Washington re-crosses the Delaware River on Christmas Day. His troops defeat the sleeping Hessians at Trenton (12/26/76). Washington lights campfires to make it look like his men are bunking down for the night, then marches to Princeton and another victory (1/2/77). The country celebrates; morale is restored. James and Sarah are concerned when a British spy named John Honeyman is captured. James discovers Honeyman is really spying for Washington.
