I found your website very informative.
Frank Feola [12-18-2000]

What was the Philadelphia Assembly? How did it differ from the Continental Congress, esp. during the American Revolution? I have what amounts to pay slips to those who attended these meeting. These papers are signed by John Bayard!. Did this assembly meet in Carpenter's Hall or elsewhere. What connection did they have to what was happening in the Continental Congress? A great site. Thanks, Jimmy

I think the Revolutionary war is pretty cool because you learn how we got indepedence in the U.S and why New York is still here.

hello. great website
deb [12-12-2000]

Though I enjoyed your site it failed to answer a question which has plagued me since my childhood. Who are the 3 individuals (and who painted the original) in the famous Revolutionary War painting, depicting 3 injured volunteers, one with a fife, another with a drum and the third with the Stars & Stripes? I have searched for years but have never been able to get an answer to this question. Though it may not be a service you provide, I would be grateful if you could at least point me in the right direction. Many thanks.

Nothing is better than finding everything you need.I had a couple glitches with finding a small amount of things,but my sentiment is that this is a debonair site.So far, all that I have read on this site has not became languished and has not had controversy information.If there is any money being spent to hold this site up its a frugality.I am satisfied that I have found a well educated historical site.Thank you so entirely much!

Glenda Nighswonger, La Verne, CA [11-02-2000]

Mapping is absolutely vital, narrative is pointless if we cannot visualise the battlespace. UK readers will find it a lot easier to absorb the action if they can put it in spatial context.

No battle was fought at Valley Forge. Yet, it was the turning point of the Revolutionary War. It was here that the Continental army was desperately against the ropes -- bloody, beaten, battle-weary -- and ready to quit. Even General Washington conceded, "If the army does not get help soon, in all likelihood it will disband." The question must be asked, "Why didn't they disband?" We know what happened here. Early into the six-month encampment, there was hunger, disease, and despair. Raw weather stung and numbed the soldiers. Empty stomachs were common. Cries of "beef" echoed throughout the camp. The future promised only more desperation and starvation. Some couldn't take the cold, hunger, and uncertainty any longer. There were dozens of desertions. Disease debilitated. Death descended in droves. Charles Willson Peale, 1781-82, Portrait Gallery (Second Bank) Baron Von Steuben -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- But by February the weather eased somewhat -- moving from brutal to merely miserable. In March, General Nathanael Greene was appointed head of the dismal Commissary Department and magically food and supplies started to trickle in. By April, Baron von Steuben, a quirky mercenary who was not really a baron, began to magically transform threadbare troops into a fighting force. Also in April, the Conway Cabal, a plot to remove George Washington from power, was quashed for good. May, brought news of the French Alliance, and with it the military and financial support of France. On June 19, 1778, exactly six months after they Americans arrived, a new army anxious to fight the British streamed out of Valley Forge toward New Jersey. They had been transformed from Rebel into a Mature Army. At Valley Forge, we read of words like "sacrifice" and conjure up images of bloody footprints, but the concept of suffering for freedom isn't easily to understood. What kept these men going? What happened at Valley Forge?

I think you need a lot more information on people and battles. The Battle of Saratoga is nowhere to be found! I think you should add.
Christina, 13 [10-09-2000]

When you add up the Stamp Act tax and other taxes that incited the American Revolution, what was the total imposed tax as a percentage of income for the "average American" of the day? Today our own government's taxes are about 40% (city + state + county + federal) for the average income.

Sherry Duval, Baltimore, MD [10-04-2000]

I think this site would be greatly improved if at the end of a battle, you would tell who the victor of it was. WHO WON THE BATTLE OF BRANDYWINE???????
Frizzen [10-04-2000]

I really enjoyed your site however, I noticed a absence of any reference to the Battle of Yorktown. Prehaps I overlooked it, but could you possibly shed light on this momentous battle?

I just want to say that this is a great site. Thumbs up! Bravo. I am doing a project with my educational classes and this site was the most useful of the web sites I ventured into. Thanks so much for putting so much detail into it. Are you working on putting more battles up, because that would be interesting. I was looking for casualty and wounded rates in particular. I was glad to see so many listed. I thought that I wouldn't be able to find as many as I did. I will definately suggest this site to others trying to get information on the revolutionary war. Thanks again.

Kristy, 16 [10-04-2000]

Our family is searching for Abraham Clark's son, Andrew, who was 19 when taken captive on the ship Jersey. (Abraham had signed the Declaration of Independence. His three sons were all captured and given harsh punishments by the British.) One site I found said that it was BELIEVED Andrew died on the JERSEY. Our family said he escaped and went out "west." We believe he married (?) an Indian woman. His son or grandson would have been David Moses Clark. We are trying to find the connection or records. Can anyone help?

Anyone interested in the Queens American Rangers who fought with the British at Brandywine, drop me a line at dgara64449@aol.com. I have a great deal of information on this loyalist regiment which participated in every major campaign from the Battles around NYC to the end at Yorktown. I also have information on Banastre Tarleton and the British Legion. They and the Q.A.R. above. were the two best Loyalist outfits of the American Revolution. The fictional British Cavalry Colonel in the movie "Patriot" was based on Tarleton. Tarleton did not like to take prisoners but there is no historical record of him actually killing any prisoners. Both the Q.A.R. and B.L. surrended at Yorktown.

Is the Lafayette Cemetery on Birmingham Rd next to the Friends Meeting the burial site of the Marquis de Lafyette? There is a very large memorial with his name and info on it, but it also says he died in France. Did he die somewhere else and have his bones transferred as did Anthony Wayne? I appreciate your help.

