Washington Crossing Christmas Day 2017

Boats ferried 2,400 soldiers, 200 horses and 18 cannons across the river from what is now Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania, to Titusville, New Jersey, during the original crossing in 1776. The crossing is reenacted every year, except in 2017 when high wind's derailed the annual event.
