I understand that several wagonloads of wounded soldiers Colonial soldiers were brought from the Battle of Brandywine to the Cloisters at Ephrata. What would be a rough approximation of today's routes for the routes the wagons would have follwed, traveling from Brandywine Battlefield to Ephrata Cloisters? Thank you for any response.

I would like you guys to read his correspondence (charles cornwallis)letters, and thoughts and you would get a better view of him considering the Marquis cornwallis voted against the stamp act that kicked off the war! He was an amazing man who served his country well even after his defeat at yorktown. He was not courtmarshaled and became viceroy of both India and put down the Irish rebellion of the end of the 19th century!

Hello, Friends of Historic Glasgow (DE) National Park would like you to visit the following online campaign, by iPetitions: http://www.ipetitions.com/campaigns/historicglasgowpark Message: new iPetition: http://www.ipetitions.com/campaigns/historicglasgowpark We, the undersigned, petition our Federal, Delaware, and New Castle County leaders to do all that is within their powers to preserve the Glasgow National Historic area, the site of Delaware's only Revolutionary War battle, the running skirmish from Aikentown to Iron Hill, called the Battle of Cooch's Bridge. The properties now threatened are the Brooks/Middleton house, the Barczewski farm (West End Dairy), and the Rte. 72 / Old Baltimore Pike frontage near Cooch's Bridge. HEAR YE! HEAR YE! ALL OF AMERICA The Developers are coming! The Developers are coming! Join in the effort to preserve the lands now at risk which encompass the Revolutionary War Battle of Cooch's Bridge in New Castle County, Delaware. The running skirmish between Aikentown (Glasgow) and Iron Hill was our first defensive action against the Red Coats' late summer 1777 advance from the Head of Elk to Philadelphia. The Patriots succeeded in stalling the British and Hessians troops and inflicting a great many casualties. A history park will boost tourism in nearby counties of Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. Three key properties in the Pencader Hundred, New Castle County, DE, are now threatened: * Royal Farms plans to develop the corner of Rte. 72 and Old Baltimore Pike on the gateway of the historic battle grounds at Cooch's Bridge, even as the surrounding lands are safely under state control. * Walgreens had planned to demolish the colonial Brooks/Middleton house and barn at 2314 Glasgow Ave. to develop the corner of Rte. 40 and old Rte. 896, a property which anchors the Aiken's Tavern National Historic District. * Developers are trying to purchase the neighboring farm (the Barczewski property; West End Dairy), 240 acres containing two documented Native American Indian camps, earthen works from the British occupation of Aikentown (Glasgow), remnants of the LaTrobe feeder canal from 1804, and several structures on the National Register of Historic Places (Dr. Samuel Henry Black). General Lafayette named the farm "La Grange" while a visitor there in 1824. What you can do: << Sign our petition at http://www.ipetitions.com/campaigns/historicglasgowpark << Write to your governmental representatives. << Come to the Friends of Historic Glasgow group meeting When: Wednesday, October 6, 2004 at 7:00 PM Where: Pencader Presbyterian Church 2303 Glasgow Avenue Glasgow, Delaware 19702 Please see the Current Community Calendar Events section at: http://www.neighborhoodlink.com/org/clubcal.html?nclubid=888222976&nsupercity=950560750 for information on additional key meetings. N.B.: The Friends of Historic Glasgow will meet the first Wednesday of each month, 7:00 p.m. at Pencader Presbyterian Church, Glasgow, Delaware. << Volunteer to help Friends of Historic Glasgow National Park.

ivan [09-29-2004]

