More accurate view of Washington crossing debuts…
NEW YORK – One of America’s most famous images, a painting of George Washington crossing the Delaware River, got much of the story wrong: The American commander wouldn’t have stood triumphantly on a rowboat in daylight, but on a ferry bracing himself against a fierce snowstorm on Christmas night. That’s the historic scene depicted in a new painting that goes on display this week at the New-York Historical Society museum in Manhattan. “No one in his right mind would have stood up in a rowboat in that weather,” artist Mort Kunstler said. “It would have capsized.” LINK
Personally I think the only way you cross the Delaware on the way to ambush your enemies on Christmas Eve is EXACTLY the way the original painting depicts Washington.
