As part of a multi-award winning county project, sponsored in part by the National Park Service and the American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP), Sean Moir has worked for the last three years researching, mapping, and animating the conflicts of the Revolutionary War troop movements in Chester and Delaware Counties. Known as the Philadelphia Campaign, this included three battles within two weeks: the Battle of Brandywine, the Battle of the Clouds, and the Paoli Massacre. Sean’s presentation establishes the context of the Philadelphia Campaign within the American Revolution, and uses unique animated maps to help tie these events to local sites.
