Washington Crosses the Rhine
Added: May 25 2019
Almost all of you have seen the stirring picture of Washington crossing the Delaware, painted by Emanuel Leutze. It now hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of New York, although for a time it was put down in the cellar in disgrace! For in this picture, Washington is not crossing the Delaware, as he did on that freezing Christmas night of 1776, Washington is really crossing the Rhine...
