The victory at Trenton, followed by that at Princeton, restored the morale of the Americans, bore the capture of some 918 Hessian's at Trenton and about 400 British at Princeton and make the British to give up further military action for that year. Last but not least, following those victories, the Congress returned to Philadelphia from Baltimore.

Princeton and Trenton are both somewhat major cities in central New Jersey. Trenton is the capital of NJ and is home to the Trenton Thunder AA baseball team. Princeton is a 30-min. car ride away, featuring Princeton University and Drumthwacket, the governor's mansion. Both were home to Revolutionary War battles in which the US won. I highly recommend visiting Princeton for one reason or another.

The colonists were planning to attack Trenton on early morning the day after Christmas in hopes that the hessians at Trenton would not be sober to fight however only 1/3 of the colonists army made it to Trenton across the Delaware to fight the hessians but in the end the colonists suprise attack caught the Hessians way off guard and catipulted the colonists to victory in that battle.
