A story that every child should know!
on November 5, 2004
Lynne Cheney's story of George Washington and his troops crossing the Delaware River is a wonderful presentation of how liberty wove our country's fabric during the Revolutionary War. For children, this story brings to life the courage demonstrated by Washington and his troops, and the honor they earned by taking action in pursuit of liberty. It will not only inspire young patriots, but it will also teach them what was sacrificed to secure the life, liberty and happiness we now celebrate as Americans. Every school in America should share Cheney's wintertime story with its students, for every young child should know what a great struggle Washington and his troops endured and overcame, and how the troops stepped forward with trust in Washington's leadership and with unwavering patriotism to claim victory under the bright light of liberty.
