You are the Americans under George Washington under the American Revolution. You are camped in Eastern Pennsylvania. George Washington decided to attack the city of Trenton, which was under control of Hessian mercenaries lead by Commander Rall, because many of his troops enlistments were almost up. He attacked on December 26, 1776, by crossing the Delaware River. It is said that he won easily because the Hessians were hung over from a Christmas party. In my scenario you are the Americans you must first destroy the Hessian docks to be able to cross the river. However instead of icebergs (there are none in Ron) the Delaware is patrolled by British sloops. You must then defeat the Hessians and Roll. You then must sneak back across the river before Lord Cornwallis counterattacks from Princeton. It is advisable to attack the Hessians quickly because to represent their party, for a few minutes have very low health. The scenario is not perfectly historically accurate. The conntinental congress will not help you in this battle I hope you enjoy the scenario and please leave comments and reviews.
I'm a little confused. I did as you said and retreated after defeating the hessians, but no attack ever came. I had to go back across the river, kill everyone I could find, then capture both cities. What exactly are the victory conditions?

Sorry if it is not clear, (I tried to be as clear as possible) but the victory conditions are three fold. First you must destroy the dock; next you must destroy all the Hessian military units. Then you must kill the Hessian’s patriot unit (representing Rall). You should then have a message telling you to retreat, soon after the British will arrive. Forget fighting them (or try to for an extra challenge) and escape. Then you must garrison whatever remains of your troops in the city of Norristown. The city of Trenton does not need to be captured. I hope you like. I would I like to know what was wrong or confusing.

OK. I guess I was expecting there to be more to it. I looked at the triggers so I specifically tried for those.
1. I killed a dock. There are more than one, does it matter which?
2. I killed Rall. But since he's the type he is he respawns. The trigger condition has been met though , so I guess it doesn't matter.
3. I retreat, but I was expecting an attack on Norristown. I must've missed the garrison order the first time I played it.
If I play it again I'm going to set up and wait for the attack at Trenton just to see how ir goes.

Sorry if I made it sound too exciting. :-) The dock you must destroy is the one on the side of the river you are on, since without doing so you cannot cross the river. The attack is at Trenton; the British should march down from the north.
