For as important a place as Brandywine is, the Battlefield as an attraction felt like a colossal waste of potential. Washington's Headquarters was interesting and all, but the one at Valley Forge was better. The grounds also need better upkeep, as the grass is overgrown....More

We watched the movie and paid for a tour of Washington's headquarters, which was only so-so. You can do a self-guided tour and get as much out of it. I was disappointed that the other buildings were no longer available to tour, but we still...More

I was running errands and needed to stretch my legs.......that is when I stumbled upon this Battlefield. Not much to see, but interesting enough for history buffs. Plus you can get some pretty cool pics here with family for holiday cards 😉

It's actually a huge part of British and American History. The largest battle of the Revolutionary War took place here. In addition to the war, you see what life was like during the 17th and early 18th century America. Beautiful grounds and very nice tour...More

A memorial to a time when the struggle for freedom cost so many lives. This is a beautiful setting to sit and meditate on America's Freedom.

Stopped at the end of a day touring gardens. Stopped at the visitor center and then drove to the graveyard as the houses had just closed for the day.