Hello everyone. I just want to provide for the desired American point of view. I am not very old, and I have not long been interested in the revolutionary period, but I think I know a little bit. In My history class at the college I attend, the teacher taught that the support for the war was more like 1/3 of the people. Also, 1/3 didn't care, and 1/3 did not support the Revolution. He also taught that basically no revolution has ever (I should never say never - I know) had popular - as in majority - support. However, my teacher is only one source of this information, and more would be required to confrim it (yet there is still the fact that he has undoubtedly read and learned a great deal more information on the subject than me, which makes me inclined to trust his judgements). There is also the Quote from John Adams (Signer of the Declaration and Second President) that says, "But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American wars? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people." This assertion is supported by the fact that, as Adams traveled from town to town in the time preceding the War, he overheard, in taverns, conversations amongst "common men" that were highly in favor of Independence for the colonies. There is also the factor of "the Sons of Liberty" that must be accounted for. They were involved in spreading propaganda - if you will - that served to enflame the blood of the colonists. The Boston Massacre is a good example. The incident was portrayed by Paul Revere as the cold-blooded slaughter of some upstanding Colonists. In reality, however, the group killed were rebel rousers who provoked the soldiers by pelting them with rocks. Also, whoever it was that uttered the word "fire" to the soldiers is unknown, and, interestingly, John Adams defended the soldiers in court - for the sake of fairness. War is definately a tragedy, but that is not to say that those in war that are fighting for a righteous cause are somehow guilty in bringing it about. England, I think, was tyrranical. The long list of grievences outlined in the declaration of independence is testament to that. One of the best examples comes from an ommited portion of the document where slavery is mentioned. It says something to the effect of "He [the king] has waged war against humanity itself," in that, even though England had no slavery, it fully supported slavery in the colonies, and even undertook to prevent the colonies from passing legislation to ban the "buying and selling of men". There is no realistic way that America could have existed in the form of colonies of England for any length of time, and not be under tyrrany. Even if delegates were sent to parliament, it would make little difference. The colonies would have no power anyway. In addition to that it would be laborious to communicate across the Atlantic, considering that it took somewhere around a month to sail the distance. With regards to France and Spain, it is true that America could not have won the war without their help. From such foreign powers, America received loans to help pay for the war. Also, France provided us with their naval vessels - something America did not have. France wanted Britain out of North America just as much as we did, and their intentions were not so pure. They ended up wanting to call the shots and wanted to have America in their debt. I cannot say this with unwavering surety, but I am sure that France helped America for its own interest. Another large factor of Americas success (besides the favor of Divine Providence, I like to think) is that we chose our battles. General Washington did not fight battles that he could not win. This, combined with the complete lack of respect -and the the arrogance - of the British (like attacking the Contenental Army UPHILL) led to the defeat of the "greatest" military in the world by a bunch of farmers with pitchforks. I hope that this sufficiently addresses all of the subjects. I repeat that I am no scholar, and I pray that this has shown nothing but amiability toward the readers. Thank you.

travis white [08-26-2004]

I am currently studying the War of independence and form what i read, its seems to be more of a Civil war than a fight for freedom, it states that about 1 in 12 people wanted the war, i dont think this seems like a war against tyranny. I think the war is a tragedy which ever way you look at it, a lot of the things that happened during the conflict were tragic and a lot of young men lost their lives fighting for something they believed in. It seems that the British are easy targets in making them the bad guy. Can anyone realistically tell me how the COlonies could have sustained the war without the aid from both France and Spain, i think if you look closely at it, the main reason that Britian lost the war was she had other intereste elsewhere that were threatened and she simply couldnt fight wars on every continent. A Reply would be great from and American point of view on the war.

Siedah, no [08-25-2004]

I recently acquired an American militiaman's belt w/scabbard and cartridge box attached(sewn on) with the bayonet. It came out of kent,Connecticut and was in the Pratt-Northrop family. Quite a nice piece of history! On October 17th,1777 George Washington wrote the President of the continental Congress insisting they re-think the design for the cartridge boxes. He felt an extra flap for the cartridge box top would be sufficient to keep the weather from getting to the cartridges better. G.Washington insisted they be made of a fine heavy leather. Just thought I'd share some history. Thanks folks and keep up the great website! It's enjoyable. Take care.

