The Crossing Reenactment

Out of concern for public safety and due to Department of Conservation and9 Natural Resources’ crowd-size restrictions related to COVID-19, the two public Delaware River crossing reenactments were not held in December 2020 at Washington Crossing Historic Park. Because the reenactments require months of planning and coordination among hundreds of reenactors, park staff members, and volunteers, a decision had to be made well in advance.

However, to keep the tradition alive, a special, pre-recorded crossing video was filmed at Washington Crossing Historic Park in 2020. Please enjoy the film below.

Thank you to the numerous members and donors whose support made this video possible, and special thanks to Canal Frame-Crafts and The Garden Group, LLC.
