Brandywine Battlefield Park

On the Trail of History is a series of brief descriptions of PHMC's historic sites and museums.

The campaign at Brandywine Battlefield Park the site of the famous Revolutionary War battle, comes to life for visitors as they tour fascinating exhibits and stroll the bucolic – and historic – grounds in Delaware County. Although General George Washington’s forces were defeated at Brandywine in September 1777 in their valiant struggle for control of strategic territory near Philadelphia, their courageous stand helped convince France to form an alliance with the rebels – a union which turned the tide in favor of the Americans.
