On the 240th anniversary of the crossing the Delaware river into Trenton, please take the time to remember an unsung hero of the revolution- James Monroe. He was the youngest founding father and of the more important founding fathers, he is under valued and almost forgotten for the impact he made during the American Revolution.
James Monroe was only eighteen when he crossed the Delaware river into Trenton. He came in an even earlier boat than General George Washington, who had sent him on a scouting mission. He was shot, at the battle of Trenton and the only reason he survived is because someone stuck their finger in the bullet hole. They never got the bullet out of his shoulder- and carried the bullet in the soldier for the rest of his life.
Please take the time to remember such important occasions such as this as a moment to honor the forgotten soldiers of the revolution. Ones who had an impact, ones to were brave and ones who made a difference and mattered! There are unsung out who fought in the revolution- please take the time to remember their stories and remember their names.
