Hi, great site, recently found my 2nd great grandfather was born in Philadelphia in 1807 and trained for his M.D. there, not sure when or where. I think his father or grandfather may have been a Regiment Physician and Surgeon during the war. I have found an E.Lyons and a Mrs Lyons working for the George Washington Household and being paid for there services is detailed in the Household accounts for 1796-97. My 2nd great grandfather, Samuel Thrasher Lyons settled in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia in 1846 and became a notable Gold Rush doctor. He chaired a meeting for American citizens in Australia to raise funds to beautify the birthplace of George Washington, not sure where it is. He named his son Horatio Washington Lyons and was a proud American citizen until he died in 1872 in Melbourne. Can anyone help me find out if the Lyons family were involved in the Revolutionary War in Philadelphia and if they trained there to be Surgeons ? Any help would be greatly appreciated and i have to visit Philadelphia next year. Thankyou, Peter Lyons Holt.

there is a typo on part two of "The battle of Brandywine". At the end of the third paragraph it says:'IF was a formidable force', and I believe it should say: 'IT was a formidable force'. That's all.

My name is Judith Yates and I am the lead Instructor for the Criminal Justice Dept. at Southeastern Career College in Nashville, Tennessee. I am teaching a "History of Criminal Justice" class beginning August 22, 2005 and I would like to have reenactors present in my class on the American Revolution. I am hoping you can put me in contact with reenactors (from both the American side and the British side) who reside in this area, that would like to come present to my class. It is a night class, held Mondays and Wednesdays 6 -9pm. I can adjust our schedule to accommodate your speaker's schedule and have PowerPoint and VCR available should they need visual aids. I hope you can assist. I want history to come 'alive" for my students and would love to have men in uniform tell the story of the revolution. Please contact me at the below number.

