My wife,Rosemary & I witnessed the Battle this past september. I was overcome with smoke and cannon fire as it took me back to the days when my G.G.G.G. grandfather, Jacob Reppert, Pvt, continental army serving with Gen Washington, must have felt. Wow!

I will be visting the Brandywine battlefield this weekend and look forward to it with eager anticipation. I am a tour guide at at the Morris-Jumel mansion in upper Manhattan wher George Washington held his headquarters during the Battle of Harlem Heights. He remained here for about 40 days and deserted it when he discovered that Howe was encircling his army through what is now the Bronx. From here he went to White Plains. All are welcome to this fascinating site so rich in Amerian History.

anonymous [10-16-2006]

Good information. Maybe you could add some of the military leaders names. For example, I have a Revolutionary war veteran, John Sexton. In his Warrant #172, he says he inlisted in the year 1777, in January. He says he inlisted in Virginia, Charlotte County as a regular soldier in Capt. Joseph M******** Company Commanded by Maj. Stubblefield of the 14th Virginia Reg. under Col. Abraham Davis. AHe served 3 years and was honourably discharged at Frederick Town in the State of "Mariland" by Col. John Webb. I would like to read about these military men if there is any info on them. Maybe their records would have lists of soldiers who served under them.

Nice short histories of the American Revolutionary War and about the "Minutemen", which led me to your site when I put that word, "Minutemen", in a Google search. I belong to the Rhode Island National Guard Retirees Association (a RI Army National Guard retiree myself) made up of all Rhode Island National Guard veterans of all military branches and ranks, and we're attempting to build a Memorial site for those lost in wars and battles (like the Vietnam Wall) for the state of Rhode Island. We are looking up historical facts about the Minutemen and including Rhode Island's National Guards' history. Thanks for providing me with this information.

Nichole, 13 [09-21-2006]

My brother officers and I were deeply honoured to be invited to attend the recent 9-10 Sep re-enactment and play a small part in the event. The whole two days were fantastic, so well layed on and so professionally carried out. The atmosphere was one of friendship. generosity and mutual understanding and interest in the whole event. Everyone associated with the Brandywine Museum, venue and event, have much to be proud of and I hope this will not be the last time we visit or get together with our new found friends. Equally,you should be aware that there is more than a passing mention of Brandywine Creek and Paoli battles at the Regimental Museum of the Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment (decendant regiment of the 49th 62nd, 66th, 99th Regiments Foot in the Close at Salisbury GB. Hands across the water, and please rest assured that there is no more tax to pay on tea!

I am the first sgt. for the 3rd Pa. Light Inf. and had the priviledge of participating in this past weekends reenactment. I want to thank all the staff and especially Mike Harris for having done such a great job in coordintating the event. I thank Goeorg Findle, a very dear friend whom I do not keep in touch with as I should, for seeing that I got registered when my arrival was delayed due to vehicle problems on Saturday. It is the very first reenactment that I have participated in (since 1977) that has had absolutley no problems. The staff bent over backwards to make things go smoothly as possible. Thank you for a memorable moment!

hello, a few years ago while writing a paper for an early american history class at kent state univ. i stumbled onto the fact that a grandfather, on my mothers side of the family fought at the battle of branywine. i developed the paper around him interacting with some of the real historical people in the battle. i got an a on it too. his name was george clower and i actually found his war pension records on line. it's with these thoughts i share with you that i wish to honor him and our other revolutionary war heros.

