At the start of the Revolutionary War, Washington was the target of an assassination plot. And it ended with the largest public execution in North American history at the time. https://wapo.st/2VbQydz

Although no Americans were killed during the crossing, some succumbed to exposure, disease or previous injuries. James Moore, an artillery captain from Hamilton’s New York company of artillery, is the only veteran here whose identity is known.

This flower is such a deep purple that it almost looks black! It's called a Nigra Hollyhock, and you'll find it growing in the ornamental beds at the Thompson-Neely House and Farmstead. Everything growing around it would have been planted here in #BucksCounty in the 18th century!

Every day, the Friends of Washington Crossing Park work to educate the public about the historic events that happened here using a technique called historical interpretation. It's similar, but not identical, to reenacting.

When Washington was elected president, he carefully considered what he would wear to his inauguration. Ultimately, he decided on a brown broadcloth three-piece suit made from fabric woven at the Hartford Woolen Manufactory in Connecticut.

From the parking area at the Thompson-Neely House, it’s a short walk across the Delaware Canal to the memorial cemetery where an unknown number of Continental soldiers who died during the December 1776 encampment in Bucks County are buried.

From the very beginning, Pennsylvania was an agricultural leader in the colonies. By the 1750s, southeastern Pennsylvania was exceptionally prosperous as a farming area thanks to wheat, corn, rye, hemp and flax crops.
