Thank you, DEC! I'm delighted to hear from you and that it had such a family connection. As I recall, your Pennsylvania ancestors included one who served in Rush's lancers during the Civil War as well. Hope all is well with you. We are reenacting more of the Philadelphia campaign later this fall with Germantown and Whitemarsh. My Ogden and Dayton ancestors were in the thick of things at the Chew Mansion during the former. Best wishes,Tim

Thanks for putting this presentation together, Tim. One of my ancestors fought in the Battle of Brandywine in 1777. His wife served George Washington breakfast that morning.

Best regards, DEC
