Great website! It's great for our heritage. My ggggg grandfather was Capt. Joseph McClellan who served with Wayne's Brigae during the Battle of Brandywine. There is a monument in the historic park that bears his and Col. Isaac Taylor's name. It says he was a colonel but he was a captain at the time of the battle. He also served under Washington during the Whiskey Insurrection of 1794 with a regiment of dragoons. The monument is next to Pulaski's and Lafayette's monuments.

Like your site and someday I hope to visit the battlefield. My 5th Great Grandfather Wilhelm Karg (aka William Cart) was in the 1st Pennsylvania Regiment and at this particular battle. Ironically, my birthday is September 11th so this place would be very special to me. My ancestor stated he was involved in this battle when he applied for a pension in 1818 while living in what is now Nicholas Co. WV. It is great to know that the place still exists and is remembered via this great web site! Thank you!

I visted the Brandywine Battlefield State Park recently. The artifacts on display were good but the visitor center seems ruin down. With no quality historical interpretation signs and only one parking area (thats all I could find) throughout the battleground, made visiting the battleground areas difficult and disappointing. Even the Hertiage Park lacked interpretation signs. Many thanks to those who have been trying to preserve the land from developers. I can only hope for the day when the Brandywine Battlefield Park covers must of the battleground and not just two HQs' buildings.

I visited the battlefield last year and was very impressed with the friendly staff. My hat goes off to all of them. I think much more needs to be done in the way of signs and markers. The battlefield driving tour was lacking when it came to signs and interpetive markers. Overall my experience was a wonderful experience.

This is a wonderful site! I took my daughter to the park for a 4th grade report and visited the site for hard copy to do her report. I keep telling my friends to visit different places. We have so many historically significant sites and parks right in our backyard. People come from all over the country and world to see them and our children don't even have a clue that they are here. I visited many of them with the girl scouts and on school trips. Even our schools don't consider them very important any more. Please, please if you live near a historic site take your children to visit. They are so important and such a part of our country's history!
