The November 15 CHS meeting will be a presentation by Jim Christ, Vice President of the Paoli Battlefield Preservation Fund who will show a slide presentation of “Remember Paoli”, a battle fought near the current location of the Chester County library on the night of September 20th, 1777. Learn how the British General lead around 2,000 men at night in the Great Valley to surprise over 2,000 of General Anthony Wayne’s men and 2,100 Maryland militia under General William Smallwood. Let’s explore why this battle is called the “Paoli Massacre”.
