Hi It may interest you to know that certain British units still have a cap flash called a 'Bradywine' that relates to this battle. Nowadays it's an inverted red cloth triangle worn behind the reimental badge. It represents the 'hackle'- the small plume of feathers worn on the hat by the British Army of the time. What happened was that after the first day most units rested for the night (as was normal then)The Royal Berkshire Regiment (British) had other ideas and carried out a night attack under the cover of both darkness and the fog you mention - surprising & capturing over 300 americans who were asleep or wounded. This is believed to be the first formal night attack by the British Army and was considered outrgeous at the time. A rumour swept the American forces that US wounded captured had been killed and a threat was issued that all British prisoners would be killed in reprisal. The Royal Berkshires, not wishing that others suffer for their actions, dyed their standard green hackles red as a signal they were responsible, inviting retribution solely against members of the regiment. This tradition carries on to this day in descendents of the Royal Berkshire Regiment (notably cetain companies The Duke of Edinburgh's Royal regiment and The Wessex, Gloucester, and Berkshire Regiment.) I myself served in C Company, 2nd Battalion, The Wessex Regiment and this company alone in the regiment were allowed (and proud)to wear the Branywine. Hope this is of interest. I'm glad that we are now strong allies and fighting between is a distant (yet resonant) memory. Yours In Peace Roger Barrow

I think that this is a very cool site. But it should give more information on where it was ,uniforms, people etc.
Langley Pierre , 10 Baton Rouge LA [11-22-2001]

This is a sgood site, but i think it needs a little more about the minutemen and how their organization, uniforms, supplies,armament and strategy was. Thanks
courtney , 13/plainville/ma [11-07-2001]

What a great site! I am a displaced native of Chester County and love to see this great historical site represented alongside the more well-known Valley Forge, etc. My children were lucky enough to have Pa. native teachers while studying American history here in AZ (!) and of course they always recieve a great history lesson when we visit grandpa. A big "hello" to my dad and favorite guide, Harold Barnett.

Is there a list of the people captured by Gen. George Washington? I am looking for a Major Troutwein/Troutwine. Washington was to have asked Troutwine for a personal favor for which a gift was given by Washington to Troutwein. This gift has been in my family for apx. 80 years. I'm looking for any info, perhaps from a diary to authenticate this story.
Jenny Hand [10-08-2001]

As a part-time student I am enrolled in a Philadelphia and the Arts class at Thomas Jefferson Universtiy, College of Allied Professions. One of our many assignments is to take a tour on our own of a historic site in the Philadelphia area. I am glad that I selected Brandywine Battlefield. Not only is it rich in history but the grounds are beautiful. Everyone there was extremely helpful and eager to share a bit of history with me. I will certainly recommend Brandywine Battlefield to my fellow students. I plan to return in the future with my two teenage sons.
Helen D'Imperio , Philadelphia, PA [10-04-2001]

I found the information on the battle of Brandywine most interesting for my ancestor by name of Valentine Kuter fought in this battle along with brother Elias Kuter. I am a DAR member through this connection. Collecting genealogy information is always more interesting when you associate an ancestor along with history.
Virginia E. Winter , I am of German descent, a senior, I live in Seattle WA. [10-03-2001]

we are doing research on family history and Benjamin Hawley (Society of Friends) and sons farm was in the path of Washingtons army and they knocked down fences on the 11 and he had to repair them on the 12th. this is a great site and connection to the history of family and country

Great site! I was able to visit Brandywine while I was working on the east coast in the winter of 1995. I felt as though I was on hollowed grounds and it was truly a remarkable experience that I shall never forget. Thank you.
Jonathon Shin , Age 34 - form Dinuba CA [09-21-2001]

I am preparing to conduct my lifelong dream by visiting Our Country's War locations. I happened across this web page and it is now listed as a favorite. The endavors of all that have contributed to this virtual tour deserve accolades. Great data, super layout. I plan to share this site with other teachers and students that are studying the War. My husband is related to Albert Coles, a generational Grandparent. He ended up as a prisoner of war, and to exist, he hand carved a wooden bucket for receiving food and water. We inherited this priceless piece of family history. It is a Treasure that keeps us connected to the time and places that have brought our Country into the 21st Century. Thanks again for keeping this part of our History alive and interesting to all.

I had never heard about Brandywine Valley until a month ago. My daughter and family just bought a home there. A couple of weeks later I discovered one of my ancestors fought in this battle. My daughter sent me this website. I am going to add this information to my genealogy book. As a member of DAR I plan to share this information with them. Thanks for helping to preserve and share our history with everyone.

I hope to visit the park this August. I'm a geographer participating in a research project on land use changes in your region. I'm considering doing additional research on how our "special" places (historic sites, unique environmental habitats, regional parks, etc.) are becoming "islands" surrounded by developed land uses and the problems that are posed by the changes.

