The Other 9/11 —- The Battle of Brandywine,
On September 11th, 1777 the largest engagement of the Revolutionary War was fought near Brandywine Creek, Pennsylvania .  The battle would also be the worst defeat for the American colonists, decimating the Continental Army and causing the loss of nearly all the army’s artillery.  Worse yet, the defeat led to the nine month British occupation of Philadelphia, forcing Continental Congress to flee, throwing the colonial government into chaos, and casting doubt as to the fate of the Revolution.
