This web site is a good way to learn a bit about what you don't know. My class is doing a renactment of the revultionary war for the play I'm betsy Ross this is what I have to say "Even though the american flag was designd by Fancis Hopkinson my uncle Geoge Read thought I could make it.I agreed to sew the flag and I even suggested some parts of the design. the flag was adopted by congress on June 14, 1777 and know this day is flag day.I know a lot about George Read because I'm related to him. I though it was hard to belive to until my grandpa gave me my family tree.

Your webSite is fantastic! However, what you show is a picture of the Northern scene-- Massachusetts to New Jersey. True, New Jersey was the scene of the most Revolutionary War battles, but, Gentlemen, there was a Southern scene, i.e., Guilford Court House, the Battle of Cowpens, the Battle of King's Mountain, etc. When may we expect coverage of the Southern scene? In any event, this website, to quote from IHA, is "...a very auspicious start to an ambitious Virtual Marching Tour of the entire American Revolution."

I think for every battle u should just give a quick over veiw of the basic facts....who lead each army, who won, what were they fighting for, how many died on each side, the date, and ne thing else really significant all together in a short paragraph...for those who don't want to go into detail
Don Cedar [10-22-2001]

I thik that www.ushistory.org should make a Revolutionary War Game where they show the whole United States and a page showing how you can get allies, but you start with your troops inthe original places. Whe you came to a battle they zoom in.It woul start in the French and Indian Wars and end in the War of 1812. I would really like that game I think that it should hve extra detail.

I truly enjoyed reading about the Revolutionary War period, that I must admit, slept through when I was a youngster in school. I need your help to find out if the ship Lyons was the first ship to carry the American Flag at sea. The ship was sunk by the British, where I don't know, but it was raised from the deep 112 years later, according to the sketchy facts that I'm able to find. Correct me please if I'm wrong, but there couldn't have been an American Flag until after July 4,1776, or until after the first flag declaration in 1777. Would this be correct? I am having trouble finding out what year and where the Lyons sunk, and if she was in fact the first ship to carry our flag to sea. I have a cane that has been passed down through our family over the years, that was made from the deck planking of this ship, and I wish to know as much as I can on her history.

JJ , sb [07-26-2001]

I have been enjoying your page for some time as you add to it. Thanks for the service you have rendered. How long before you can give us a list of the names of the regular troops, not just the officers, who fought and who died in this battle? Is there not a local graveyard for the men who fell in battle, with their names? I'm interested in family history and locating two ancestors who supposedly died at Brandywine. Were there no records kept of the men who fought there? Surely they weren't phantoms but real flesh and blood men!

Two years ago this month, my wife and I drove two grandchildren on your battlefield tour. That was a really great way to appreciate the battle ( and how far the soldiers (especially the Brits) had to march. For the first time, we learned about the main battle near the Birmingham Meeting House, and then found the big monument to Lafayette etc. At the time, we also found some small errors or misleading statements in the directions, but I think you have corrected these in the meantime. I know that perhaps for commercial reasons, the Chadds Ford site of the Knyphausen feint or demonstration receives most tourists' attention, but believe me, there's something magical about following the Brit flanking maneuver and learning that Washington was humanly fallible. You have performed a wonderful service to the amateur historians that abound in this country.

William E. Popp , 60 Philadelphia [06-17-2001]

I'm trying to find out just how far Baltimore Pike/Nottingham Road (as it was known then)extended at the time of the Battle of Brandywine. For instance, after the battle, during their retreat, the Americans followed it to Concord, and from there took Concord Road to Chester. My question is, could they have followed the pike further, say all the way to Philadelphia? Or was Concord pretty much its terminus? Washington and company having to go to Chester because that was the only road, or best one, to draw nearer to Philadelphia? Question 2: Street Road: Did it exist at the time of the battle between Darlington's Corner and Jones' Ford in any shape or form. Thank you in advance for your attention to these questions.

