I live in Monroe Twp,Conneaut,Oh. In our Kelloggsville Cemetary we have a monument to a Officer whom encamped at Valley Forge with Gen. Washington. I believe his name was Capt. Greene. We are going to Boston this summer for a Revolutionary War trip, and to Gettysburg also for a cival war re-enactment 7/2/05. This is a history vacation for the family. We are very excited about early American History. Maybe someday, Valley Forge will be on our list as will the Liberty Bell, etc. Thank you for your site. GOD Bless and Keep America safe and free.

Excellently put together web site! My interest in Valley Forge came from a "Dear America" series book entitled,"The Winter Of Red Snow. The Revolutionary War Diary of Abigail Jane Stewart." It is written by Kristiana Gregory. It makes you feel like you are there! My thanks go to those who worked on this web site. Well Done!

Hello, I've been searching for a copy of the painting by W Trego called "Marching to Valley Forge". How can I obtain a print of this fantastic painting?
David Parkerson, Ft Wayne, Indiana [06-13-2005]

From Old families of Randolph Co., MO., by Howard Wright Marshall p 401 Elijah Williams, written by Leah Williams Lowe (These Williams were connected with the Carters and Harris families of Fairfax Co., Virginia some of whom came to Moberly, MO via TN. and KY after 1800) ... "Captain Jack (Williams- Elijah Williams father) enlisted with General Washington early in the Revolutionary War and served throughout the conflict. My Great Grandmother told of his trials and suffering at Valley Forge:" "They said they could have tracked us for miles by the bloody tracks on the snow and frozen ground from their shoeless and frozen feet. He said this was around the New Year, and that they sometimes were without food for three or four days at a time..." 'Major' Elijah Williams d. Moberly, MO 1-31-1887 at 90 years, one month and two days.

Your page on Alexander Hamilton falsely accuses him of spying for the British, a false rumor spread by his political enemies. See Ron Chernow's new (2004) biography of Hamilton for a correct explanation of events.

My great-great-great-great grandfather was Owen DeWees, son of Cornelius DeWees. I have been told that Owen was the brother of Colonel William DeWees who, along with a gentleman named Potts, were the owners of the forge at Valley Forge during the Revolutionay War. I began to trace the family heritage on the web through a site that published the LaMunyan book. Unfortunately, the site has been removed from the web. Can you provide me with any other sites, sources, references, or suggestions that would help me trace my family history? Thank you.

I think people from anywere but Iowa are cooooollll! Because I live in Iowa. Hi my name is jeff and I always wonder If there would still be great American heoros in history if there was no war. Like all the movies that are made about war and all the history of it that kids learn in school every day and all the people that were lost in battle or became heoros by doing things like killed some one really bad. I meen would we be happy and peaceful and nothing wrong? I think it would be caos! Well on the upside, anger managment shrinks would be realy rich!

How and when did Benedick Arnold the traitor die?
anonymous [03-07-2005]

Fascinating write-up about Benedict Arnold. I remember being taught he was a traitor, and only that, in grade school but there was so much more to him than that. His whole life of events made him what he was and I never knew any of this. I looked him up as a trivia question for our newsletter for our pharmacy department.

FYI: Ft. Ticonderoga: Plans to capture the Fort were drawn up in Easton's Tavern, Pittsfield, Mass. Col. James Easton was commanding officer of Pittsfield, Mass.Militia. A representative of Continental Congress came to Pittsfield and ordered Col. James Easton to assign his local militia to capture Ft. Ticonderoga. Col. Easton informed him his men were poor farmers, only used to fighting in the flatlands and recommended Ethan Allen and his Green Mt. Boys be approached with the proposition to prepare to capture the Fort. How did Col. James Easton know about Ethan Allen, a civilian mountaineer? Fact: Civilian Ethan Allen and Col. James Easton had grown up together in Litchfield, Conn. and were friends since childhood. Fact: Col. James Easton, a great judge of character, was a man ahead of his time inasmuchas he never liked or trusted Col. Benedict Arnold and was a thorn in Benedict Arnold's side long before the rest of the world had a clue Arnold left a lot to be desired... Fact: Col. James Easton, (knowing Ethan Allen was a civilian, and taking it for granted Benedict Arnold would attempt to take over military operations when he heard about the plans being formulated in Easton's Tavern) thought ahead and made secret arrangments through Continental Congress representative to secure a field-grade-commission for Ethan Allen... to ensure Allen would be assured military command of the operation and his Green Mountain Boys during the attack on the Fort. Once Ethan Allen's commission came through, Col. James Easton stepped down as Commanding Officer and became second-in- command of the Ft. Ticonderoga takeover. (Something not mentioned in your historical account which states "Arnold had to concede to accompanying Allen"...). Fact: Benedict Arnold was ordered not to enter the Fort by CO Ethan Allen on advise from Col. James Easton. According to our research, Benedict Arnold did not come through to gates and had to remain outside the fort. Fact: Col. James Easton's was the only blood drawn at the takeover of Fort Ticonderoga and there is a bronze plaque commemorating this historical incident at the Main Gate of the Fort. Col.James Easton entered the Fort alongside Ethan Allen and was challenged by a sentry who jabbed him in the shoulder with a bayonette. Col. Easton warded off the attack by hitting the sentry over the head with his gun butt. (Easton was not seriously wounded). Col. James Easton does not get the historical recognition he deserves. Why is that? Col. James Easton was in command until Allen's commission came through and then became second in command.

Why do people lie about things and make people feel like our founding fathers were these god loving people? I am in a fantastic history class at Macomb Community College and I am learning that for one George Washington was in fact a Deist. There is absolutely no evidencew whatsoever that he was devoted to his religion. Back then church was just a social exercise. They went to church to visit with people. Thomas Jefferson,an Athiest! Didn't believe in God at all! I am just curious why when I was a little girl and other children today learn that they were religous people? Don't get me wrong, I appreciate their contributions, but why aren't we ever just given the straight forwardness that we deserve when it comes to any politics?????

Dear Sir/Madam, Perhapse I have some information that might be of interest to you. I have been researching a house here in Cheltenham for two years now. This house dates to 1682, and is one of the oldest in the township. It was originally built by Everard Bolton, one of our Founding Fathers. Everard Bolton was Martha Bolton's Great Grandfather. The house was passed down through the family for generations and infact Martha was born in this house.If you would like more information on the Bolton homestead, or Martha's family,I have a web site: Heidelberg-kerlinfarm.org Enjoy!

Your history of Hamilton is somewhat weak and disingenious. You may consider to re-revise what is written about him. It paints his picture poorly.
