Almost 250 years ago, the peaceful Quaker farmlands of Brandywine Valley resounded with the sounds of warfare as British and Continental Army troops battled in the largest land engagement of the Revolutionary War. Outmaneuvered by the British, General Washington and his army were defeated on September 11, 1773 and forced to retreat, but with their spirit and morale largely intact. Tour the 50-acre Brandywine Battlefield Park’s rolling hills and woodlands that are testament to the battle for American independence fought on these grounds. View historical exhibits of uniforms, weapons and artifacts found on the battleground and a short film on the battle and its historical significance at the park’s Visitor Center. Admission includes a tour of Washington's headquarters (the Ring House) and Lafayette's quarters (Gideon Gilpin's farm house).
