Paoli Battlefield Wreaths Across America

Malvern, PA

On Dec. 14, 2019, members of Bateman Gallagher American Legion Post 668 provided presenters, honor guard and firing squad for the ceremony. This location honors 53 unknown soldiers killed by the British at this location in the Revolutionary War. The day after the battle, local farmers buried the 52 dead who were laying on the battlefield. A week later the 53rd was found in the nearby woods and was placed with his fellow soldiers in the mass grave.
