Betsy's Battlefield 1776

Schneider, Tom


During five days over Christmas in 1776 Betsy Ross delays colonel Von Donop and 2,000 Hessian forces in Mount Holly, 20 miles south of Trenton, while Washington executed a surprise post-Christmas attack.

In the first successful American undercover operation performed by a woman, with the fate of the nation in the balance, Betsy engages the colonel and prevents him from thwarting Washington's offensive.
