Our records show a pension application for one, Robert Wats, of Culpepper County, Virginia who served in Captain George Slaughter's Company, Col. Mullenburg's then Bowman's Reg't "in the line of the State of Virginia on the Continental establishment". Could you folks confirm or deny any part of this? Thanks for your help. - Bob

I'm a grandmother working on family history for my children and grandchildren. It was such a pleasure visiting this site. It is informative, interesting, and easy to navigate. Thank you. My Great-great-great grandfather, John Watts fought in the Brandywine battle and was wounded. He was married to Lucy Dalton and they had 13 children. They lived in Albermarle County, Virginia. His father was a Methodist minister by the name of Jacob Watts and his mother was Elizabeth Durrett. Anyone with further information would be most appreciated. sandy@kriegerhof.com

I travel through BRANDYWINE every time I take my son to Delaware. Last time I decided to stop @ the park just to see whats there. It was very beautiful & a lot of history.
Marie Ebert, 33yrs. Shenandoah Pa 17976 [09-28-2002]

as an reenactor, i enjoy showing people of today on how people back than lived and fought during the war. i play a loyalist, a citizen living in the colonies who stayed loyal to the king. many people who come to the british encampment at the many events that i do never heard of the term "loyalist or tory." when i tell them on who i am,most never heard of the term. many people thought that all citizens fought against the crown. i am happy that places like yours and many others locations have us come to show and teach what the war was all about.
stan hull, reenactor [09-28-2002]

Thank you very much for the wonderful site on Brandywine Battlefield. I am 7th generation of a veteran of this battle, Henry Bolton, SR (born 1755 London, England, died 1846) Grandfather Henry was wounded in this battle. I am presently recording the "Bolton" family history on disc and I intend to include the article of this battle on the disc for future reference of the family. I now have two Bolton grandsons which will take this history to nine generations. Thank you again for such a clear description of this battle. I hope to visit the battlefield someday soon.

originally from Pittsburgh near where Washington made a famous crossing of the Alleheny River. before the French and Indian War, and long before he crossed the Delaware on the way to Trenton.
richard bradley, 10783 se 178th st. Summerfueld Fl . . 34491 [09-06-2002]

I've visited the Brandywine Battlefield on three different occasions. I'm glad to see that many of the buildings have been restored and are being maintained. My great-great-great grandfather, Nicholas Frye, served in the German Regiment of the Continental Army and in that capacity he guarded the baggage waggons during the battle.

Brian Greenfield [07-24-2002]

I am a descendant of Philadelphia pre revolutionary Quakers and I have literally traveled the world, but have lived in the area all of my life. I have not dug into my Quaker geneology. I do not want to fnd out that one of my ancestors fed Washington dis-information. We live in the 1804 Benjamim Sharpless House on Birmingham Road at Lambourne, on the Street Road side of the creek. We just took three visiting children thru the museum and Park. Nicely done and the volunteer tour guide was enthused and informative. Suggestion: Picture this. American forces planning to face their enemies when they are surprised by a totally unexpected attack from an unexpected direction by people who took advantage of our open society, thousands of lives lost, betrayal by people which caused us to pause and fall back, but we regrouped and then rose to the occasion to great new heights! It happened on 11 September 1777 and again on 11 September 2001, 224 years apart! It would be quite appropriate for you to formally make note of this strange accident of history in your museum, even if it is only a poster on the wall. Betrayal does not mean defeat, it is only an incentive to regroup. Regards, Steve Kelly
Steve Kelly, Local, very local! [07-15-2002]

A few weeks ago I learned of the civilian participation of G-g-g-g-g-grandmother in the aftermath of the battle -- *not* a story that had come down in the family. Thank you for maintaining such an elegant and interesting site, which will encourage interest in the long, tough, struggle of the Revolution. Sincerely, Ann Sharp
Ann Sharp, 5th great-granddaughter of Jane Sheward Gibbons [07-10-2002]

I just learned that my ancestor Simeon Taylor died in this battle.

Bad things seem to occur on 9/11. Including the Battle of Brandywine. We haven't seen our finest hour yet! Just like we conquered the British we will prevail over the terrorist. "Don't get mad, get even!"
Joe Robinson, Born on Sept. 11, Age 44, Haverhill, MA [07-01-2002]

It was very interesting to see the home of my great++ grandfather inasmuch as I may not be able to make the trip across the continent before I too become part of my family,s history (I am 75). I knew something about this area and its history from by grandfather, Edward Brinton Gilpin who was born in Chester County in 1856 who with his family migrated west to the prairie country after the Civil War. I continue to marvel about all that has happened to our country in a short few hundred years. I am thankful for all of us and our descendants that we have preserved the physical memoties of our past.
anonymous, From San Leandro, California (a descendant of Gideon Gilpin) [07-01-2002]

My family has always been very close to its ancestry. Some of my Great-grands were friends of the Washington's, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, as well as having a doctor on the Brandywine Battlefield. Patriotism is bred into our family and we frequently visited the battlefield as children. This year I am hoping to share the reenactment with our Cub Scout Troop. I am glad to see you have preserved our history so well. Thank you for your hard work.

