Lunch Bite – William Faden’s 1778 & 1784 maps of the Battle of Brandywine
September 9, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm
Historical Programs Manager Andrew Outten discusses two maps produced by British cartographer William Faden depicting the Battle of Brandywine. William Faden is well known for his maps of major battles of the Revolutionary War. Unusually, he produced two maps of the Battle of Brandywine, one in 1778 and the other in 1784. Each map shows troop movements and positions along with other aspects of the overall battlefield landscape, but each conveys significantly different information. This Lunch Bite will focus on the Battle of Brandywine, the key differences between the two maps, and the potential reasons for the differences. This presentation will be held in our research library and last approximately 30 minutes.
