Historical Background
The Battle of Brandywine was fought between the American army of Major General George Washington and the British army of General Sir William Howe on September 11, 1777. The engagement occurred near Chad’s Ford, Pennsylvania.
While part of his army demonstrated in front of Chad’s Ford, Howe took the bulk of his troops on a long march that crossed the Brandywine beyond Washington's right flank.
Due to poor scouting, the Americans did not detect Howe's column until it reached a position in rear of their right flank. Belatedly, three divisions were shifted to block the British flanking force near a Quaker meeting house.
After a stiff fight, Howe's wing broke through the newly-formed American right wing which was deployed on several hills. At this point Lieutenant General Wilhelm von Knyphausen attacked Chad’s Ford and crumpled the American left wing.
The defeat left Philadelphia vulnerable. The British captured the city on September 26, beginning an occupation that would last until June 1778.
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. Can you change history?