My mother was born there Anna Jane Crossland She married William Flowers. I don't know if she was married in DE or PA Her daughter married William E Lloyd who was killed near Millville NJ. The man who killed him was jailed because he couldn't make the bond. He was guilty of manslaughter and reckless driving. My father was a father of nine childrenI was 10 yrs. old when he died. the driver of the other car was J DeRocco from Washington DC I would appreciate any information concering his parents. They were Lloyds, but thst's all I know about them. I want to know my paternal grandparents names and futher back in his family. I'm so desperate to know. I'm not getting any younger. He was killed leaving 9 childre at home. He was Constable of Chester Township. I don't know much more than what I've told you. Please no jokes or false information. It is so important to our family.Thank you for reading this and God bless you if you know something I don't. God bless you . Evelyn Lloyd Gland My mother's name was Isabella Flowers Lloyd
Evelyn Lloyd Gland, I am 60 yrs. old.I would like to know about residents of Cooches Bridge [05-31-2004]

My ancestor was a Bristish soldier in the Niagara area. We have documented information about the hardships of his family during the war and the Hungry Years 1787-1789 and on through the War of 1812. This has been a strange twist to say the least. I have had to try to understand the 'American War' as it is called by loyalist from the prespective of land owners loyal to King and England. Do you have more on the battles in this area? He was under British officer's Col. Butler, Col. Johnson, General Clinton, and General St. Leger. I wonder about his possible greater loyality to Col. Wm. Johnson. He gain passage to the Americas under Johnson's patronage. One more question: Do you have any information about a Samuel Cox?

I have many. I will put them down later . Please let me know if any of you have any detailed information how the soldiers and settlers got up the Beaver River, Pennsylvania,thus the Shenango, thus the Mahoning, and any river for that matter. Some individuals claim it was not possible for settlers to go up the Ohio,which I do not believe. More on this.

This site is wonderful and the games and links keep me interestd for hours. I would like to suggest that the music be available as one long medley so that it would not be necessary to keep going back to restart it. Music sets the stage for much of history and leads to better understanding of the times. Thanks

The Battle Of Fort San Carlos occurred in 1780, just after a series of British victories devastated the hopes of colonial forces. The Brits were about to pincer the colonials by capturing St. Louis and winning control of the Mississippi River, thus being able to march east, regaing control of Charleston, New Orleans and the river meant easier build up of force, exclusion of Spanish and French before France could join the fight in strength. The Battle was the only time French, Spanish and colonial forces fought together to hold a common position. About 1000 fighters were involved and cannon was used. the Battle lasted most of the day. Its THE forgotten most important battle of the Revolutionary War. Lose that battle, we talk like hockey players. Win it, we regain direction after the loss of South Carolina and associated ports.

From On a related note: Yesterday I had lunch in Malvern, PA. and afterward took a half hour extra to ride over to the Paoli Memorial Grounds. It's funny how you always see something different, or view something differently depending on how you've changed since your last visit. At the entrance to the little grave plot there are two cannon. I never really paid attention to them, thinking like most of the ones marking Am. Rev. sites these were deemed obsolete at one time or another and donated by federal arsenals to whatever organization would come and cart them away before being turned over for scrap or river fill, and thus had no relation to the period or event (for instance, Cooche's Bridge has some 20 pd. Parrots, and Brandywine has a bunch of long 18 pd. fortress guns marking significant locations.) However, these two guns were cast in late 76 or 77 at Warwick Furnace (hex 4820), and abandoned in French Creek (dumped) to avoid capture, supposedly when Howe foreyed east from Paoli, between the time of the Brandywine battle and the crossing of the Schuylkill River. They were later dug up, but not till the next century when, of course, they were obsolete. Now, they are also interesting because they are short 18's (the barrels only about 6 ft. long). Which means they were for fortress use or mounting on ships. Now a short 18 wouldn't be optimum for use in a fortress because of the diminished range, or in a ship with more than one deck (the short barrel would make their use dangerous in the lower deck, and their weight too much for an open upper, or weather deck (at least for the ships being fitted out then by the colonials). But, one of these would have been just peachy on a row galley. Contrast these to the long 18s that I believe were salvaged from the "HMS Augusta" and are on display at Fort Mercer. At Ft. Mifflin is a cannon or two (I forget) that were recovered from a creek on the grounds of Church Farm School in the Chester, or Great Valley (see game map). These were abandoned by the Continental Army as it
