The Governor William Paca Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, recently met at Tudor Hall to announce its new officers for the next two years.
Jill Redding, who is also a Tudor Hall docent, gave a short tour and arranged a delicious meal. The program was a film about the Battle of Brooklyn on Aug. 27, 1776, when 400 Maryland soldiers fought and died in the largest and bloodiest battle until Yorktown and from which originated Maryland's nickname "Old Line State."
