The Pennsylvania government has reached an agreement with the Friends of Brandywine Battlefield Park that will reopen the park next week. A press release from a state senator’s office says:
Under the facilities agreement, Brandywine Battlefield Park Associates will operate the park at no additional cost to the state. Park visitors should not see any change in the daily operations. Much of the park’s current staff has agreed to continue working as volunteers while a long-term solution is finalized.Obviously, this is not a feasible way to run the park in the long term. But I hope it will preserve the operation until the current economic crunch lessens.
I’m quite sure none of this would be necessary if Gen. George Washington had only won this large battle.
