George Washington crossing the Delaware is depicted on what state’s commemorative quarter?
The New Jersey state quarter features General George Washington crossing the Delaware River during the Revolutionary War. It was a cold Christmas night in 1776 when Washington and his soldiers courageously crossed the Delaware River into Trenton, New Jersey. Using surprise as their greatest weapon, Washington's army captured over 900 prisoners and secured the town. Later that night, his army continued towards Princeton, NJ, again taking the enemy by surprise. The quarter's design is based on the 1851 painting by Emmanuel Leutze, "Washington Crossing the Delaware," which currently hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
