I lived in Philadelphia from 1974-1994. The Poe House on 7th Street, Fairmount Avenue near the Art Museum (Poe lived where that triangular park is now), the Merchant's Exchange, are all fresh in my mind. WXPN-FM broadcast my "Edgar Allan Poe in Philadelphia" in 1989. I feel fortunate to have lived in the city where Poe wrote is best work.
Dennis Bass, Aventura, Florida [12-20-1999]

This is a very well put together web-site. I visited Philadelphia last May and saw a very meaningful statue, entitled "The Signer" but I forgot who the statue is of. Does anybody know? Any other information would be appreciated too. Thanks

Why is it that a site asking me to cherish freedom of thought and to protect our National Treasures, offers me only the opportunity to express one form of thought? You allow only the opportunity to voice opposition to admission fees to our National Parks. We are a society screaming for lower taxes without offering other alternatives. Why not ask for help, to creatively find solutions, to protect and preserve these Treasures. In fact,what other solutions do you offer? Respectfully, James J. Vargo

The idea of the Philadelphia history home page is terrific, i enjoyed it. And as long as I am here I would like to thank Jeffrey Roy of the Atwater Kent museum for having been so helpful to us when we were in Philadelphia. As a matter of fact I would not have discovered this site if it weren´t for him. I was trying to send an e-mail to the Atwater museum and looking for it was how I came to this wonderful home page.

The only pages I have thus far visited are the ones about Stephen Girard. I will be back as time allows to view the other topics. I am most interested in who wrote the information about Stephen Girard. I would like to contact that individual regarding Stephen Girard's mistress, Sally Bickham. Why? I am researching Bickhams in Philadelphia, have quite a bit of information now, would like to learn more about Sally Bickham. Would like to hear back from someone if possible for the purpose of further correspondence about Sally Bickham.
Carlene Morrison, Genealogy research for Bickham surname [11-23-1999]

Great site! Was working in genealogy and am delighted to learn something about the city of our Harres family. Gebhard and Maria Grace Harres lived on lower Chestnut Street in the early 1800's in a 3-story home with basement windows level with the ground (where he had his office). A window opened on his enclosed garden at the rear. They were residents for over 40 years but he died in Atchison, KS, while visiting his daughters. His wife took him back to be buried at Laurel Hill and she is buried next to him. Again, thank you so much for the great tour. It really made early history interesting.

Homepage of Greater Instutional A.M.E. Church provided needed information about African Methodism, because they have been in existence for 197 year and many people know little about the role African Christian played in America. Thank God for the Webpage that gave Greater Instutional A.M.E. church a place to record Bethel A.M.E history and their own experiences to form and build a church in Chicago to strengthen their community in the year 2000.

I live a stone's throw from William Penn's country home @ Pennsbury Manor. As a child, I had the privilage of a personal, family friendship with the curator. Many people who live near by have never even visited this wonder recreation. Isn't it a sad commentary that we will travel hours to a mall, but miss the hometown treasures of history?

While I think this site is excellent, there are some things that I have been going mad trying to find. For example: the Daughters of Liberty. I can't find anything about them anywhere. Are the Daughters of Liberty so obsolete that this great big lump of an Internet can't at least manage to document them? And on a site like this - "ushistory.org" - I'd have thought that there could at least be more information here than anywhere else. Some other ppl I'm trying to find: Daughters of Liberty, Sally Huston, Edenton, NC, King George III, and Paul Revere. If *anyone* has *any* information on *any* of these topics, I beg of you to email me at tobiasrulz@mailcity.com. *Please*: I can't find it here - how can I find it anywhere else?

I am rewriting my book on the Cape May Lighthouse and came across a reference to the Philadelphia Aurora, July 1801 edition that has an advertisement for a vacation spot in Cape May that is in sight of the lighthouse. Since we have no knowledge of a lighthouse in Cape May at that time (1801), this is of extreme interest. Do you know where I can find a copy of that issue? Any help would be appreciated. Your site is great.

