Brandywine Battlefield Event Canceled, Park to Close

I hear that the lecture at Brandywine Battlefield Park that I mentioned back here has been canceled. The state of Pennsylvania has decided to shut the park at the end of this week, and all employees there will be furloughed. For more on the background of this decision, see the Save Brandywine Battlefield website.

It's a shame that the first things to go in a budget crunch is history.

Hubbardton battlefield in VT may be closing, and Fort at No. 4 already has, and it's up for sale.
