The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission is partnering with the Brandywine Battlefield Task Force to host the gathering at the park, 1491 Baltimore Pike, Chadds Ford, at 6:30 p.m. The purpose is to gather input for the Brandywine Battlefield Preservation Plan. Topics will include land conservation, historic resources, historic interpretation, education, public access, and outreach.
