In this week's edition of the Chester County Press, we look into the lives of two great Americans: Herb Pennock of Kennett Square, and Bill Fili of Oxford, and their contributions to helping preserve our American way of life ... We take you to the historic Brandywine Battlefield and the steps being taken to preserve it for future generations ... We take you to the preparations for Landenberg Day on Aug. 6 ... We also meet the many volunteers who are looking to save the Mount Calvary Cemetery ... All of this and Uncle Irvin, too, in this week's Chester County Press.