I lived in Chester County for twenty years before moving to NC, including four years at West Chester University. As a student of American History I always cherished my time at the Battlefield. This site has brought back many fond memories of relaxing afternoons on the hills of the Brandywine Vally
Steve Surer , 39, Raleigh, NC [07-10-2001]

Web site's terrific. I'm what you might call a history fanatic. Having moved to Lancaster County from Richmond, VA, just a year ago, I've been looking for great historic locations to take my family on daytrips. I'll be visiting Brandywine next week!
John D. Kabel , 39 years old, two children, Will: 7, Tim: 4 residence: Lititz, PA [07-03-2001]

Good site. Went exploring family history..had a relative by the name of george mann who at the age of 11 was killed in the doorway of his home by a tory sniper,about the same time frame as the brandywine engagement..
lavina harman-larsen [06-13-2001]

My sister Mae and I were both born in the Birmingham Friends Meetinghouse which was used as a hospital for both armies during the Battle of Brandywine. My parents, Andrew Willis Graham and Hilda Gutlick (variation of name: Gutlich) Graham and my 6 siblings lived there when it was called "The Bennett Farm". Our mother died when I was 2 yrs. old and my father died when I was 5 years so I'd love to have any information on this property. Thanks, Rosie Graham North
rosie graham north , age 67, tampa, fl [06-10-2001]

Rumor has it that Brandywine, Maryland was named after the battle, but we don't know. Do you know where the name "Brandywine" originated? The family who named the town was from Ireland.
Joyce , From Brandywine, Maryland ( [06-06-2001]

I have found the site to be great and very full of information. I plan on making a trip up north sometime next year to see all the sights. I am a native american and enjoy the history of our country very much.

I am a descedant of William Norman who was wounded at the Battle of Brandywine. He stated to his children and grandchildren that he was near Gen. Lafayette when the general had dismounted and was rallying the troops when he was shot in the leg. William was shot in both knees and taken to Bennett Farm for treatment. Gen. Lafayette was reported to have intervened in the amputation of William's legs due to "the patient's stubborn resistance to the surgeons..." The British bullet and a piece of bone from William's leg was kept in the Norman family for over 150 years.

Fascinating to read of a British victory. At school I was always very angry that we (ie the English) eventually lost this war - yes, I took it personally(!) However, my understanding of world history since 1776 informs me that it's a good job we did(!!!) Much love to all in America. You have a wonderful country! Best wishes, J Mercik, Leicester, England

Wade Adison, 11 Castle Dale,Utah [03-28-2001]

This is my second time digging into Brandywine history. John Graves Simcoe, later 1st Lt. Gov. of Upper Canada and founder of Toronto was wounded there, went home to recuperate and met Elizabeth Posthuma Gwillim, the love of his life. Archibald McLaughlin was in the Royal Highland Regiment - the 42nd Reg't - has his leg shot off by a cannon ball there. Still managed to have 24 kids before or after, I don't know. He was a Pipe/Fife Major. May have been the Archibald McLaughlin, shoemaker, who wished to settle at Newark/Niagara, Upper Canada, in 1796. I'd welcome inquiries from any possible descendant. There must be plenty of you!

I have a double interest in Brandywine in that I am involved in museum management and historic site development in New Zealand, and also have a direct ancestor who was in the British Army and who was wounded at the battle. His name was John Wynyard, originally an officer in the 64th Regiment and was Adjutant of the 2nd Battalion.
Bill Rayner, I live in Auckland, New Zealand, and will be visiting Washington shortly (in April) and plan to come out to Brandywine. I have found your website very helpful [03-19-2001]

From the hundreds of songs I've collected I have a song called "The Blacksmith of Brandywine." It refers to the battle at Brandywine and incidents during that time. I've never heard of this song from anyone else or any reference to it. I'm curious if anyone else has. Please email me if you'd like to discuss. Thanks!

Have begun my Genealogy search. Being my parents were Pa. Dutch, it has been so interesting. Our original ancestor came over from Germany to fight with the British in America. It was in the Phil. area that he was captured and sent to a prison camp, somewhere S.E. of Reading, Pa. So, just trying to get all info. I can on this ancestor is quite a challenge. I love every minute I spend on this subject. This is the first time I have visited this site.

According to our family history, an ancestor of ours fought in the Battle of Brandywine. I think the last name is O'Flanagan. Is there any way to check this out? Thanks

I was looking for information on a relitive that fought at Brandywine on the Continental side. His name was Johann Ludwig Snyder. He was supposedly a gunsmith. I was wondering if there was and survivng examples of his work.

I truly enjoyed your site. Although I did not major in History, I have always found early American History fascinating. I take special interest in Revolutionary History and Civil War History along with the military tactics and methods. This site has just peaked my interest and I will be sure to do further research into Brandywine. My last research was on the Battle of Gettysburg and why the Confederates lost. This was truly enlightening and has always kept my interest alive. Again, job well done and I will return in the future to check for new info.

I am an eighth grade American History teacher and I wish I had known about your site when we were "fighting" the Revolution in my classes in Nov. of 2000. Our book does not give a lot of information about the Battle of Brandywine. (more's the pity) I just might use your wonderful site to review the students after our Christmas break. Thank you for a really interesting site.
