A call to arms for battlefield

Interested in the future of the embattled Brandywine Battlefield Park and its surrounding environs? You're invited to a public meeting on Thursday on the future of this historic resource.

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.

The mission of the Brandywine Battlefield Task Force is to preserve and promote the Brandywine Battlefield and its cultural landscapes by coordinating public and private partnerships; PHMC is Pennsylvania's official history agency.
