Lafayette at Brandywine: The Making of an American Hero
featured on Pennsylvania Cable Network on Sunday
Author Bruce E. Mowday has more than 20 appearances
scheduled in five states, so far, in 2022
WEST CHESTER, PA _ The Pennsylvania Cable Network is featuring an interview with author Bruce E. Mowday in connection with his new book, Lafayette at Brandywine: The Making of an American Hero.
“I’m honored to be asked back as a guest on PCN’s excellent show PA Books. Host Phil Beckman does a wonderful job. PCN always presents strong show’s on Pennsylvania history.”
The interview on Lafayette at Brandywine is scheduled at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 6. The show will be repeated at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, February 7. Mowday has appeared on PCN on a number of occasions in connection with his books on the American Revolution and the Civil War.
Lafayette at Brandywine: The Making of an American Hero focuses on the importance of the Battle of Brandywine in American history and Lafayette’s many contributions to the freedom won in the American Revolution. The book was released by Barricade Publishing in October.
“For too long, Brandywine has been relegated to a lesser event in our history. This engagement has been viewed as a major loss by General George Washington’s army and nothing more. Indeed, Brandywine was a military defeat. Brandywine also played an important part in winning our freedom. During the late afternoon of September 11, 1777, Lafayette shed his blood in the cause of our liberty. This was the beginning of Lafayette’s ascent as an American hero. I’ve been gratified with the reception of the book,” Mowday said.
Some of the comments on Mowday’s book include:
“I’ve found that many people know of Lafayette, his name appears across the United States, but they don’t know the details of Lafayette’s life in America. We should all know and appreciate what he did for our freedom,” Mowday said.
Mowday is scheduling talks and book signings for 2022. He already has more than 20 events on his calendar. If a group would like Bruce to talk or conduct a signing, contact him at email@example.com.

On Saturday, Bruce is giving a presentation on Lafayette before the Sons of the American Revolution in Morgantown. He has a presentation before the Daughters of the American Revolution in Quarryville on March 5.
“I’m especially looking forward to September and October,” Mowday said. “I’ll be in Yorktown for the anniversary of the surrender of the British. I’m also giving a talk at the historic Hale Byrne house in Delaware where Lafayette celebrated his 20th birthday, a few days before the Battle of Brandywine. The battle will be highlighted at Chadds Ford Days and a re-enactment at Sandy Hallow on the Brandywine battlefield.”
Mowday is being featured at three events in May in Fayetteville, North Carolina. “Another great honor is taking part in the event of the Authors of the American Revolution Book Festival in Quakertown on April 23. I’m to be a panel member.”
