05/20/2014 04:08PM, Published by ACL, Categories: Arts+Entertainment



The Sanderson Museum in Chadds Ford is presenting a new exhibit, “Twelve Hours at Brandywine,” through July.

A reception in celebration of the exhibit will be held on May 29 from 5 to 8 p.m. It showcases Christian C. Sanderson’s unique collection of Revolutionary War memorabilia and artifacts, including hand-drawn battle maps, a British bean pot found on Osborne Hill, a papier-mache shoe used to hide jewelry and much more.

“Museum visitors will be fascinated by the relics on display in this exhibit,” explained museum president Sue Minarchi. “Viewing them is a way to make history personal, to bring the battle to life.”

The reception on May 29 will feature a solider in period uniform firing his rifle, period music by Skip Barthold, refreshments from Brandywine Prime, and a cash bar. Reservations are suggested and can be made by calling 610-388-6545 or e-mailing marketingdirector@sandersonmuseum.org. Reception admission is $5 for museum members and $10 for non-members.

The Sanderson Museum contains an eclectic array of art, military memorabilia, presidential artifacts, local history and collectibles. The museum is open from March through November, Thursday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., or by appointment. It is at 1755 Creek Road, Chadds Ford, just north of Route 1.
