Battle of the Clouds
Join us on Thursday, July 20th at the General Warren for a Revolutionary Lecture Series.
What really happened after the Battle of Brandywine? Where was this little know battle fought? Why did Washington cross the river to engage Howe again in the South Valley Hill area of the Great Valley? What happened here that set up the Battle of Paoli? Find out the answers to these questions in this lecture.
Join us on as we welcome Chris Reardon as he presents his talk on little known Battle of the Clouds starting at 6pm at the General Warren.
Chris will explain what happened after the Battle of the Brandywine and how this battle in the Great Valley area was shaping up to be another Brandywine for George Washington. Skirmishing broke out in two different places around the battlefield and Potter’s Militia stationed near the Boot Tavern nearly captured Hessian Colonel Carl Von Donop. Find out what happened to Washington and his 10,000 troops situated on a strong position on South Valley Hill on September 16, 1777.