As someone else has pointed out earlier Sept. 11th means something else to people around here than it does for the rest of Americans. My ancestor, William Harvey Jr., had the Hessians and British ransack our house On Brinton Bridge Road that same day. There is a list of all the stuff they stole if you check out Ashmead's History of Delaware County on the web. At the same time Proctor's artillery started shelling our house. Hardly what you'd expect to befall a Quaker not interested in either side. Some of William's later descendants would end up owning both Washington's Headquarters (Eli Harvey, William's grandson) and Lafayette's Headquarters (Eli's son, Chakley Harvey). Chalkey showed Edmund, Lafayette's grandson, the headquaters in the 1850s. I've started a Yahoogroups website for Ellwood Harvey (The Amazing Ellwood Harvey) for anyone interested in the family lineage going back to 1715. One question I have is about how Osbourne Hill got it's name. The first Harvey from England married Judith Osbourne after her husband, Peter, died. They had all come over on the same ship in 1712, but Peter supposedly died within three months of his arrival. Which Osbourne was the hill names after ?

What about the american spy's meeting up with the English spy's (or scouts) at a tavern the night before the battle (or there abouts), just west of Chadd's ford(White Horse Tavern, I believe). Also, what was the Hessen's real roll in this battle? Where they aware or in the dark as what what was going to happen? Is the Brandywine Trail (BSA) still active?

My great-great-great grandfather was killed in action at Brandywine on 17th of Aug. 1777 according to family history and I am trying to locate any information about him. He was from Anne-Arundel County Maryland. He was the son of Abell Brown. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Is there a grave site for those killed in the battle? Markers etc? Please respond in any way.Thank you

I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to visit the Brandywine Battlefield and Museum in January 2005. It was a very enjoyable experience to see the historical sights at the battlefield, the driving tour, and the fords near the Brandywine River. My ancestor, Lieutenant John Stapleton, born in Oley, PA, fought with the Pennsylvania Militia at the Battle of Brandywine.

Thanks to the 20+ year research of my late father, Edwin John Baker Jr., of our more recent generations' hometown in Dayton, Ohio, we are proudly aware of a great family connection to the Battle of Brandywine Creek. Our direct ancestor, Thomas Baker, a resident of nearby Chester at the time, wrangled his way into the Patriot forces at 15. Unknown to his family, he was captured during the Brandywine Creek battle, but feared dead for more than three years. Old family letters described how he later "appeared at the door" of the farmhouse one day, to the shock and elation of his parents and large family of siblings. He had spent his captivity in a British prisoner-of-war camp on an island off the coast of Ireland. In a clandestine escape scheme, he and six compatriots attempted to swim to the mainland. He was the only one known to have made it safely. After spending an extended period in Ireland, at assorted jobs to survive, hiding with the aid of various Irish families, he finally made his way back to his ("new country") in the States. By 1812, he was the grandfather of a larger family that had decided to move to free acreage designated by Congress to encourage settlement in the wilds of the Ohio territory in the west. As they passed through Philadelphia, his son George answered the call to the "new conflict" with the British, and left his wife and children under his father's care for the completion of the trek to Ohio. (George was bayoneted in the lung at the Battle of the Thames---where Tecumseh was killed---and spent a long susequent year of declining health with his "also-hero" father and family until he died.) Our family has lived in that general (Dayton) area ever since. Until our Dad's final couple of years, he did most of his research "sans" the Internet, so I'm not sure if he ever got to visit this great website. I know he never made it to the Brandywine battlefield, because he spent most of his later years in Texas and California. I had talked with him about his plans to get over to the Chester area to check it out someday. It didn't happen for him. I plan to get there one of these days (years) for him. I can't believe I hadn't happened across (or thought to look up) your site before. Found you by chance, today, looking for "Minuteman" pictures for the Internet "re-introduction" of two weekly newspapers I used to publish in this area of northern Arizona. Thought I'd say "Hello" and relate our story. Thanks for keeping "their memory" alive! Best regards, Terry Baker Seligman, Arizona P.S. Coming soon--- "" and "" Feel welcome to "keep in touch."

Now living in Nevada, but regrettably having lived in PA for 31 years prior, I have not visited the Brandywine Battlefield. I am hoping to visit PA in mid May, and would love to see Brandywine. Writing a novel, fiction inside of history, and need historic support. What better place to get the history than where it took place.