June 2, 2001 I just wanted to say 'hello!' and to tell you what a great website you have constructed around the American Revolutionary War. In addition to 2 Barrs ancestral grandfathers, I had 2 Bell grandfathers, 1 Greene grandfather, and 1 Morgan grandfather who served in the Militia and Continental Army. Most were from North Carolina. I have the units the Barrs and Bell's served in but not the Greene and Morgans. I am working on those connections. Plus, I had 2 Barrs, 2 Bell, 1 Morgan and 1 Greene ancestral serve in the War Between the States. They all served in the CSA. My G-G Grandfather James C. Barrs served in the Georgia State Guard Calvary and Infantry. He was captured at Ft. McAllister Georgia when General Sherman's army over ran the fot in 1864. He was imprisoned in Fort Deleware Military Prison until his release in 1865 and was assigned to barricks 14. Keep up the good work... Al Barrs albarrs@wfeca.net END<<<

Response to Cora 09-24-1997 For the past twenty six years, My wife and I have been living in, and paying for, the privilege of maintaining the house in which your ancestor, General Francis Nash, spent his final hours. Except for an addition and some modern conveniences, the house and barn are not too much different from their original form of 1777. There are many short comments and texts available regarding General Francis Nash. However, the best documentation that I have run across was published by the Historical Society of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania - Volume XVIII, No. 3, Fall 1972. The 71 page article, " The Tragic Sword" by Mr. John F. Reed is exceptionally well written and detailed. If you can locate a copy of the entire booklet, it should be well worth your effort.

To whom it may concern My name is Blake Stough, and I trying to save one of the country's most valuable historic landmarks.  Camp Security, located east of the City of York, in Springettsbury Township, York County, Pennsylvania, is the last remaining prisoner-of-war camp from the Revolutionary War.  It housed British and Canadian POW's during the war. The camp consisted of a stockade prison and a village area.  This village area was where model prisoners and their families were located.  Prisoners were able to work for local residents, due to a "parole" program.  This reduced the need for camp supplies. Sickness spread through the camp in 1781, and many prisoners perished as a result. They are buried somewhere in those fields, but it is unknown where. Tim Pasch, a local developer, would like to purchase this site to build $300,000 homes.  While a small portion of the site would be undeveloped, it would be surrounded by homes, and under control of the homeowners association.  This would make it impossible for any future study of the site. In 2000, Camp Security was listed as one of Pennsylvania's most endangered sites by Preservation Pennsylvania.  The story of the camp is kept alive by local legend and written documents.  There was an archaeological study done at the site in 1979, which resulted in the discovery of domestic and military artifacts.  Archaeological study's were also done in 2000, which revealed earthworks associated with the camp.  This study also showed how large the Camp Security site is.  This evidence proves Camp Security has local and national significance and meets requirements to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Camp Security has all the means to tell the story of Revolutionary War prisons, and also York County's role in the war.  One thing we can learn is how the prisoners lived and interacted with the local residents.  The artifacts found to date, and the others that still lie in the ground, can be studied and used to tell the story of the war, as well as the lives of the men that lived there. My ancestor, John Andreas Stauch, more commonly known as Andrew Stough, was a guard at Camp Security.  His pension records document his service, as well as his duties at the camp.  I was not an active part of this fight until just recently.  There are no buildings or related landmarks to see anymore, and that causes people to forget what was once there.  I was one of those people, but realized how wrong I was. I recently met with Ron Bissett, who also had an ancestor at the camp.  Ron traveled to the area from his residence in Canada.  He came to see the site where Camp Security stood, and also see what can be done to save the site.  Ron and I have many things in common when it comes to this topic.  Both of our ancestors were named Andrew, as well as our 5th great-grandfather.  They were also at the camp at the same time, mine as a guard, and his as a prisoner.  We walked the site together as friends, while our ancestors did the same, as enemies.  This made it very emotional for both of us. I am asking for your assistance in saving this historic treasure.  By developing this site, we will be destroying part of our nations history.  We currently have support of members and officers of various chapters of the Sons of the American Revolution, and would love your support as well. Your assistance with this matter is needed.  I will gladly forward all emails/letters of protest to the Springettsbury Township Board of Supervisors.  You may send letters to me via email or my mailing address.  Feel free to contact me at any time.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Blake Stough 227 Rockdale Ave. York, PA 17403 (717) 848-4073 Email: STOUGH1752@aol.com