HIGH RISK OF DESTRUCTION BY DEVELOPMENT -- Native American and Revolutionary War sites, and environmental resources on The LaGrange (Barczewski) farm in Glasgow, DE Stephen J. Nichols, a developer in Glasgow, DE, has signed a contract to purchase by November 10, 2005, with the intent to immediately develop, the entire Barczewski farm (also known as the La Grange or Dr. Samuel Henry Black farm). Mr. Nichols wants to place 232 houses and a 5 acre commercial shopping center on the property. He also intends to allow the Friendship Baptist Church to purchase acreage to create a 300 vehicle parking lot and the Christina School District to buy more than 50 acres of the farm, including the historic manor house and granary, so that a public elementary school can be built. This property is crisscrossed by state and Federally recognized wetlands and over 1 mile of drainage, is in the Christiana watershed, contains part of the Glasgow recharge aquifer, and is bounded by over 3/4 mile of the Muddy Run Creek. The 136 acres of woods on the farm are in a US Department of Agriculture's local National Resources Conservation Service long-term tree management plan. The Barczewski farm's 236 acres contain two documented Native American Indian sites, earthen works from the British and Hessian occupation of Aikentown (Glasgow), a remnant of the Benjamin Latrobe feeder canal from 1804, and several structures on the National Register of Historic Places (Dr. Samuel Henry Black). Dorcas Armitage Middleton Black was the wife of Samuel H. Black. General Lafayette named the farm "La Grange" while a visitor there in October 1824. The Federal US Censuses of 1810 and 1820 for DE/NCCo/Pencader Hundred, show that there were three FREE African-Americans (unnamed - husband, wife, and daughter) who were part of Dr. Samuel H. Black's household. The farm is located near the northwest corner of Routes U.S. 40 and Del. 896 in Glasgow (New Castle County, Pencader Hundred), and is comprised of a single tract of 236 acres. Approximately 100 acres are pastures, and approximately 136 acres are wooded. The Muddy Run creek and some of its tributaries run through and forms 3/4 of a mile of the northern boundary of the property. This property contains the historic home and farm of Glasgow's early physician, University of DE trustee, and state politician, Dr. Samuel Henry Black. The land, however, had been farmed for over 100 years before Dr. Black acquired it. The property has a carefully restored historic home and preserved granary, each dating to 1815, and more recent barns and outbuildings dating to the property's days in the 1940s through 1960s as the West End Dairy farm. Other family names associated over time with this farm include Middleton, Frazier, Leasure, Congo, Cooch, and Veach. Dr. Samuel H. Black built the property's granary. The building incorporates consolidated storage and processing functions and wheeled vehicle access. This building is the earliest documented example of a drive-through granary of the type that was to become popular throughout the Northeastern U.S. in the mid-19th century. In July 1974, the large manor Federal period home and the granary were incorporated into the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places (NRHP #74000601). Areas of NRHP significance of this property include Health/Medicine, Architecture, Social History, and Agriculture. In 1985, the La Grange granary was incorporated into the highly selective Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) / Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) conducted by the US Department of the Interior and maintained by the US Library of Congress (Survey # HABS DE-216). In 1989, La Grange was designated statewide as a Delaware Farm of Distinction. There are two archeologist documented Native American sites on the La Grange farm (the Butterworth and the Barczewski sites). These sites date from 6,500 BC to 1,000 AD. Over 1,800 authentic Paleo-Indian, Early Archaic, and Woodland periods' arrow points, knife blades, and other stone implements have been found all over the farm's land. In the farm's woods there are intact remains of British and Hessian earthen trenches from the September 3, 1777, Revolutionary War battle of Cooch's bridge. The trenches run parallel to the remnants of a historic and ancient, but now abandoned road, of which the last remaining vestiges exist on the LaGrange Farm. The earthworks are also parallel Rt. 40 West from Glasgow, DE, to Elkton, MD, and face Iron Hill. There is also documented evidence on the farm of Benjamin Latrobe's venture to build a feeder canal in 1804 (New Castle County Historical Marker NC-59). The feeder canal remnant is intact. The canal was to be built from the Elk Creek to the Christiana River, with the ultimate goal of the canal connecting the Delaware and Chesapeake waterways. The project failed, however, because the state of Delaware ran out of money before the canal was completed. A remnant of the feeder canal runs from Rt. 40 West through the La Grange farm. On May 30, 1973, Anne Barczewski vowed that the 236 acres of her farm "will never fall into the hands of builders and developers." ("Threatened by Cloverleaf", The News Gazette, New Castle, DE.) In 1996, Anne Barczewski was honored with a prestigious historic preservation award from the New Castle County Historic Preservation Review Board. The Board placed a protective Historic Zoning overlay upon the entire 236 acres of the La Grange farm. In 1997, Anne Barczewski was recognized as Delaware's Tree Farmer of the Year. On June 27, 1997, Anne Barczewski told preservation advocates, "If it was my last word, my last breath, I'd say 'no' to a developer." ("Where Green Trees, Not Greenbacks, Flourish. Anne Barczewski resists developers' offers and wins the state's Tree Farmer of the Year Award." The News Journal, Wilmington, DE. Robin Brown, 6/27/1997, pg. B-3.) More over, there has not been a moneyman yet who has been able to persuade Anne Barczewski to part with a parcel of her land. ("Treasure in the woods. Delaware farmers learn there is good money, and environmental bonuses, in well-managed timberland. Bucking development." The News Journal, Business Monday insert, Wilmington, DE. Terry Conway. 10/27/1997. Section D, pages D10 through D12.) "I've had some very favorable offers over the past 20 years," said Anne Barczewski, an 87-year-old widow, in October 1997. "The developers keep coming and I keep saying 'No way.'" "She always wanted the farm preserved", said Dr. George Haenlein, who has known Anne Barczewski since 1951. ("Glasgow auction bids on history." Robin Brown. The News Journal, Wilmington, DE. 7/13/2003) If you would like to help protect this property from development and permanently preserve its historic, cultural, and natural resources for future generations, please contact The Friends of Historic Glasgow, ATTN: Nancy V. Willing, 5 Francis Circle, Newark, DE 19711. Telephone: (302) 366-1855.

