At 3am on December 26, 1776 George Washington’s colonial army in Pennsylvania crossed the Delaware river and attacked the British at Trenton, New Jersey. Legend has it Washington’s groomsman, a 12-year-old slave boy named Jocko Graves, stayed on the Pennsylvania shore taking care of Washington’s horses, holding up a lantern to mark the location. In 1776, a “groomsman” referred to “a man or boy in charge of feeding, conditioning, and stabling of horses.”

PINNER WROTE: Black History, Remember Jocko Graves, the faithful groomsman You know... infamous iconic lawn jockey holding the lantern! SOME PEOPLE REALLY DON'T GET IT.....THSES WERE BANNED...WHY DUE TO RACIAL CONNOTATIONS?.....BECAUSE DURING SLAVERY THE "boy" who was a old slave or young child stood at the gate lighting the way for Master to come home....These were not representations of freed people who chose to groom & clean up behind horses. Find me a jockey or groom who looked like this!
