Jim Christ, Vice President of Paoli Battle field Preservation fund will give a presentation on the nation's first battle cry on the night of September 20, 1777. Learn how British General Charles "No Flint" Grey lead around 2,000 men at night into the Great Valley to surprise over 2,000 of General Anthony Wayne's men and 2,100 Maryland Militia in one of the bloodiest battles of the Revolutionary War. We'll explore why this battle is called the "Paoli Massacre" and common myths about the battle.