I thoroughly enjoy visiting your site. History has always had a deep fascination for me. I recently read through your historical accounts about Thaddeus Kosciuszko and the American Revolution. This was of particular interest to me as I was searching for information about a coin that has been in my family for some time. The coin is a Siechnowiez Ducat. I believe it is bronze with a diameter of 1 3/8" and around 3/16" thick. On the front is a bust relief ot Thaddeus Kosciuszko with his name around the border. On the back are the dates of his birth and death along with some other writing, all in Latin. I would really appreciate any help with finding out more information about this coin, its history as well as its value. Thanks

Museum of Art building along the Skulkill Expressway. My grandfather helped to build this building. His name is in the time capsule in the cornerstone of the building.

I've found your magazine most interesting this last year, since getting involved in my family genealogy. Some family has been in the US since the 6th voyage of the Mayflower & articles of the Revolutionary War period have made the genealogy more complete. I would find articles detailing the Irish migrations of interest, as that side of the family has been the most difficult to trace. Some of them were loggers in Ontario,Michigan & Minnesota, as well as railroad workers for the Candadian RR & later the Northern Pacific in the late 1800's[1865 & later]. One even worked on railroads in Siberia[Trans-Siberia RR] & the railroad used in the building of the Panama Canal. Keep up the good work in your magazine.

We visited your sight as a virtual field trip Advanced Placement United States Hostory class. Most of us who are in the class are interested in history, so I am sure that we all enjoyed the sight. Our class is Mr. Ken Wickerhams 2nd block AP US History class from North Branch High Schol in North Branch, Michigan. Thankfully, the web sight saved us quite a long road trip!!!

You have a very good website . . . but I find a glaring absence in Stephen Girard's masonic connections. He was held in the highest regard by the Pennsylvania Grand Lodge and they played a very large role in his funeral. If you check with the Grand Lodge on Broad St., I am sure they will be happy to enlighten you. I happen to have been an adopted son of Stephen Girard and I am certainly thankful for this man's charitable contributions to his fellow man. I am also a member of the masonic fraternity.

I visited your site for the first time and enjoyed it very much. My relatives served as Hessians during the revolution/war of independence. One was Grenadier Christoph Hitzeroth of the von Linsing(en)Batt. who fought at Brandywine, Germantown, Fort Mercer/Red Bank and was part of the British force which occupied Philadelphia. He survived the war and went back to Germany. Ironically, 80 years later, a direct relative of his with the same name came to America to make his home in Philadelphia where he died n 1907- a citizen! I'm doing research on my relative who served in the war and your site is a great help. Thanks. Randy W.-Hitzroth rwhitz@interlog.com

The Betsey Ross web sight has been most helpful to our Miniature Club, The Morris Mini Makers (of Morris County, New Jersey). We have created a 1" scale model of the Betsey Ross House and although we did view the house in person when we began the project we have relied on information and photos from the internet to verify many of the details. However, one detail we have not been able to duplicate is the fire mark or plaque mounted on the exterior of the building. We missed seeing it when we first toured the house and it is not clear in any of the photos. We understand that there is quite a story about the meaning of the fire marks. We would like to know more about them. Where can we find that information ?

Hello-- I'm directing a musical production of "A Christmas Carol". I'm introducing a town crier during parts of the show and would like your help on the content of the information he will cryout. I'd like him to relate the following information and any thing else you may feel appropriate. Can you help me, please? 1. It's Christmas Eve 2. It's 5:00PM (1700?) or would it be given in ships bells? 3. Maybe some news of the day (i.e. a ship into port or a reception visited by the queen?) So glad to have found your site, it's very interesting. I'm going to give it to all my American History loving friends!

