Project Summary

Named after an historic inn and tavern, which many important revolutionary war actors used as a headquarters. Located in East Goshen, PA. The "battle of the Clouds" took place around this house.

After Brandywine, Washington withdrew behind the Schuylkill, marched through Philadelphia, and headed northwest. Since the Schuykill was fordable only far upstream starting near modern Conshocken, Washington could protect both the capital and the vital supply areas to the west from behind the river barrier.

On September 16th, Washington's 10,000 man army was moving west through the Great Valley, bound by the North and South Valley Hills on either side. He learned from his cavalry that the British were advancing on him from the south just a few short miles away. Although moving to the North Valley Hills would have given Washington more time to deploy and possibly fortify, instead he ordered the army south directly toward the enemy to take up a defensive position on the South Valley Hills. The position was three miles long and was strong, especially in the center.
The American position, which ran along King (or Indian King) Road, which crosses the Goshen Road at an odd angle and heads toward modern Immaculata College, the center of the American position. (Incidentally, King Road to the right heads to the Paoli battlefield, which at the time was less than five days away from becoming a battlefield.) The prominent white building is the Three Tuns Tavern.
