Pl…anned in partial secrecy, Washington led a column of Continental Army troops across the icy Delaware River in a logistically challenging and dangerous operation. Other planned crossings in support of the operation were either called off or ineffective, but this did not prevent Washington from surprising and defeating the troops of Johann Rall quartered in Trenton.

First, I think you are asking about George Washington's history, the various achievements in his life. To answer the question "Who was George Washington" (the pronoun "what" is usually used for things, while we use "who" when asking about people), this requires considering Washington's many achievem…ents, since they are all part of who he was. Most Americans remember Washington as the first president of the newly created United States. But at other times in his life, he was known as a great military commander, whose leadership helped the American colonists to defeat the British and win independence; he was a delegate to the Second Continental Congress; he was involved in creating the Constitutional Convention in 1787; and he was a contemporary of men like Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton, with whom he later helped to shape United States government policy. Thus President Washington was many things in his life, and he is generally remembered in a very positive way. ( Full Answer )

I believe MJames Monroe crossed the Delaware River earlier theGeorge Washington and at a different place entirely, Corryell'sFerry now New Hope PA. as per the web sitewww.CortyellsFerryMiltia.com ; The events during the winter of 1776 and the AmericanRevolution and Coryell's Ferry (now New Hope) ar…e astounding.Pre-eminent of those events was the vital mission carried out byLt. James Monroe and Captain William Washington (George's thirdcousin). General George Washington (our first president) asked forvolunteer's to cross the Delaware River at dusk. The crossing hadto be far enough up river so as not to alert the British forcesthat an attack was coming. This mission was to cut off allcommunications between the British stationed at Princeton and theHessian mercenaries billeted in the old French and Indian WarBarracks in Trenton, N. J. Lt. Monroe had to cross several hoursbefore the main body of of troops with General George Washington atMcKonkey's Ferry (now Washington Crossing, Pa.) so that he could bein a place to be effective. Just at dusk, Captain William Washington and Lt. James Monroe (ourfifth president) and 57 private soldiers crossed at Coryell's FerryPa into the Jersies. The troops went to their post atPrinceton-Pennington Rd. and successfully completed their mission.A farm that was nearby was occupied by a Doctor Riker. Doctor Rikersensed that the cold soldiers huddled in that intersection were ona valuable and secret mission. Once the good doctor ascertainedthey were indeed Continental Soldiers, he offered to come alongstating "that perhaps I may be able to help some poor fellow".Doctor Riker's words came true later the next morning when CaptainWashington and Lt. Monroe marched on to Trenton, joined up withGeneral Washington and as a special honor were charged to lead theattack on the Hessian Barracks. It was Doctor Riker's quick actionsthat stemmed the bleeding wounds of the heroes. The men werebrought back to the Coryell House (now Havana's) where theyrecovered and went on to greater glory.

What I did -- 1) Move to the left a bit left when the stalactite starts shaking. 2) Duck for the skull. 3) Jump way up TO THE RIGHT when the crocodile's head lowers into the water. 4) Land where the guide guy is. 5) When the stalactite starts shaking, move slightly to the left again. 6) Duck again.… 7) Jump again. 8) Be ready for the stalactite. It comes very quickly. 9) Duck right after the stalactite comes. 10) Again, jump. This worked for me, but you may develop your own plan. My advice -- PERSISTENCE, PERSISTENCE, PERSISTENCE! Even when you fall, even when it gets frustrating, you have to stay calm and keep going. If you get too frustrated, stop for a bit. You can go do something else, or even go to a different island and come back later. ( Full Answer )
