#1 New York Times BestsellerWith the warm-hearted patriotism and passion he brought to his beautiful volume Abraham Lincolnâ€™s Gettysburg Address Illustrated, Jack E. Levin now illuminates a profound turning point of the American Revolution: the decisive Battle of Trenton and its preludeâ€”General George Washington leading his broken and ailing troops in a fleet of small wooden boats across the ice-encased Delaware River. While one iconic 19th-century painting made the crossing a familiar image, the significance of the against-all-odds victory put into motion on Christmas night, 1776, cannot be told enough. Jack Levin brings to light several vital perspectives, and draws his text from General Washingtonâ€™s letter to the Continental Congress to describe the amazing account of the unlikely defeat of the Hessian army at Trenton. As a father, Jack Levin inspired his sonsâ€”including Mark R. Levin, the national talk-radio host and #1 bestselling author, and Douglas and Robertâ€”with his love for America. Around the family table, he would share the facts and events of the nationâ€™s founding, spark lively debates, and pass along his extensive knowledge and his deep and abiding patriotism. Featuring Revolution-era artwork, portraiture, and maps, George Washington: The Crossing imparts the same vivid, intimate telling, that of a father to his sonsâ€”the kind of history lesson that lives in the heart forever.
