  • Village Record on May 26, 1819 — News — News WORTHY OF NOTICE – At a saw mill one mile east of Chadd ford across the Brandywine, and about middle of last March, as a man was sawing a large Polar log, he was surprised at hearing the saw strike against something very unusual, that obliged him to stop the mill; upon examination it proved to be a Cannon ball of four pounds weight, completely grown over so as to leave no mark. It appears evident from every circumstance, that this ball was discharged from the American battery on the day of the battle of Brandywine, Sept. 11, 1777 as the tree in which it was found grew just back of the ground where the British soldiers were encamped. From that time to the present is more that forty one years that it has lain perfectly harmless, though we cannot say what damage it may have done in its passage from the gun to the tree. [REVOLUTION]
