We’re excited to continue our Historical Dinner Series on Tuesday, November 19, 2019, with the focus on the little known three-day Battle of Whitemarsh.
Our speaker, Bob Bradley, will give an overview of the events following the Battle of Germantown to the march into the winter camp at Valley Forge. Having lost two major battles within a month, the Continental Army was utterly exhausted and needed rest and resupply. George Washington and the army spent the rest of October attempting to resupply and make their way closer to British occupied Philadelphia, all while figuring out their next move. Find out what happened during the next chapter of the Philadelphia Campaign with the army’s encampment in the hills of the Whitemarsh area, and Sir William Howe’s attack on the Continental position in early December.
During the event, we’ll be pouring Yards Brewing Company’s Thomas Jefferson Golden Ale and George Washington Porter.
Light appetizers will be served at 5:30 p.m. Dinner orders will begin at 6:00 p.m., and dinner will be served around 6:30 p.m. Menu coming soon.
A Q&A session will follow with complimentary coffee and mini desserts.
The price is $45 (tax & gratuity included), seating is limited and reservations are required. Call (610) 293-9333 to book your spot with us today.
