Battle of the Clouds
The Battle of the Clouds (also called the Battle of Goshen) occurred after the battle of Brandywine during the Revolutionary War. The battle was fought in East Goshen and the surrounding area between British forces commanded by Lieutenant General Sir William Howe and American forces commanded by General George Washington.
An extremely strong rainstorm, probably a nor’easter, gave the unusual name to this battle and resulted in the retreat of the Continental Army.
The Historical Commission sponsored a presentation on the Battle of the Clouds in May of 2014. Detailed information relevant to that presentation and the battle in the the PDF files below.
The technical report gives a good overview of the battle and the other files give more information (mostly maps) as indicated by titles.
