Brandywine Battlefield Plan Brandywine Battlefield Plan

In December 2013 the American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) and Chester County released the Brandywine Battlefield Protection Plan (BBPP) called "Revolution in the Peaceful Valley." This new study was created after a map was found in the Windsor Castle Archives in 2006, the "Windsor map." This previously unknown document was created by a British Sergeant in the days after the battle. Using this map along with the military battlefield mapping process known as KOCOA (Key terrain; Observation and Fields of fire; Cover and concealment; Avenues of approach and retreat), the first accurate representation of the battlefield ever was created. the signs that currently mark the battlefield landmark are from 1992 and are now obsolete.