Hello... I was curious if you could help me out with this thought I had. When do you believe that the American colonists began viewing themselves as OTHER than British subjects? When did they really begin to Denationalize? On the same note, when and why do you think Colonists began to conceive themselves as Americans? Any thoughts on these questions would be appreciated. Thank you in advance MIke

I understand I am distantly related to Commodore John Barry. I know he did not have any children, but that he and his second wife, Sarah Keen Austin raised Barry's sister Eleanor's 2 children. I do not know what Eleanor's married name was. My grandparents were James Harper and Jennie Boyle, both born in the 1890's and lived in West Conshohocken, PA. I am not sure which side John Barry is related to, but thought if I could find out what Eleanor Barry's married name was, I could go from there. Thank you!!!

Hello!
Priscilla Najera, 11years old Texas [05-02-2001]

"Make it one for Washington and all his gallant men,
One for the girl who once was mine,
Make it one for the darling boy I'll never see again,
And don't for get the blacksmith of Brandywine.


As we rode down to Brandywine it was a sight to see,
A giant man with a hammer in his hand beneath an old oak tree,
And all arond him on the ground in fabled disarray
A score of men who'd never fight again nor travel on the King's Highway,

We dug his grave and covered him o'er and sadly wept a tear,
And passed the day and went on our way 'til we met with a musketeer,
From him we learned the story of a brave and angry man,
Who undertook the British enemy with a hammer in his hand.

(chorus)
There lived a man in Chestertown away from the cannons' roar
Of manner mild his woman and child no man could ever love more,
But the Torries spoke a plot one day to waylay Washington
He left his home and family alone to the General he did run.

His errand done he journeyed home, but sorrow there he found
By British his wife and son lay still on the cold hard ground.
The blacksmith reached for his heavy sledge and he gave a practice swing
Next day on the line at Brandywine you could hear his hammer sing,

(Chorus)
I hope this helps you-I just thought you might still need the lyrics. I looked for 2 years to find the album it came from. (I did find one) It is "the Land of Giants" by The New Christy Minstrals

I am a republican, as are the majority of Australians. I have recently become interested in comparing the history of our two "colonies" to try to understand why our countries took different paths. Your web page is an exceptional source of information-beautifully written, and, as other correspondents have remarked, we visual people don't need pictures- your words bring history to life.

I was just in S.Carolina doing a war study. At the capitol in Columbia there was a picuture of the war and it showed the Red Coats, American men dressed tatteredly (is that a word?) and men in Green Uniforms. The guide didn't know who the men in green were. I've been hunting through my history books and I think they are either French or they are Patriots. Do you know for sure and could you let me know?

I would like to commend you on having at least two women that were active during the American Revolutionary War. However, there were many, many more women who fought in battles for the independance of our country. There were more that worked behind the scenes as housewives, campfollowers, and messangers and spies.

I am Secretary of the Warwick Township Historical Society, Bucks County, PA. We are restoring the Moland House, an 18th century stone farmhouse situated on a 12 acre park site -- our architect is John Milner & Sons, inc. The Moland House was George Washington's Headquarters from August 10 to 23, 1777. Here, Lafayette was sworn in and, as his first official act, participated in a Council of War. Pulaski also joined Washington here, after arriving in Philadelphia. He brought with him a letter from Lafayette's wife. During his stay at the Moland House (referred to Camp at Neshaminy, Camp at the Crossroads, Headquarters Farm), Washington awaited news of Howe's intentions, uncertain if he and his men would have to move north to protect the Hudson or south to protect Philadelphia. Once word arrived that Howe had landed at the Head of Elk, Washington and 11,000 men marched south to Philadelphia, Washington stayed overnight at the Stenton House and his men marched thru the City Philadelphia the following day to demonstrate to Philadelphians that the Continental Army would protect them, but ultimately meeting defeat at Brandywine. Please add the Moland House to your timeline, it has national and international significance. This is an important part of the history of the Campaign of 1777 -- including the story of French aid and international volunteers as well as the campaign itself in the Delaware Valley. Let me know if you would like further information. I would be happy to send you a short history. You will find a notation in Washington's expense report of his payment to Mrs. Moland for the use of her home.

