It's very interesting to see boat like the original in a reenactment.

Wonderful shot of a historical event. The beautiful light is making a fantastic spring mood.

Re-enactments are great.... this looks so real. It has a washed out look to it and it works nicely for that time period. Wonderful detail too.... excellent! ♥

Looks like a good re-enactment, but I guess Wsahington had a few more men at his disposal. Did you know that George Washington's ancestral family home is just a few miles away from here?

15 Mar 2015 7:17pm

@Curly: I did not realize that, Curly. His men crossed during the night and darkness, so the reenactment is not really true to history. But it is enjoyed by hundreds each year

kiwisa from North Shore, New Zealand

The processing is great for this re-enactment.

Irene from San Francisco, United States

Good catch. I also like how you froze the water action from the paddles.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

With a crop, you could have eliminated the tourists and their cars! Otherwise nice shot.

I love these reenactments ... not many spectators on the far shore, but this may not be the main vantage point.

The main viewing points are the bridge that spans the Delaware and the NJ side of the river. WHat you see is the PA side.

Reconstitution historique que vient renforcer le choix du traitement, une jolie réussite !
