Google Tour - Battle of the Brandywine

Abstract

The Battle of the Brandywine was a decisive victory for the British during the Revolutionary War. Fought in the area near Chadds Ford, PA and the Brandywine River on September 11, 1777, the battle was lost when General Howe outflanked and overwhelmed Washington's forces. Subsequently, the British moved into the revolutionary capital of Philadelphia and occupied it from September 26, 1777 until June 1778. This Google Tour recounts the events and troop movements leading up to the Battle of the Brandywine, from both the British and American perspectives.
