It was not a skirmish but a battle that featured 2000 plus troops on the British side and 2000 plus troops under the command of General Anthony Wayne. There was also 2000 raw militia troops under the command of General William Smallwood that were attached right before they made it to Wayne’s camp in present day Malvern.
We will have our tent there where you can purchase tee shirts, hats, blankets, books, and pick up information on our upcoming events.
