Brandywine battlefield bus tour planned

The Pennsbury Township Historical Commission is organizing a Brandywine Battlefield bus tour for Thursday, July 13. It will be one part of the Chester County Planning Commission’s Town Tours and Village Walks Summer Program.

The Summer Program celebrates the 240th anniversary of the Battle of Brandywine, which took place Sept. 11, 1777. There are 12 events scheduled in separate municipalities of Chester County from June through August. Each will center on a different part of the Revolutionary War Battle of Brandywine and the Philadelphia Campaign.

Pennsbury’s bus tour will be fro 3 to 8 p.m. and will begin and end at Chadds Ford Elementary School, where parking will be available. The Brandywine Battlefield Park will provide guides for each bus as they travel the Hessian troop route along the Baltimore Pike.

The excursion will last approximately an hour, beginning with a stop at the Old Kennett Meeting. A second stop will occur at Brintons Bridge Road where British armaments were deployed along the west side of the Brandywine. The journey will close at the Chadds Ford Historical Society, located across from the John Chad House on Creek Road. After the buses return to the Elementary School Parking area, participants are invited to the Brandywine Battlefield Park Visitors Center for an open house with light refreshments.

Preregistration for the timed bus tours is required. There are no fees for the tour or open house. Anyone from 10 years of age or older is welcome to attend. Early registration is recommended since the tours and park open house are free. For further information and registration, go to
