A Revolutionary Event in Germantown

By Linda Tancs

On 2 October historic Germantown in northwest Philadelphia will commemorate the Continental Army’s fight against the British there during the Revolutionary War.  The day’s festivities include an exhibition of maps and prints related to the war, a battle reenactment, graveside ceremony and, of course, an Oktoberfest to celebrate the area’s settlement centuries ago by German settlers.  Travel time from Center City is approximately 25 minutes.  Public transportation is available via the R8 (Chestnut Hill West) commuter rail line (Upsal Station) or the Route 23 bus.
