1. The German artist was Emanuel Leutze-the painting was done in Germany.

2. The date of the painting is on or about 1851–not in the 1775 time period.

ERRORS  in the painting & interesting information:

  • Washington probably would not be standing up in a raging snow storm (in a small boat).
  • The flag shown in the painting was not used until at least six months after the Battle of Trenton.
  • Horses would not be standing up in a small boat–larger boats were used to transport the horses.
  • The models for the painting were Germans not Americans.
  • The Rhine River was used NOT the Delaware for the painting.
  • YOUR COMMENTS about the painting…………………………………………………
