It looks like Newt Gingrich has decided to do his very own Twitter reenactment of the Battle of Trenton. He is calling it a ‘Twitterenactment’. We are certainly fans of using Twitter to reenact historical events, but his claim at being first is a off a bit…by about 6 months. 🙂
If you’d like to follow along, you can read more about the event here, or follow General George Washington (@genwashington76), Jonathan Van Dorn, a private in the colonial army (@pvtvandornNJ), and Hessian commander Colonel Johann Rall (@colonelrall).
It should be noted that while they are going to recreate the battle in real time, the Battle of Trenton took place on December 26th, and not October, so the exact days do not match up.
