American troops crossing the Delaware River on Christmas night, 1776 - engraving by Emanuel Leutze, in the The American Revolution: A Picture Sourcebook. New York:  Dover Publication, Inc.
American troops crossing the Delaware River on Christmas night, 1776. The American Revolution: A Picture Sourcebook notes that the famous Leutze painting had a number of things wrong: the boat was the wrong size and shape, the flag was not in use yet, and that Washington probably didn't stand up like that. This is an engraving of that painting.
