Merry Christmas, Sassenachs!

Check out this tremendous read about George Washington crossing the Delaware on Christmas and surprising the Hessians who had celebrated a bit the night before and had no clue what was upon them. These men crossed a river full of ice in small boats at night....and then marched 9 miles - on foot - in a driving defeat the Hessians in Trenton. Absolutely humbling. I will now shut up about the snowstorm that's headed our way here at the New Jersey shore today.

I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas (even if you don't celebrate - I'm still sending you gobs of happy Christmas spirit!) from My Outlander Purgatory. The best of wishes from our family to yours!


  1. That was cool. I can't wait to see what parts Jamie, Lord John, Ian, and William - and the ladies! - play in the Revolution in the next book.

    Merry Christmas!!!

  2. Merry Christmas Carol, Tracey, and Sassenachs near and far!

  3. I know Adventures! Sometimes I read things like this and my brain starts moving a mile a minute, inventing prospects for Book 8!

    Thanks Sirena - hope you're enjoying a wonderful holiday season! :)
