This Day in History: December 19, 1776

Happened to be reading this today:

"By a gentleman from the Western Army we learn, that General Howe, and about 9000 of this Troops, are at Brunswick and Elizabeth-Town; that General Washington, with Part of the American Army, are in the Enemy's Front, at Princeton and Trenton, and that Generals Lee, Gates and Sullivan, in their Rear; so that we may daily expect important Intelligence from that Quarter"