Meteor 1, Montrose Pa [05-28-2002]

I just arrived home from a visit of Brandywine Battlefield. My fiance and I truly enjoyed the entire experience. Just to walk the hills where this important battle was fought brought tingles to my spine. It is DEFINITELY worth a visit. I highly recommend taking all the tours that are offered, and stopping by the Visitor's Center. Inside the Visitor's Center, you will find a remarkable gift shop, with lots of souveneirs. They also show a little 18-minute filmette which highligts the whole battle. Ironically, this battle took place on September 11th. And although that date will always be remembered as the "terrorist attack", in no way should we forget these brave soldiers who also lost their lives defending our great country. Any comments, feel free to email me: shoooz@hotmail.com

Allie [04-18-2002]

My 4th grt.grandfather was Sampson Wickersham, who was a Quaker and was living in Kennett Sq, which is near the Brandywine. As things between the Colonist militias & the Britisth were becoming more evident in that war was going to become fulfleged, Sampson chose to take up arms and against the British to protect the very things he loved most. His family, his home, and his country. After joining the ranks, he tried to recruit others Quacker friends, so the US Archives say, and also that Sampson fought as a Private, under the direction of Gen. Howe. I as so proud of my ancestor Sampson, who's desire was to go out to protect the very freedoms for which his grandparents came to this country for. When Samson left home to fight in the Battle of Brandywine he was well aware of the consequences that could befall him. During his absence from his home he was banished from his church. Now this was not a man that did not believe in God, on the contrary. How fortunate we are for the many freedoms we have. I am well awhere that there were and are so many who are responsible for saving this country by fighting and shedding their blood, and even dying, so we can continue to enjoy our freedom. For my ancestor Sampson coming home from the war was difficult. He learned that his town and family had believed that he was dead.His wife had remarried and what a heart ache that must have been, he even had 7 children with her. Sampson left, heartbroken, left Kennet Sq. Pa, to go to Kentucy. Kennett Sq had been his family's home,since 1700 when they arrived from England, carrying a deed signed by Wm. Penn. I am a person who believes in holding strong to the faith, and I also believe that there are times we must take arms to protect our family, our homes, and our country, and that God santions us to protect ourselves. To live in this country is a God given priviledge. I am very proud of my ancestors who gave up so much in order to come to this country. How exciting it is for me, to know that my Sampson took the stand for freedom.

I'm still trying to find out more about Archibald McLaughlin (fought at Brandywine Creek, and his son James who also fought with the 42nd Regiment
George D. Wright, Prince Rupert., B.C. [04-13-2002]

As a child I visited the Brandywine Battlefield numerous times and enjoyed the various tours including the headquarters of Washington and LaFayette. The graveyard was one of the most fascinating due to the fact that the most history is contained within these blocks of concrete. Indeed, enjoyment for all ages is felt at the Brandywine Battlefield. As an endnote-any job information would be greatly appreciated!
Julie R. Rambo, Levittown, Pa- Associate of Arts in Education, B.A. in History [04-13-2002]

I had visited the museum a long time ago on a school trip, I do not remember much and was thinking of visiting there again with my son, and 2 step children. The area is beautiful!!
Dawn LaFrance, age 32 Crystal River FL, West Grove PA is my home town! [04-10-2002]

A great site that I thoroughly enjoyed. I noticed in an earlier comment that Mad Anthony Wayne was involvrd in thr battle even though I didn't see a mention of it. I also have an ancestor who served under Wayne but later during the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1795 that lead to the opening of the Northwest Territories. I'm sure this site is appreciated greatly by all history buffs.

I remember as a child going into both headquarters and checking out the historic items. My god, i used to play at mr. Fells farm across the street from the park. I knew Andrew wyeth and Jamie, carolyn, and betsy. It's been many years since i've been back there.Iloved that place.

Just finished watching the movie ' THE PATRIOT ' with Mel GIBSON. The film portrays the British as absolute animals. When you think about it the War of Independance was really a civil war as we were all Brothers and sisters. I served with a British Army Regiment ' The Duke Of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment ' for almost 8 years and one of our main battle honours was the battle of Brandywine Creek I would love to have some more honest information on this battle as again we are portrayed as nothing better than commom murderers, If the story of the british sneeking in and slitting peoples throats whilst they were sleeping is true ?. I am proud of my service to my country and to be British but at what cost ? Apologies my friends because in todays climate what with a so called united europe etc I can trully say that I wish I had the honour of being able to call myself an American. You are all doing a great job and I'm not a nut or anything in fact I'm a Police officer nowdays so take care and please take some time to E-mail me if the oppurtunity presents itself. All the best Garry.

Just visited Brandywine Battlefield today and I thought the speech on how they treated the injured soldiers on the battlefield was really cool. It just made my lunch more appetising. I really enjoyed visiting the battlefield and learning about the Revolutionary War. I hope to come back and visit it more intensely this summer. Thanks for the info. I like your site, too! Mike

This is the best website I have ever seen! I've learned more about the Revolution in 30 minutes than I ever knew before! I'm bringing my kids to Brandywine this weekend for Washington's birthday. Thank you for creating such a superb, well-structured and creative website. The links are fantastic. The kid's corner is just great.

My ancestor, Edward FitzRandolph, was a Lieutenant under Gen. Anthony Wayne and served at the Brandywine, was wounded at Paoli and escaped by feigning death, served at Valley Forge, Monmouth, Trenton etc.. It is wonderful to see the great web site for this all to often ignored or overlooked Battle. Yes, we lost the Battle, but without Brandywine there would have been no Valley Forge, no hardening of the Continental Army into the disciplined fighting instrument which it became under Washington & Von Steuben. Bravo for an informative and interesting web site!
