flag
    13 Original States
  • 52. What Is Wrong With This Picture?
    The boat was the wrong size and model. The actual boats used had higher sides and were much bigger.
    George Washington Crossing The Delaware, Emanuel Leutze 1851
  • 53. What Is Wrong With This Picture?
    Washington is shown standing heroically in the front of the boat. He probably would have been sitting to keep from falling into the water.
    George Washington Crossing The Delaware, Emanuel Leutze 1851
  • 54. What Is Wrong With This Picture?
    While the Delaware did freeze over in the winter, it was too early to see much ice in the river, let alone ice the size shown.
    George Washington Crossing The Delaware, Emanuel Leutze 1851
  • 55. What Is Wrong With This Picture?
    While the sun is shown rising in the distance, the crossing actually took place in the middle of the night.

    Have it translated because
    he was busy playing cards!

  • 67. 1.     An account from a Hessian soldier:
    The men looked
    haggard and pallid and were poorly dressed.
    Indeed, very many stood quite proudly under arms without
    shoes and stockings. What army could be maintained in
    this manner? None, certainly, for the whole army would
    gradually run away. This, too, is a part of that
    “ Liberty and Independence” for which these poor fellows
    had to have their arms and legs smashed. But to what cannot
    enthusiasm lead a people!
    What do you believe to be the meaning of this
    observation? How do you think this soldier feels
    about the men to which he refers in this statement? Explain
