Charlestown Historical Society’s final event of 2019 is a presentation by Gene PisasaleGenePisasale of “The Marquis de Lafayette – A ‘Founding Son’ of the American Revolution” to be held at the Charlestown Elementary School cafeteria on Wednesday, November 20 at 7 pm.

Gene Pisasale is an author and historian living in Kennett Square, PA and has written nine books and conducts an ongoing lecture series.  He appeared as “Hamilton” in period dress at our spring 2017 meeting.

The Battle of Brandywine was fought on September 11th, 1777 and was the largest land battle in North America up and until the Civil War.  The young Marquis de Lafayette fought along with George Washington’s troops, putting his life and fortune on the line for our country.  Lafayette participated in seven battles of the Revolutionary War and was a major force in helping us gain independence from Great Britain.

NOTE:  Our October newsletter said that Terry Maguire from the Kennett Underground Railroad Society would discuss the Underground Railroad in Chester County.  However, he is having shoulder surgery and had to cancel. We hope to have him at our Spring 2020 meeting.
