When Elizabeth Chad opened her door one foggy September day in 1777 to see the Continental army surrounding her property, little did she know that her home would soon be the scene of the Battle of the Brandywine, which led to a series of skirmishes from Paoli to Valley Forge. One hundred years later, the Great Tornado of 1877 destroyed towns and crops, and the famous Buffalo Bill caused a ruckus when he strolled into West Chester. Through a series of fascinating vignettes from local storyteller Susannah Brody, discover how the people of Chester County secreted slaves along the Underground Railroad, hosted witch trials and fought for women's suffrage.
