John Dickinson Plantation Dover Purchased by his father in 1740, John Dickinson is known as the “Penman of the Revolution.”
Old Swedes Episcopal Church Wilmington Built 1768-69, it housed British soldiers after the Battle of Brandywine.

The British red coat (which gave the British soldiers the soubriquet of lobsterback) had been instituted in 1660 and was not to leave the battlefield until 1882. It was the national corporate logo, and arrayed beneath it were subordinate brands — the regiments with their facing colors (the contrast color of the lapel and cuff), connected to the mother brand but differentiated.
