Battle of Brandywine, September 11, 1777

The Battle of the Brandywine was a critical military encounter of the American Revolution. Lands within and leading to this battle, spanning both Chester and Delaware Counties, are considered a resource of national significance by Landscapes2.

To plan for the historic resources within the battlefield, it is important to understand how the battle was staged.

A video entitled "The Battle of Brandywine" was produced by the ABPP Grant Project Director, Sean Moir, to further the public outreach efforts about the findings of the study and the history of the battle. The video features the order of battle, military artwork by Bryant White and Pamela Patrick White, and terrain and cultural resource analysis which brings the animated map and the project to life.

Correction in video #4 thanks to one of our viewers: The tri-color flag is shown incorrectly as the flag of France in 1777. The pictured flag was flown during the French Revolution, 15 years later.
