Paoli Battlefield
Paoli Battlefield Historical Park

Revolutionary War Battle site which pitted nearly 4,000 of the best British and American soldiers in a midnight raid where Redcoat atrocities named it the “Paoli Massacre”. The ninth bloodiest battle of the War of Independence, it spawned America’s first battle cry, Remember Paoli, heard throughout the war and beyond.

In 1817, veterans built the 2nd oldest war monument in the nation and started a tradition of annual parades honoring veterans that continues to this day.

Two large cannons, forged in Chester County iron furnaces then hidden underwater in a creek, were recovered nearly 100 years later and guard the 1817 monument.

Open to the public with interpretive signs and information.

Help clean up the Paoli Battlefield Historical Park! 

This annual event brings history enthusiasts together in an effort to help keep our nation’s heritage not only preserved, but pristine.

Send us an email at info@pbpfinc.org to let us know you can volunteer.

Since 1996, the Civil War Trust has sponsored Park Day, an annual hands-on preservation event to help Civil War — and now Revolutionary War & War of 1812 — battlefields and historic sites take on maintenance projects large and small. Activities are chosen by each participating site to meet their own particular needs and can range from raking leaves and hauling trash to painting signs and trail buildings.

Join this site as a volunteer on Park Day 2019, the Civil War Trust’s annual hands-on event to help battlefields and historic sites take on maintenance projects large and small. Share your photos and experiences on social media with #ParkDay2019 to highlight the battlefield preservation community. Learn more at Civilwar.org/parkday.
