General Washington Stranded on Riverbank?

Despite all his planning, General George Washington and his troops were unable to cross the Delaware River this afternoon due to high water, a swift current, and brisk wind gusts. It's a good thing it was 2008 and not 1776.

Although his boats remained moored on the Pennsylvania side of the river, thousands of Washington Crossing Historic Park visitors still enjoyed all the activities.

The General will be back on Christmas Day.
