I am studying my wife's genealogy on the Taylor side. Reportedly her 4th greatgrandmother Sarah Bebberly (Beverly) born 1761 lived near the Brandywine and witnessed the Battle of the Brandywine and described the blood running in the Creek. Do you have any records of Bebberly or Beverly living near the Brandywine during the battle in 1777??

I have visted my ggggg grandfathers (Robert Morgan Roberts) grave in the Stevenson Cemetery, Sugar Grove (Greenville) Pa twice in the past year. I still wounder what happen to him after the Maryland regement was almost wiped out due to poor leadership/and or by poor planning. Everything I have read indicates Robert Morgan was at Valley Forge after the Battle of Brandywine. Howeve, when I went to Valley Forge this summer (2005) I checked to see if his name was on the roster for Valley Forge that cold and wet winter of 1777 - 1778. He was not listed as serving at Valley Forge. In a book written about his son Bishop Robert Richford Roberts it talks about how his father would tell him and his borther and sisters stores about the battle of Brandywine, being at Valley Forge under Lafayette, and Geroge Washington. There are two publicaton where this is mentioned, Frontier Bishop written about his son and Frontier Woman written about his daughter Nancy Roberts McGramahan. In both publication it talks about Robert Morgan Roberts being at Valley Forge. I would love to be able to clear this up. If anyone has any ideas bleas advise.

I am a member of the board of directors of the Historic Elk Landing Foundation in Elkton, Maryland. In fall of 1781, both General Washington and General Rochambeau marched through Elkton (Head of Elk) on their way to Yorktown. The foundation is preparing a celebration of the "March to Yorktown" on the 225th anniversary of the march in September of 2006. We are looking for a guest speaker for our celebration. Can you recommend anyone who has both a knowledge of the Yorktown battle and the march through Elkton? We would appreciate any help you can give us.

ashley, 13 [10-06-2005]
Having several Militia and Minutemen in our family and being intimately familiar with their journals, the premise of this article is mis-leading. Several militia left their towns to muster when called by their country to serve far from home. Additionally, Minutemen were unorganized armed rebels. Source documents would serve well to support the premise of this article which makes a sweeping assertion but lacks footnotes.

I am doing a report for class and I need information for my report and this site was and is very useful. I am in an enriched group so we need this project for about half of my grade and in this we will be making a book about Bartlett and we will be giving copies to my school and hopefully the mayor of Bartlett. If i am able to it would be nice if I could give others a book m class has made. My job for this is to be one of the four photographers and I am a researcher in the historic buildings and homes of Bartlett. If you have any information that might help me with my project please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.Thank you for your information I will gladly use it and put your website and where I got it so people will be even more interested. Thank you again for this information and your time. Laurie

We recently drove through the battlefield and walked around the Gideon Gilpin House where Lafayette stayed. In your brochure there is NO mention of the magnificent tree near the house. In walking under the tree, we did come across a small marker explaining the tree and how old it was and the type of tree. I cannot believe the tree is not mentioned in your brochure! The size and age of the tree were most impressive to us! I am sure most visitors would be very impressed. Just a suggestion for the brochure

I have an ancestor who was in the battle there at Brandywine Creek. He was captured 11 september 1777 and released 17 dec 1780. His name was Andrew Thompson. He waw born in Ireland. Would you be able to tell me of some resorces to investigate to find out more about him? He served in Col. Olive Spencer's Regiment of the Continental Troops. He eventually settled in Southwest Virginia.
Brenda Repass Finch [06-03-2005]
My knowledge of this battle is rather scant. Unfortunately I cannot offer much in regards to hard information. One aspect of the battle that I am familiar with however is the involvement of the 71st regiment of foot. This regiment on the British side was equipped with the Ferguson rifle. The "Ferguson" rifle as to my understanding was the first weapon of it's kind used during the American Revolution. It was a Breech loading rifle that was able to be fired much quicker than the conventional muskets used at that time. I will provide more info on this as time and questions concerning this subject permit.
John Rivera, Brooklyn, New York [06-03-2005]
hello! Good Site! ;)
My wife had a Revolutionary Vet who fought in the Battle of Guilford's Court House, N. Carolina. I have info that indicates two brothers named Moseby and William Childers were in the Battle of Brandywine. Moseby was killed and William was captured and never heard from again. It may be that my wife's ancestor, Pleasant Childers of Virginia, was another brother. I have obtained a veterans bronze grave marker for Pvt Childers and plan to set it near his grave this July 4th in Pikeville, Kentucky Any information about the Childers brothers would be GREATLY appreciated. Respectfully, Bill Sands Sebastian, Florida I haven't confirmed as yet thay may be brother to Pleasant Childers of around Charolettville, Virginia. I have obained a bronze veterans plack for Pleasant Childers and have plans to set the plack near his grave in Pikeville, Kentucky this July 4th 2005. If you have any information on these two brothers I would love to obtain it. Respectfully and Thanks in advance for your help. Bill Sands Sebastian, Florida

