British General Howe, instead of following up on his victory and throwing a decisive knockout punch at the Americans, instead remained encamped on the Brandywine battlefield. Four days after the battle, Howe learned that the Americans were 10 miles to his north. He sent his army to meet them.
Washington learned of Howe's plans and readied his army. On September 16th, the two armies stood on opposite sides of a valley ready to reprise the Battle of Brandywine. All of a sudden a torrential downpour burst from the skies. In essence, the battle was called off due to rain.
