The those British Narcissists who can't get over that their empire is no more you are not nor ever were the invincible palidins you claimed to be! Most of your empire was won against people with lesser technology than you; and a few, like both the Zulus and the Boers, gave you quite a few good whippings before you wore them down.
Robert K. Hackney, Wilmington, Ohio [09-29-2003]

What about John Locke he did some stuff for the colonist were is he on your web site? Also what about the colonist from 1760's - 1770's aren't they as important to? I also think that you should put stuff in like how the others felt what about the slaves and colonist! If all of that stuff is here, well it's really hard to find every thing.

Mr. Aguilar [09-13-2003]

Your "Timeline" is one of the best i've ever seen. Unfortunately, like most PA websites, you ignore the importance of what happened in New Jersey; YOU DON'T EVEN MENTION THE OTHER FORT (MIFFLIN) ON THE JERSEY SIDE THAT WAS EQUALLY IMPORTANT TO HOLDING Gen. HOWE BACK, at least for a while.
bill mason, Haddonfield, New Jersey [09-10-2003]

rick [08-26-2003]

1. I really like your web site. Since you describe it as "a work in progress" I'm looking forward to learning more. 2. Are you planning on adding material on the army's stay at Camp Pottsgrove? 3. In early Sept. 1777 the PA government arrested about 40 men in Phila.--most of them Quakers--and confined them in the Masonic Hall. Can you tell me where that building was?

Linda [08-08-2003]

Your information on the action at Paoli is incorrect in several ways. The Rebel troops did not consisder a bayom=net to be anything but a "normal" waepon of war. (Considering the bebels scalped Red Coats! The casualtied inflicted by the composite LightInfantry Battalion was some what larger than you have indicated! As for the British being "scxared", that is total rubish! The Light Infantry troops involved deliberatly died their white feathers red, so the Rebels would know who beat the hell out of them at Paoli! My regiment wear a red becking to their cap badge to this day and still offer the chalamnge - If you want us, come and get us! One of the two battalions of the regiment is at present in Iraq. Please get your facts right, and don't follw the myths! Oh, see "Rebels and Redcoast" by Hugh Bicheno ISBN 0 00 715625 1. The author is a former intelligence officer in the USA.
Jim, Military Historian [07-26-2003]

Battle of the Brandywine I am a descendant of Capt. Thomas Butler and have been researching his life. Would love to hear from other descendants. Thomas was an Original Member of the Society of the Cincinnatti from Carlisle (3rd PA). Alexander Hamilton conveyed to Thomas on the field the thanks of Gen. Washington for his bravery at the Battle of the Brandywine. He is not mentioned on the website as having been there. You can find the ref. in Veritatis Praemium published by the PA Society of the Cincinatti. Thomas was called the "Henry of Navarre of the Revolution." Some of his letters have been preserved in the Library of Congress manuscript room.