I have a distant relative I am trying to contact.I found his name via the Family Tree Maker but then found out that the website tristate.pgh.net was no longer in service, due to lack of funding of all things!!! I could go on and on about it being a shame that for some reason some people aren't taking pride in their ancestors! Anyway, my distant cousin,uncle or whoever he is, goes by the name Bill Vidonic.

After living in Philly for five years -- and living within 30 minutes of the city for 19 years -- I have moved to Columbus, Ohio. My husband (a soon-to-be PhD student here at OSU) and I have been in ohio less than a week, and I am homesick! Philly will always be my home, no matter where I live. I was hoping to order a large photograph of the skyline or some other scene to hang up in our new apartment, but i see your gift shop is down. I really like your site; I'm sure i'll visit often since I can't be there physically.
Jen Lawson-Tincani [08-19-1999]

I found your site to be most impressive. I have been doing a search for information on The American Revolution. 8000 property owners in this area are in danger of losing their homes and their communities because the Justice Department and Bureau of Indian Affairs has decided to side with the Cayuga (Iroquios) in an 18 year old land claim suit against this area. They claim they were cheated -- even though the reason they were forced from this land is that they had sided with the British during the Revolution (and by the way in the War of 1812). I believe we have moved from celebrating these great men of the Revolution to interpreting their actions as monstrous. This is the culmination of that kind of thinking. To oppose these indian land claims is to invite the label of racism. The reinterpretation of our history by some has made victims of working class people who have no defense. The saddest part of this is that no one else seems to care about it.

I am interested in "what it was like going to school in the 1850s." How many grades were there in the average school/class? What was considered "prep" school, as opposed to public school? Was school in session three, six or nine months a year? Were some, or most classes and schools co-ed? Query? If you were graduated after 6-8 or 10 (?) years, did you get a diploma or a certificate if you wanted to get other degrees or to continue your education? THANK YOU for helping.

Florence Gandy, Penna [08-10-1999]

I join my classmate Bob Fark's earlier comments praising the work you've done in creating this site, especially the narrative outlining the vital role in the nation's history played by our benefactor Stephen Girard. It's amazing that while we honor singers and actresses and cartoon characters on US postage stamps, the US Postal Service's policymakers apparently consider Mr. Girard to be politically incorrect in Year 2000, the 250th anniversary of his birth. (What other possible reason could there be for the UPS' ongoing rejection of efforts to honor this genuine patriot?) If anyone has any influence with the powers that be in Washington, please use it after you've taken a few minutes to read about Mr. Girard's nearly six decades of patriotism & benevolence to our fledgling nation. And thank you for your support.
Bob Fisher, Mechanicsburg, PA, Girard College, Class of 1959 [08-10-1999]

I had the great pleasure of visiting Independence Hall on July 16th 1999. What a great experience. I wanted to write and make comment on the wonderful tour guide I had. His name was Larry. He made the tour very enjoyable and very interesting. I feel the tour was hightened by his excitement about the information. Just having the opportunity to visit Independence Hall was wonderful, but having a guide who was so knowledgeable made it even better. Thank you for the great time. Tricia M. Casten

Such memories I have as I grew up in Philly and this site brings them all flooding back. Left Philly and moved to Arizona in 1970 but now livivg in New Mexico. Children are all grown and have no memories of Philly but this will help me to tell and show my granddaughter all about the historic and wonderful city where I was born and raised. Makes me sad to leave family and friends behind and I do miss the sights of the city and the fun places we would visit on class trips. We not only studied "History" we were Blessed to have it surround us. Thank you for the wonderful site that I can visit at "any" given time to just sit and reminisce.
Kathleen (Norris) Kelly, Born in 1943 in the city of Philadelphia [08-08-1999]

