Revoultionary War Program

                                                   “The Philadelphia Campaign of 1777”
8:00 p.m.
    The Newtown Square Historical Society hosts Sean Moir presenting a program describing Revolutionary War troop movements in Chester and Delaware counties in 1777. The Philadelphia Campaign consisted of three battles in two weeks: the Battle of Brandywine, the Battle of the Clouds, and the Paoli Massacre. Sean's presentation marries 21st century GIS technology to 18th century troop movements, using unique animated maps to track the events of 1777 over modern day maps and terrain.
    As part of a multi-award winning county project, sponsored in part by the National Park Service and the American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP), Sean has worked for the last three years researching, mapping, and animating the conflicts of the 1777 Philadelphia Campaign, specifically the Battle of Brandywine and the Paoli Massacre.
Admission is free - all are welcome, so please come and bring a friend.
Refreshments will be served.
