Synopsis:

With the warm-hearted patriotism and passion he brought to his beautiful volume Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address Illustrated, Jack E. Levin now illuminates a profound turning point of the American Revolution: the decisive Battle of Trenton and its prelude—General George Washington leading his broken and ailing troops in a fleet of small wooden boats across the ice-encased Delaware River.

While one iconic 19th-century painting made the crossing a familiar image, the significance of the against-all-odds victory put into motion on Christmas night, 1776, cannot be told enough. Jack Levin brings to light several vital perspectives, and draws his text from General Washington’s letter to the Continental Congress to describe the amazing account of the unlikely defeat of the Hessian army at Trenton.

As a father, Jack Levin inspired his sons— including Mark R. Levin, the national talk-radio host and #1 bestselling author, and Douglas and Robert—with his love for America. Around the family table, he would share the facts and events of the nation’s founding, spark lively debates, and pass along his extensive knowledge and his deep and abiding patriotism. Featuring Revolution-era artwork, portraiture, and maps, George Washington: The Crossing imparts the same vivid, intimate telling, that of a father to his sons—the kind of history lesson that lives in the heart forever.

Synopsis:

From the author of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address comes a beautifully designed account of George Washington’s historic crossing of the Delaware River and the decisive Battle of Trenton—with a foreword by his son, #1 New York Times bestselling author Mark R. Levin.

Jack E. Levin, author of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, presents a beautifully designed and produced micro-history of George Washington’s daring forge of the Delaware River and the triumphant Battle of Trenton during the Revolutionary War. Accompanied by historic paintings, illustrations and maps from the era, George Washington: The Crossing is a dramatic and fascinating rendering of an honored American story.

In addition, #1 New York Times bestselling author Mark Levin and the author’s son, provides a preface about the importance of the event and its lasting impact on history.
