Maime, You see to be the new Aten expert. So nice to find another one. I have beeout of the loop for many years. Are Richard Regar and Terry Shulte still in the mix?

It is not unlikely that several boats would have been necessary. It takes two to three days to float the 50 miles. The 'Battle of Trenton' was won without a shot being fired. And yes, the crossing took place just north of Trenton. TedPS Stisky keys from young ones easting at thecomputer.
