We went to this battlefield park while traveling in the Brandywine Valley area. This is certainly a large part of the American revolution history, and the small museum has much of the history, some recovered artifacts, and the obligatory gift shop. Certainly worth the stop...More

The Battle of Brandywine was a very important battle in the Revolutionary War. The colonies were outmaneuvered and lost the battle but were able to show they could fight decisively against the larger and more disciplined British. The battlefield visitor's center has an informative film...More
