This historic site of the American Revolutionary War, on September 11, 1777,, was the largest land battle of the war, covering 35,000 acres. The association has changed hands in leadership and volunteers associates throughout its existence but has provided consistent leadership, stewardship, mentor-ship, and caretaking of its assets. I have had the privilege and experience of 20 years service with this organization , and, am a source of reference of their dedication and focus during both good periods and hardship periods as are many residents living in the area. The site, of course, is owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, administered by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission(PHMC), Harrisburg, Pa but, receives no funding or assistance financially, and, is entirely dependent on donations, volunteerism, and membership. This is truly a unique and great non profit!