Both the 49th and the 62nd Regiments were involved in the American War of Independence. For the 49th it included its first major action. The Regiment took part in the occupation of Philadelphia in 1777 and the battle at nearby Brandywine Creek. The 49th's Light Company, which was attached to the 2nd Battalion Light Infantry, made a night attack with the bayonet under cover of a rain storm. A force of 1500 Americans encamped in a wood were taken completely by surprise, some 300 being killed or wounded with minor loss to the 49th. Humiliated, the Americans accused the British of killing the wounded, a charge proved to be totally unfounded, and vowed to give no quarter to the units involved when they met in later battles. The Light companies reacted to this threat by dyeing their distinguishing green feathers red so that they should be easily recognised. This action continued to be commemorated by the wearing of the red Brandywine Flash behind the cap badge by the Royal Berkshire Regiment, the Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment and now by the Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment. The 62nd Regiment acted as Light Infantry and were involved in the advance from Canada into the rebel New England colonies under General Burgoyne. They won great praise for their steadfastness and fortitude in a number of actions and at Saratoga, where they earned the nickname "The Springers".

I served in the Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment, British Army, who wore the Brandywine flash to celebrate their part in this action.

I'm a descendant of Clothier-General John Moylan. Although he was not at Brandywine. I often visit the battlefield and I live a few miles north in Downingtown. John Moylan returned to Ireland after the Rev War. His son David and his wife came to United States and lived in northern Pennsylvania around 1815. John Moylan had two step brothers. One brother was Stephen Moylan who served in the Continental Army and another brother Jasper who served in the 1st City Troop. There are many descendants of the Moylan brothers living in the Philadelphia area. Stephen was married to a Loyalist (I don't know how that was able to happen. He and his wife had daughters only. Jasper was a lawyer and lived in Philadelphia. Another brother remained in Ireland and was a Bishop in the Catholic Church. The Moylan brothers were all born in Cork, Ireland. Their father was narried I believe three times. As each wife passed away, he would remarry. Thought it would be nice to share this information.

I was wondering why it is so hard to get the names of the people who fought in this battle? Family history tells us that Roger Mourning fought at Brandywine and was so woundered that he could never sit down again he had to lean on a specially built chair. I think this man was an American hero why isn't his name listed for all to see?

The Revolutionary war is losing importance to Americans. Our schools shame our history with the way they teach children about it. Attendance at historic sites including Williamsburg is way down. We are reaping what we have sown by letting those who hate America teach their lies to our children without challenge. Generations are growing up with contempt or ambivilence for their country.

I don't know if anybody looks at these remarks but I guess I'll still covay my feelings about Brandywine. . My wife and I go all over the east coast to battlefields. Mainly civil war but we have also been to at 3 other revolutionay war battlefields that I can think of at this moment.I just wanted to say that I was disappointed with the Brandywine battlefield. My problem is that I don't know about other people but I like to visualize the battle looking at the terrain with the help of those battlefield markers [for the lack of a better word]that says you are here, off to your left over that hill the redcoats marched etc. etc.I hope everybody knows want I am talking about. The Brandywine battlefield had none of those. All there was was two old houses and some rolling hills. Even though we saw the movie, you didn't get the feeling that when we walked out of the door of the visitors center there ever was a horrfic battle there on the grounds.I can only hope that in the future there might be some of these markers because My wfe and I both love the area and will surely be back.

When General Pulaski joined General George Washington’s staff, he immediately made important contributions to the war effort. He led a critical counterattack at the Battle of Brandywine that avoided a potential military disaster, earning him a commission as a Brigadier General. American leaders valued Pulaski’s experience in battle, his knowledge of military strategy, and his pioneering efforts that led to a recognition that he was the ‘‘Father of the American cavalry.’’ While leading cavalry forces in the Siege of Savannah, Pulaski was wounded, and died on October 11, 1779.
