Yours truly will be there having doffed my red coat in favor of the blue flag and apron of a publican saving the King’s Army from the horrible diseases they might contract should they drink water from Brandywine Creek. We will brew beer, play tavern games. make toasts to the health of our respective generals and enjoy the great food and drink from the event.
