We enjoyed the film and museum and then had a guided tour of the George Gilpin house. This house was commandeered by the British General Howe during the battle of Brandywine.

We went to this battlefield park while traveling in the Brandywine Valley area. This is certainly a large part of the American revolution history, and the small museum has much of the history, some recovered artifacts, and the obligatory gift shop. Certainly worth the stop...More
