— Placed on the National Register of Historical Places ~ 1997 —The Battle of Paoli, also called "The Paoli Massacre", occurred at midnight on September 20-21, 1777. After their defeat at Brandywine on September 11, Washington's forces retreated toward Philadelphia, regrouped, and returned to Chester County. On September 16, they confronted Howe's British army in nearby Goshen, only to have a rainstorm prevent another battle. Washington withdrew from this "Battle of the Clouds" to northern Chester County to resupply, while Howe moved into Tredyffrin Township. From there, the British prepared to cross the Schuylkill River and capture Philadelphia.
