One of the first three counties founded by William Penn in 1682 Chester County played an essential role in the American Revolution and holds a rich history. The eastern portion of the county enjoyed a robust shipbuilding industry while the western regions thrived on the fertile soil, and agricultural production was the primary economic driver.
The Battle of Brandywine was fought in Chester County in 1777 as British General Sir William Howe marched east in an attempt to siege Philadelphia, which was the Continental capital during this time. More troops engaged in this battle than any other during the American Revolution, and it was also the longest conflict of the war with continuous fighting for over eleven hours. The Continental forces led by General George Washington mounted their fight from Brandywine Creek, but due to poor initial scouting were forced to retreat after the lengthy battle. General Nathaniel Greene’s troops held the British at bay while Washington’s troops found safety in the surrounding areas.
Published with great detail, this piece of cartographical and American History shows the county in a time of great prosperity, growth, and transition. As industrialization was spurring growth in the Northeast, manufacturing and textile production were common in this region, and immigrants were attracted to these areas due to widespread civil unrest in western Europe and famine in Ireland. Chester County was experiencing a boom in this era, and the unique aesthetic of this map immediately transports the viewer back in time.
