Having lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where Patriot's Day is a
major holiday, for 15 years, I can assure you that on April 19, 1775,
there was a Battle of Lexington, and a Battle of Concord, but there
was no Battle of Cambridge unless Paul Revere and William Dawes were
battling traffic in Harvard Square on their way through town.

December 24, 1776. Washington was getting ready to cross the
Delaware. He didn't attack Trenton until the following day.

I'm not sure I would compliment them, but that does explain a lot.
ObNetwork: "One if by land, two if by sea" is one of the earlier routing