THE SECOND ENGAGEMENT OF THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR Forty days after the Battle of Concord and Lexington, the second land and first naval, conflict of the Revolutionary War was fought in Chelsea Creek on May 27, 1775. After the battle of April 19, 1775, the British troops were driven back into Boston. The Patriots put the British and Boston under siege by completely surrounding the town on the land-side denying General Gage access to hay, fresh provisions and other supplies. With the arrival of additional British troops to Boston, came an additional need of supplies. With a determination to completely isolate General Gage's army the Massachusetts Committee of Safety, advised that all animals and provisions be moved further inland beyond the reach of British foraging parties. Henry Howell Williams was lessee of Noddle and Hog (East Boston) Islands comprising a farm and pasture. Williams did a profitable business with the British prior to April 19th. After April 19th his situation became perplexed. If Williams continued to sell to the British, he would be compromised to the Patriots, and if he refused to sell he would be subject to foraging parties. On May 27, 1775 Colonel Stark of New Hampshire, received his orders to go to Hog Island and remove all animals in the vicinity. Colonel Stark with three hundred New Hampshire men, joined by volunteers from Chelsea and other towns of Massachusetts, crossed to Hog Island by way of a ford in the creek. Over four hundred sheep were removed from Hog Island plus a number of horses and cows. Thirty volunteers crossed the Hog Island-Noddle's Island inlet, known as Crooked Creek (which was knee deep at the time) and made their way to the Williams Farm. The Williams home and two barns were set afire to prevent use by the British. Many stacks of hay were set ablaze in the field. Horses, cows and beef cattle were moved to Hog Island. What could not be moved, was destroyed to prevent the British getting them. A number of British Marines stationed on the Williams Farm charged Stark's men and a short skirmish ensued. General Gage had sent four-hundred British regulars to reinforce the marines on the island. The British heavy fire forced the Patriots to retreat to a ditch in the marsh. The British advanced slowly in drawn-up lines until they were a few feet from the waiting Americans. The entrenched Patriots opened with a deadly fire, killing and wounding a large number of the British. The British were forced to retreat. The Americans taking advantage of the break in hostilities, withdrew across to Hog Island. The British Regulars on Noddles Island began firing by platoons across the creek at the fleeing Americans. The Americans hastily cleared all animals and themselves from Hog Island across to Chelsea "Neck". In the meantime the British schooner "Diana" firing her six 4-pounders and twelve swivel guns,was sent up Chelsea Creek to cut off the American retreat from the island. After the Americans were forced back to the mainland the "Diana" tried to put about and head for deep water but the wind had died. The "Diana" found herself in a precarious position, the wind had died, she was in shallow water, the tide was going out and the sun was setting. An attempt was made to tow the schooner by marine barges. About three hundred Patriot reinforcements arrived from Cambridge with two cannons. The Patriots subjected the British Regulars and the "Diana" to heavy musket and cannon fire. Shortly after midnight, the "Diana" was pulled solidly into the mud near the Winnisimmet Ferry. The schooner could not get herself loose no matter what means was tried. The exchange of musket and cannon fire continued. At 3:00 A.M. the schooner rolled on her side, the British crew unable to work her guns, or even stand upright on her deck, abandoned the "Diana". The Americans boarded the "Diana" took her 6-four pound guns, twelve-swivels, contents of the sail locker and what ever else was valuable. Hay was piled under the schooner's stern and under her deck; the schooner was set afire. A ship of the King's Navy was burned and destroyed in Chelsea Creek, under the nose of the British fleet. This was the first capture and destruction of an enemy war vessel by the Americans in war.

Two of 13 (colonies) toasts at George Washington's 60th birthday celebration in New York city, 1792. Source: a newspaper in my collection, the New York Journal & Patriotic Register: Pennsylvania "May the oppressed sons of libery, in foreign climes, ever find a peaceful asylum in this, our land of freedom." New Jersey May the genious of freedom accompany athe American stars to the utmost regions of the earth and under their influence, proclaim the rights of man." Virginia May the eagle of liberty hover over the world,and grasp all tyrants in its' talons. AND THIS FROM the July 4th celebration inh Philadelphia, 1798, as reported in Dunlap's: "To the brave heroes who died for the Declaration of Independence. May we never surrender the freedom purchased by their blood." I have newspapers available (reasonably priced from $20) from this and all eras in american history. email me, please. thanks.

Outstanding and informative site! Obviously a tremendous amount of work has been dedicated toward compiling data and development. I noticed that the fatality figures reported for the Battle of Bunker Hill on the “Quick Revolutionary War Tour 1765-1777” (http://www.ushistory.org/march/phila/background.htm) are high. American fatalities are variously reported at somewhere between 100 and 140, with 271 to 276 wounded and 30 to 36 missing, putting the total American casualty count between 401 and 452. Sources are less ambiguous regarding British casualty figures ­ likely a result of better record keeping on the part of the British Army. General consensus puts British fatalities at 226 or 228 and wounded at 828 or 826, (perhaps two troops succumbed to their wounds and were subsequently reclassified) for a total casualty count of 1,054. It appears that your author’s figures reflect total casualty counts (all combat losses) not just fatalities (KIA’s).

