Battle of Germantown Reenactment

Battle of Germantown

One day in history, General George Washington’s daring campaign to liberate the occupied capital city, Philadelphia, came to an abrupt end on the Germantown Road on October 4, 1777. Nearly 12,000 Continental troops were marshaled for the attack, yet 120 British infantrymen proved unbeatable as they barricaded themselves inside the thick stone walls of Cliveden, the summer house of the wealthy Loyalist Benjamin Chew.
The First Rhode Island will be there to represent the contributions of African soldiers in the American Revolution.