It would be nice if you would lose the red bar to the right of center. It's shaded side is just dark enough to obscure the print there, and thus sometimes bring into question the meaning of the sentence. Otherwise it is a wonderful site, one where I'm sure I will spend much time. By the way, each day on my way to and from work I drive by the Three Tuns Tavern and throught the site of the Battle of the Clouds. It is difficult to do so without giving some thought as to the significance of the place, especially when it rains. My route also brings me to within 1/2 mile of the Paoli Massacre. It runs a chill down my spine to know that so many honorable men passed this way, giving all for our independence.

This is an excellent website on the American Revolution!!! The historical information presented would take weeks to locate in a library. My family and I are doing research on our Revoluntary War ancestors that served in the Maryland Line under General Smallwood and part of that research needs to cover the battles that they may have fought, so we can begin to understand what they faced during the war. My Gr, Gr, Gr, Grandfather George Walls enlisted in Annapolis Md. on July 21st 1776 and mustered out in December 1781, so through your website we are able to study the battles matching his service time. Thank you again for a terrific website giving us modern day ancestors a chance to experience the victories against all odds are forefathers endured in the persuit of freedom!!

I AM VERY INTERESTED IN YOUR WEBSITE ON THE A.W.I AS I AM VERY INTERESTED IN THE WAR AS IT IS VERY UNUSUAL. aTROCITIES WERE SAID TO HAVE BEEN COMMITED BY BOTH SIDES BUT MAINLY THE BRITISH, (SUCH AS THE PAOLI MASSACRE, AND THE LOYALIST BY THE NAME OF TARLETON) COULD ANYONE CONFIRM WHETHER THERE WERE OR THAT IT WAS USED AS AN EARLY FORM OF PROPOGANDA FOR THE INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT ?. tHE PAOLI MASSACRE IS INTERESTING IN THAT TO ME IT WAS MORE OF A MILITARY MASTERPIECE THAN A SLAUGHTER AS IT HAS BEEN MADE OUT TO BE, WOULD IT HAVE BEEN CALLED A MASSACRE IF THE AMERICANS HAD OVERWHELMED A BRITISH ARMY IN CAMP OR A GREAT VICTORY. IT SEEMS THAT IN MOST CASES THE BRITISH WERE MADE OUT TO BE SOME SORT OF MURDERING ARMY AND NOT A WELL TRAINED REGULAR ARMY. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE E-MAIL ME SO I CAN HAVE AN AMERICAN POINT OF VIEW.

I liked youre sight very much and am a keen wargamer on the A.W.I period. It is a war which the loser seemed to win most of the battles but lost the war.I dont understand how Americans say they ALL wanted revolution when only 1 in 12 fought for it. I think the French coming into the war and later the Spanish and Dutch had a great effect on the British people at home during the war in that they were fighting for a colony that was 4000 miles away. I think its good that the people of the colonies at that time dared defy a country (England) which at that time was considered the most powerfull of the European countries and that they won. Hope you E-mail back. Thanks again.

I just finished watching "The Patriot" with Mel Gibson. Was there really a Colonel Benjamen Martin?

I guess my "thought" is more of a question..When my 3rd gr.grandfather applied for a Rev. War pension he said he had no plate and very little of anything else. I thought it strange that a person had no eating utensils until I recently heard of a couple more that asked the same question..I believe it could have possibly meant something else such as a bank account. Does anyone out there have any ideas on the subject?..Would really appreciate to hear some input on this question..sundaym@triwest.net

I think that Revolution War was a great success and that if it did not happen then than it would of never happen.

Your site is interesting but not very useful until it has an index which can lead one to information related to specific revolutionary war individuals, battles and events. I urge all readers to request that this be added to the site. The site has a great deal of questions but very few answers and the answers have no tie in to the questions.

I am looking for troops size figures for the Revolution. My son and I got into a discussion about whether the bigger army always wins. I told him that I thought that the US forces were smaller than the British during the Revolution. Was I right? Thanks. Susan Harris

I found a record of reparations for plantations destroyed near Santiago during the Spanish American War - names in the handwritten record are Walter Christenbury or Christenburg, Howard M. Riley and William H. Ludmann or Luckmann. These gentlemen were in the 5th U.S. Regiment, Company Y. Would appreciate any help.
