The Trenton Battle Monument

Bryant Uribe

The monument depicts the legendary George Washington on top a pedestal that reaches higher than anything in the immediate area. It represents freedom, bravery, determination, independence, and the origins of the United States.

What struck me was the utter importance of the Battle of Trenton. I learned more in-depth information on the Battle of Trenton such as the fact that Washington’s army was on the downfall up to the point of the battle.
