Battle of Cooch’s Bridge Interpretive Map Opens for First Showing on May 6

Press Release

The Pencader Heritage Area Association will be presenting the official showing of the Battle of Cooch’s Bridge Interpretive Map. What makes this map so unique is that it not only shows the troop movements on that day in 1777, but also it is overlaid on the present- day street map so that viewers can easily picture where the events took place. The map will be accompanied by a brochure which explains in detail the chain of events in Delaware that led to the Battle of Brandywine. Wade Catts will be available to answer questions, and our museum will be open for visitors.

The museum is located in the 1860’s dairy barn on the Cooch Dayett Mill property at 2029 Sunset Lake Road, Newark, just south of Old Baltimore Pike on the West side of Route 72 (Sunset Lake Road). Parking is available in our fenced-in parking lot.

Date:  Sunday, May 6, 2012 at 1:00 p.m.

Location:  Pencader Heritage Museum, 229 Sunset Lake Road, Newark
