America’s History adds new photos to the website from Washington’s Winter Surprise

Bruce Venter

We’ve recently added pictures to our photo gallery from our Washington’s Winter Surprise: the Battle of Trenton in Depth tour last April. The photos were provided by Bob Kotchian of San Jose, CA. Bob and his wife, Deborah are veterans of the tours we’ve offered in conjunction with the Company of Military Historians annual conference. Bob has some great shots of our tour including replica Durham boats, the Old Barracks museum in Trenton, the Swan collection at the New Jersey Washington’s Crossing Visitors Center and the Trenton Battle Monument. There’s even a picture of the imminent Revolutionary War collector, Harry Kels Swan who joined us at the visitors center for a special discussion of his collection. You’ll see that the weather did not entirely cooperate in a photo taken from inside the bus, but that did not deter our hearty trampers. Our tour leader, Bill Welsch is prominently pictured holding forth in a stirring description of General Washington’s crossing of the Delaware on that hazardous Christmas night in 1776. Thanks, Bob, for providing some great photos of a memorable America’s History tour. [Read more…]