Dear Sirs and Madams, I have sat at my computer reading for most of the afternoon. Your site has kept me from yardwork and housework. I'm not sure whether to thank you or not. My dog has been after me to go for a walk, but I was too engaged with The Battle of Brandywine! So now I tear myself away but not without putting much blame on your very interesting site. Finally, I could picture the movement of the troops in my mind and sit in awe of what the Patriots did for me and my country.

Very impressive site! My daughter and I just saw "The Patriot" and she asked me how much of the British aggression against civilians was true. Specifically, the burning of the church congregation - is there any truth in that? I have read that some early English settlers burned Native American Indians in a structure that way.

I just saw "The Patriot." It raised several questions. Does anyone have statistics about casualties among Americans, British, French, Hessians? I have been searching for data, but haven't seen any yet. Also, to what extent did the British commit atrocities, such as the shooting of prisoners, civilians, etc.? This is a great site. Thanks!

I have an idea it was at the most thirty miles a day but I'd really like to make sure. Research hints would be welcome. Haven't hit encyclopedias yet but what I have browsed don't really tell distances. Got any ideas where I should look?

I won't be around for the 250th and I want to do this one right; so my children will know how to do the next one. Is our government sponsoring any special celebration? Or am I the only one that cares about this? Thank you for any help or comments. Sincerely, Virginia W. Nelsen

Hello there, well I was wondering if you could help me out. I have had a terrible time trying to find any information on the actual battle strategies used by the Americans and the British during the American War for Independence. If you have any information on this topic or a site where I could find some it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I am so obsessed with the Revolutionary War!!! We are doing a weeks worth of lessons on it. Your website is a treat for my curiosity of history. I would eat it up if it were pie. Especially cherry pie. My mom makes good cherry pie. I wonder if Mrs. Martha Washington made good pies! Anyway I was pondering for a certain answer. What were the huntsmen (also known as greencoats) who performed spying missions and harassed americans were called? Thanks!!!

I think that maybe you should answer the questions that appear in the American Revolutionary War - Philadelphia Area Campaign Cross Word Puzzle openly on the first page of your web site. This has caused me great pains and an extreme amount of time and anguish because i couldnt find 9 down and 2 down - please take this into consideration. Thank you very much. -MC

There is a small map on the left side of the page for 'Head of Elk', I was wondering if there is a way to get a copy of this for my use in my notebook for the Revolutionary War. The map looks very interesting. If there is a charge for that map I would gladly pay it if not terrible expensive. Your site is just terrific and full of info, I just spent hrs. in the Rev. War Soldiers Pension site and that was a eye opener and got good info. I love reading about the TRUE happenings of our nations struggles and not some text book that some man decided that is what we need to know,our history books are biased because of they wanted us to know only certain happenings at any time in our settleing of this country of ours. Thank you for such a beautiful site and all the very interesting information. BJ

I was just told that George Washington fired a bullet in my house and left a hole in he fireplace. It is on Ridge Avenue in Roxborough, between Whitemarsh and Germantown and was built 1717. I have lived here since May. I was told by an old woman that it is documented in the Phila. Library. Does anyone know about this shooting incident? In what book?

Rakesh patel, 21, katy [03-03-2000]

I would just like to bring up the fact that often enough, especially on the net, sites don't talk of the Loyalists that migrated during the independence war. I think this is a shame because if this is how children are taught, it means they are taught to conform to the main current's ideology instead of believing in their own faith. Also, in the same way we don't read a lot about how people lived it. I am writting a story which occurs at those times, and i have no controversy because I can't find documents which relate to the Loyalists or any people who were against the war.

Any info is greatly appreciated. P.S. Thanks for a web site well done!
M. McDonald [01-11-2000]

I believe there was a question about medical treatment. To answer your question field surgery at the time was very bad. There was no annesthetics except drink or conceivably opium. A man hit in the body was written off, while a hit in a arm or leg cost the arm or leg, because the smallest wounds led to infection. Many were simply left on the battlefield. For more information, use Napoleanic or Civil War histories, and even some reliable fiction of the time. The surgery did not change much for a long time and there is plenty available.

gwen, age 14, San Fransisco California [01-10-2000]

Great site. There is a lot of good information. I had an ancestor who lead a batallion in the Battle of Brandywine. His men suffered a lot of casualties. He also served at Germantown and was in the Continental Congress. He was appointed to the committee to acquire blankets during the winter of the encampment at Valley Forge. It must have been an interesting time trying to lead a colony that was by nature, anti government.
David West [01-10-2000]

After reading Danske Dandridge's Historic Shepherdstown, I am prompted to write about a great-great-great-great-great grandfather who is mentioned in her book. His name is Daniel Hendricks and was born in York Co. Pa. In her book she described Morgan as being nearly 7 ft. tall and Hendricks, another "Agamemnon". According to Miss Dandridge, Morgan and Hendricks led these troops of 1400 men who were the first to answer the call from the South. Is there any way to find out more about my grandfather Daniel Hendricks? Records are sketchy but I do belong to the Daughters of the American Colonists and Colonial Dames of the 17 th Century on Daniels ancestors. I have become very interested in this man, what roll did he have, rank, etc. I do know that he died at an early age and that he is buried here in Jefferson County, WV. How may I find more on his Revolutionary War record? Thank you very much for any information you may have or any suggestions as to where to look.
