Brandywine: A Military History of the Battle that Lost Philadelphia but Saved America, September 11, 1777

Price: $34.95

    

By Michael Harris. ISBN-13: 978-1611211627. Copyright 2014. Hardcover with 483 pages and including appendices, bibliography, and index. The text is enhanced with black and white maps, illustrations and photographs.

Using primary source materials and a complete understanding of the topography of the battlefield, Michael Harris presents the first full-length study of the pivotal engagement of September 11, 1777. Brandywine Creek, which meanders through the Pennsylvania countryside, served as the scenic backdrop for the largest battle of the American Revolution. Encompassing more troops over more land than any combat on American soil until the Civil War, the British campaign that defeated George Washington’s colonial army and led to the capture of the capital city of Philadelphia was one of the most important military events of the war.

Mount Vernon Boxwood Twig Necklace

Price: $125.00

    

The boxwood (Buxus Sempervirens) is an attractive evergreen that has graced formal gardens for centuries and continues to be used at Mount Vernon for decorative edgings. This lovely jewelry, inspired by boxwood cuttings from George Washington’s beloved estate, is created exclusively by Silver Seasons. Artist Michael Michaud uses the lost-wax casting method in making this jewelry. He perfects this technique by creating models from natural elements and manipulating these “copies of nature” into his designs. Each piece is made of hand patinaed bronze with white freshwater pearls.

The twig necklace is 16” with a 1” adjustment in the chain.
