Row v. Wade - Historical Debate
On December 25, 1776, Washington was about to attack the British and Hessian forces across the Delaware river in Trenton, New Jersey. But how did he get across the river? "I weighed the pros and cons in the row v wade debate", said Washington, "and decided the painting would look much better if we rowed across".
People are still talking about rowing vs. wading to this day.