Mikel, 12 FairField California Patwin Place 2312 [04-11-2005]
The battle on June 28, 1776, an attack by the British on the Fort at the north side of the entrance to Charleston Harbor was won by the American troops and is more properly referred to as the Battle of Sullivan's Island. As far as the Brittish were concerned, the whole endeavor was a fiasco. Some tried to walk across Breach Inlet between Long Island to the NE (present day Isle of Palms) and Sullivan's Island. Many of them drowned. This inlet is still so deadly, that if you are caught in the water today (and survive) the fines approach $1000.00 for a 1st offense. The British firepower had no real effect on the Fort, which was made of palmetto logs, as the logs are spongy, and absorbed the cannonballs easily. The British ran at least one ship aground and destroyed this ship rather than let the American army possess a British vessel less than a year old. Winning this battle was a pretty good way to set the stage for the premier July 4th, yes? Also, this battle was responsible for providing SC with many of the symbols it uses in its Great Seal. The battle is represented as well by the Palmetto Tree in the state flag. The crescent moon in the flag may have been added by Col. Moultrie, for whom the Fort is named, to represent the moons on his men's caps. there are some other stories in SC legend about that moon. Thanks for reading. M Falk

how is it out there
Greatly amused by your description of Paoli as a massacre and the hilarious reference to the British living in fear of American revenge. They were so afraid that the Light companies of the 46th Foot died their hat plumes red so the Americans should know who was there at Paoli. As for Americans viewing bayonets as barbaric utter rubbish. The Continental army along with eveyone else employed the bayonet. Paoli was a tactical embrassment for the Americans and particularly Wayne whose best claim to fame is massacring Native Americans in the decade after the close of the War. Who ever wrote this should really find out whether mel Gibson is interested in doing a sequel to the Patriot, maybe Patriot vs Godzilla.

i think this is a great site as a teacher it has great reserch areas. my class is now doing a report on the revolutionary war this site has givin me and my friends(that are teachers) all the resorces we need. but the only thing it is missing is the actual reason that the revolutionary war started that was because britain was trying to take over america that made us angry so we had a war. that lead to more britainas coming to america so that lead to more wars thruogh out ameica. then after that it lead to thomas jefferson to wrire the declaration of independence. which he sent to the british king. which lead to the day of independence.

What I discovered was that my direct ancestor was Abraham Dawes whose Quaker home was the site of Washington's headquarters when he stayed in Whitemarsh after The Battle of Germantown. I also found that his son-in-law, Robert Tuckniss fought in Robert Smith's Co. under Braddock.

Before joining the American Revolution in 1777, Casimir Pulaski struggled against oppression in his native Poland, fighting alongside his father and brothers to defend their homeland from Prussian and Imperial Russian invaders. Though his cause was ultimately overcome by those powerful forces, Pulaski was widely recognized for his courageous actions as a cavalry officer and leader of Polish forces. Benjamin Franklin lauded Pulaski as ‘‘famous throughout Europe for his bravery and conduct in defense of the liberties of his country.’’ When General Pulaski joined General George Washington’s staff, he immediately made important contributions to the war effort. He led a critical counterattack at the Battle of Brandywine that avoided a potential military disaster, earning him a commission as a Brigadier General. American leaders valued Pulaski’s experience in battle, his knowledge of military strategy, and his pioneering efforts that led to a recognition that he was the ‘‘Father of the American cavalry.’’ While leading cavalry forces in the Siege of Savannah, Pulaski was wounded, and died on October 11, 1779. Two hundred and twenty-five years ago, Casimir Pulaski joined forces with Americans to establish liberty and overcome despotism. That inspiration and solidarity is mirrored today as we engage in a war against terrorism. As part of a global coalition, which includes the government and people of Poland, we are working to ensure that our two nations remain strong friends and allies in our effort to build a safer, more peaceful world for all. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Friday, October 11, 2002, as General Pulaski Memorial Day. I encourage all Americans to commemorate this occasion with appropriate programs and activities paying tribute to Casimir Pulaski and honoring all those who defend the freedom of our great Nation. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this tenth day of October, in the year of our Lord two thousand two, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-seventh. GEORGE W. BUSH

Tj, im 13 California Fairfield [01-25-2005]
The time has come for all Americans to liberate themselves from the tyrannical rule of our government. It is the original "Declaration of Independence" that DECLARES our INDEPENDENCE AND FREEDOM from the restrictions of ANY government. We are all subject to "the common law". Not to federal or state law. We must fight to maintain our liberty. Thomas Jefferson once wrote, "When the people fear the government, that is tyranny. But when the government (and its empolyees) fear the people, that is liberty"! We must NOT back down from fear. We must question the actions of government employees and officials, even if it is the President of the United States. Especially, in fact if it is the President of these United States. It is OUR LEGAL DUTY. The US Constitution spells this out verbatim. Take a look. Freedom to the people, for that is where the power lies. anonymous
