Welcome To Brandywine Creek

Under cover of fog did this day begin
Charging from the front
Surprising from the right
Steel and smoke din confusion
Men and horses scream in lead infusion

Welcome to Brandywine Creek Pennsylvania
Death to over one thousand men
Who no longer cared which color coat they wore
Blood that bore no differences painting the grass
Staining the water red milky glass

September 11th 1777
Going down in history as just the first
On this day in American tragedy
All but forgotten in these modern times
These men who bled for their country and drew the first lines
