I am a huge fan of Lafayette and have wanted to visit this battlefield for a very long time. I was disappointed to find that it was closed on a Monday. I did see the grounds and was quite impressed with how well maintained everything is. I do wish that there were more signs and information posted. Don't put them too close to the buildings where it would interfere with photos but there should be more information availiable. The website is great ! Wish I had seen that before I visited.
Brian Miller, 33, Va Beach, VA [09-20-2000]

I plan to attend the reenactment on the 24th with my two children. I am however a little dissapointed to see your main activities scheduled for Sundays, which for some will interfere with the practice of their faith.
Raymond Sayers [09-17-2000]

I really like your website, it has helped me a lot and I'm glad I found it. If it wasn't for your website it would have taken me a lot of time to look up the info that I needed. Thanks a lot for your website.

My ancester, Capt. John Chilton died at the Battle of Brandywine. The information I have is a narrative about his death that day, and is taken from a published source. If you would like me to share the information/source I have for your consideration, please contact me. I was told by a friend yesterday, that very few names of participants are known. I can FAX a copy to you. I visted there briefly sometime between 1978-1982 I still have a vivid memory of a very beautiful place but a distintively haunting atmosphere.

Your site is excellent. One of the best I've found concerning the Rev. War. Perhaps the success of the current movie, "The Patriot will arouse interest in our nation's history, and unknown heroes to so many folks.

I have recently become interested in doing in-depth study of the Revolutionary War. I believe there is too little emphasis on that war in the schools and among the general public. This study has made me so very proud of our founding fathers and the people who fought and gave so much for our independence. Thanks for your very informative web page with the details of the battles. You are performing a great patriotic service by preserving and publicizing an important part of our history. Thank you! I visited Virginia on a Revolutionary War history tour recently. My next tour will be to Philadelphia and other sites in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I hope to see you then.
A. S. Ward, Age: 68 Mobile,AL. [06-09-2000]

We are researching the life of Alexander Shand. From the monument erected to him in Scotland he was wounded on 11th Sept. 1777 at the battle of Brandywine, He entered as a Private in the Royal Regiment of Artillery sometime previous to the year 1760 he then became a non-commissioned officer and was promoted by His Majesty to the rank of Lieutenant Fireworker. He eventually arose to the rank of Colonel. He died 17th april 1803 aged 72. Please do you have any information that may be of use to us in our research.

I'm in 4th grade and developers wanted to build some houses on parts of this battlefield. My grade had an essay contest and the winners got to present a petition to preserve that land. Four people went to Harrisburg and four went to Washington, D.C. I got to go to Harisburg. I feel very proud to know that I helped save something so important. I love learning about my state's history and how the USofA became how it is today.

My 4g-grandpa Mark Mitchell fought in this battle. Am trying to trace his path thru the Revolution. This is the first of what I am sure will be many stops along the way. The account of the battle was well written - I could see it actually happening in my mind's eye. Thank you so much.

Recently saw a print in Savannah Georgia titled something like Last Prayer at Brandywine. Would you have information on this print?
Tracey Munce [04-01-2000]

I thought it interesting to find a Brandywine Battlefield site. Flashed back to my childhood in the 1950's. I used to play in the battlefield all the time, which was easy since I lived a few hundred feet away at that gas station which used to be called Opie's. I remember an old guy named Chris Sanderson down in Chadd's Ford who used to tell us these Revolutionary War Stories. Anyone from that era also remembers the B&O tavern, which was a very interesting (and quite con- trasting) place. Also used to play with kids who lived in a house just down Heyburn Road which was Revolution era and I seem to remember something about a cannon ball embedded in one of the walls. Well, it's a fine website and it brought me some memories. Thanks.
Thomas Opdenaker, Palermo, California [04-01-2000]

I am a retired coin dealer. In my years of collecting I found a button that states it was presented to Gen Lafayette by L. H. Scovill Button Mfg Waterbury Conn. Does anyone know anything about this? Please let me know.
bob ward, Found your site and looking for information on a button [04-01-2000]

I grew up in Newark, Delaware. I visited the Brandywine Battlefield as a kid, and found a British cannonball in a streambed, I gave it to the museum, and all I remember about the park was that a wax figure of a Hessian or British soldier was held prisoner in a pit/or cold storage area in the park.This was in the early 1970s.I hope to return to the park someday and the Iron Hill museum also.

I love this web site!! Being able to read other peoples thoughts about Brandywine is great. Once I read a book on the battle, because I was doing research on my great-great(etc.) grandfather who was mentioned in the battle, his name was Benjamin Henness, it also said that he was married to Dorcas Lee, the daughter of "Lighthorse" Harry Lee. I was wondering if anyone could help me find out more. I haevn't been able to locate the book again, so I'm wondering if I dreamed this up! If anyone has any information to help me prove this claim, HELP!!!! Thanks!!

I visited the battlefield a couple of weeks ago. The visitor center and video were very interesting. We were treated very nicely by the people working in the center that day. I drove around the battlefield taking pictures. I was wondering if you might be interested in viewing them for use at the center? There was still snow on the ground and it was a beautiful clear sunny day. Setting off the colors of the buildings and barns in contrast with the blue sky. They would make a very nice postcard or for use in a brochure. I would be interested in your response. Thank you! Kathy

The site is wonderful. Thanks for doing it. I Have several patriots that were in the battle of Brandywine and it gives one a feeling of what our ancestors went thru for our freedom.

When Eric came home from school and said he forgot his book but needed to write about minutemen I thought internet. Your site was great as it had all the information he needed to write his paper for school tomorrow. I looked over your site here and it is quite impressive. Thank you for graciously providing all this information for everyone. Thank you and keep up the great work.

I visited the site afew years ago and I tried to picture the battle. I felt a lot of spirit to walk the field. I'm from P.A. I just wish there were more national parks dedicated to the revolution.

I grew up in Upland,Pa.My parents took me and my siblings to your park when I was a child around 10yrs. or so.This site has brought back the memories of that day.I especially remember my dad telling us that the creek ran red with blood and not undestanding at that time what he meant.I figured it out a bit later and the concept has nener left me.It was from the sacrifices of thses men and many others that we live in the country that we do.I f we continue to sit back and let our present gov't. erode our freedoms unil we are no longer free then these menhave died in vain ad I shall be ashamed to say that I am an American.

I saw The movie The Crossing on A&E. Now I want to visit Brandywine to see where Washington crossed the Delaware River from. I hate the British for what they have done to my people (not here but in India).

This is a wonderful site, we need to keep our history alive, our country was paid for in the blood of many men & woman, and we teach our children and grand children to be proud of this country and the men who have fought for it.

How far we have been draged ... and I ain't sure the trip was worth it. Lord knows our government, as it exists, is NOT what our founding fathers had in mind, nor what the minutemen, or militia, fought for!!! Can it be that our nation has now reached the point, again, where only an armed militia and minuteman, can correct the situation? Why is it, that our government does not read their history books? Don't they know that other societies and governments have tread down the pathway, that our government is now on, and found out too late that they chose the wrong fork in the road? The question remains: 'Who will step forward and lead this nation back to what it began as ... "a nation of the people, for the people and by the people'? Forget the concept(or fantisiful notion)of 'rugged individualism' ... that term, and its concept, fell by the wayside once the 'welfare state for all advocates' took charge of the system ... OH YES ... THEY ARE IN CHARGE!!!
