Washington Crossing the Delaware is an 1851 oil-on-canvas painting by German American artist Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze. It commemorates General George Washington's crossing of the Delaware River on the night of December 25–26, 1776, during the American Revolutionary War. That action was the first move in a surprise attack against the Hessian forces at Trenton, New Jersey in the Battle of Trenton.
The original was part of the collection at the Kunsthalle in Bremen, Germany and was destroyed in a British air raid in 1942. Leutze painted a second version which is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. There are many copies, one of which is in the West Wing reception area of the White House.
This poster is a photograph taken at Mount Vernon. It is sold as a JPEG file ready to print - It is sized 20" x 30". I would recommend sending it directly to Costco photo center - They charge $8.99 per print and are typically ready in about three hours. You will have a high quality poster for your classroom or office!
