December 26th

1776: The British are defeated in the Battle of Trenton. But as a consolation, they are finally able to leave Trenton.

1793: The wedding of Prince Friedrich Ludwig of Prussia and Frederica of Mecklenburg-Strelitz takes place. Since it was the day after Christmas, everyone just re-gifted them.

1811: A theater fire in Richmond, Virginia kills the Governor of Virginia George William Smith and the president of the First National Bank of Virginia Abraham B. Venable. Everyone else had to sit through the whole damn play.