But I still learned something out of this information even though i don't really like to read. Thanks for the info!

This is a fantastic site, it is so difficult to get much information about this conflict here in England, I think becasue the period is so overshadowed by yet another war with France. I will visit again and again. Has anyone anything specific on the actions of the 10th Foot?

1.Apparently Squire Cheney lived or was staying at Centre House in Marshallton prior to providing Washington with the information regarding the British Troop movement across Trimble's ford. Question is.. IS Centre House still in existance? and where might it be? 2. Spear travelled from Martin's Tavern (again in Marshallton), south down Northbrook Road which was the exact route that Cornwallis later traveled north on toward Trimbles Ford and eventually crossing the East branch of the Brandwine creek. Question is... Is Martin's Tavern still in existance? THNX, Joe

sarah, spalding [04-04-2003]

hello, you might remember i put a message on this site a while ago and got a very nice reply from Jonathan Schmalzbach. i tried to reply to the email address but my messages were all return with one of those "failed to deliver mail demon" things. so i thought i would post a reply here instead. As i am sure you remember (well i hope you do anyway) i was posting that i thought calling the paoli massacre a massacre was unfair. I have further evidence to back up my case! in the reply i was told that the attack was an ambush against troops who could not really defend themselves and they were not given the chance to surrender before it started. By these criteria, surely that attack on the hessians (another dreadful miss spelling from daniel) after george washington did the whole crossing the delaware (sorry if i am mixing up details, you know the battle i mean!) would be an ambush too? the hessians were taken by surprise and so mostly did not have their weapons or even their uniforms. they were not given the chance to surrender until a large number of them had been killed while they were unable to defend themselves. now to my mind this is reasonable, the hessians were there to fight a war and got caught out and so lost, but if you insist on calling paoli a massacre, then surely this attack is just as much of massacre? you can call paoli what ever you want, but i think you should try and be consistant in the way you describe the actions of both sides. despite all the amubushes and surprise attacks they performed, i am willing to bet you dont ever call one of them a massacre of british soldiers. thanks for your time! ps- in your reply you said you were delighted i was british, why are you delighted? i dont get it.

Angel [04-02-2003]

Well look what I stumbled on. Hello.I'm from England. Americans are too fond of pointing out that they " Kicked our Asses" in their little war of independance. But do they know that England was at war for most of it with both France, Spain and Holland, and were it not for direct French support they would have lost it. That we had to simultaneously prevent French and Dutch militatry take over of our possesions in the West Indies and India as well as put a stop to an invasion of our country by the combined French and Spanish fleets. America has a long way to go yet before it even comes close to the glory that was the British Empire. Yours humbly, V.V

darminquell brown [02-20-2003]

i was reading the bit on the paoli massacre where the british bayonneted the american soldiers. I think your coverage of this was a bit biased. why was it a massacre? i mean the americans were armed soldiers, it was a war, and they got taken by surprise. Do you call it a massacre in battles where the british were ambushed? I'm a peaceful soul, so the idea of bayonneting people and getting blood everywhere is gross to me, but its just a battle, not a massacre. I understand that american properganda at the time may have used it in that light. but ambushing soldiers is not a massacre (if it is the rebels did a hell of a lot of massacring!) please email me with your thoughts (also, sorry if i spelt massacre wrong, i can think of these things, but i cant write em down very well!)

I thought I might find this info the easy way and ask someone who might know. My GGGG grandfather John Emery enlisted in the Revolutionary War as a private, on January 20, 1777. he served in Captain James Moore's company commanded by Francis Johnston. His name last appears on the rolls of Sept. 9th, 1778, which shows him sick at Yellow Springs. He lived in New Jersey but joined a Pennsylvania regiment. Does any of you know anything about the company her served in and where Yellow Springs is located? If you know any good reading material on the Fifth Pennsylvania Regiment, that would be some help also. This is a great site and I hope a lot of young people come here to learn something, just like this old guy. Thanks ahead of time. Steve