In reading through the site, I ran across these words: "William Penn considered his colony Pennsylvania and its primary city Philadelphia a "holy experiment" in religious coexistence. The disdained and persecuted faiths of the Old World -- Quakers, Catholics, Jews -- as well as other religions, would find longed-for religious tolerance and personal freedom in his City of Brotherly Love. These rights were articulated in Penn's radical Charter of Privileges drawn up in 1701 (see Welcome Park, in this Virtual Tour). Fifty years later, in 1752, the Liberty Bell was cast in England by Whitechapel Foundry to commemorate Penn's remarkable Charter." What a shame it seems to me that our country has lost sight of these powerful founding principles -- religious tolerance and peaceful coexistence. I read the newspapers and feel surrounded by people trying to push their own particular "brand" of religion onto the entire society, while telling "the rest of us" that our beliefs are the cause of all of society's ills. I hear the "television preachers" talk about how there is only "one right way" to worship, and how everything that is wrong in our society today is because we've "gotten away from" the beliefs on which this great country was founded. And yet, here it is. The timely reminder: The belief on which this colony, the birthplace of the Constitution of the United States, was founded -- tolerance and peace. Respect for ways of belief other than those that you, personally, believe in. Tolerance for the "disdained and persecuted" faiths in the world, indeed, for ALL faiths was a cornerstone of this colony. If we could only get back to this remarkable focus and remember what the Liberty Bell commemorates -- freedom, dignity, and respect for each other. Wouldn't it be amazing to get back to that "holy experiment"? Sign me up!

What a wonderful site! I have an unexpected day off and wanted to plan an unusual day for my two daughters (7 and 10). Your site is full of info I've never known about places I've visited many times, and also pointed out places I've never been aware of. I can't wait to go exploring. You've made "my town" new again and helped me to share the enthusiasm with the next generation. Thanks!
Karen Goeller, Doylestown, PA [08-04-1999]

There was "stuff" here that was not taught in our schools. The information on the Christian movement is facinating. I didn't know William Braford had any dealings with Philladelphia. What a treat.
Janice Kyler, 37, Heritage Studies teacher, Folsom, NJ [08-01-1999]

What a nice, neat site. I grew up in Germantown, 5300 block of Wakefield St. Left in 1960. I was looking for infomation on Bartram Gardens. I'll be there later this month. Thank you so much!

Being a beneficiary of Stephen Girard's benevolence (Class of 1959), I enjoyed the Girard page of your site. I saw in the comments that someone was happy to see that a stamp was being issued for someone. Why does the Stamp Board continually reject Mr. Girard for a stamp?

I grew up in the 'burbs of Philly - am bringing my 11 year old son to visit family & friends this summer and to see the "turf" where mom hung out.

The virtual tour is very easy to cruise through. Thanks for the trip, see you soon!

I recently read "The Road to Guilford Court House" Until this book I had no idea of the history of the Southern part of the war. I've found books on Francis Marion, Daniel Morgan, Pickens either out of print or non-existent -- why? I do buy out-of-print books and each one has come from a library -- why?
David L. Jacocks, Charlotte, NC [07-19-1999]

Wow what a terrific sight! This isn't only good for deciding what to see next in Philadelphia, but it also tells a lot about our history. I've added it to our "Favorites" list. This is the place where my children can learn the true history of our country, with all the good stuff (Godly stuff, that is) left in. I can't wait until our visit this Saturday!

Since prayer and the Bible are now prohibited in schools, our children are not being instructed in our true Christian heritage nor about our forefathers faith and sacrifices to bring this nation into being. We must be in constant prayer for our nation. It is being dissolved from within.

On this Independence Day I would like to ask for your one other patriot who fought and was wounded to defend the freedoms we enjoy. My father, Virgil Cleveland, served in the US Marines during World War II in the Pacific theatre. He was part of the forces at Guadalcanal. I know that he and the others who served so valiantly there and then asked for no recognition and seldom would even discuss their experiences went through a horrible experience. They did so because they believed in the freedoms they were fighting for. On June 30th, Dad passed away and has now joined so many of those he fought alongside. On Monday, July 5th, I and my family will attend his funeral, mourn his death, celebrate his life, and say goodbye. Part of the service will include honoring him for his military service, an honor richly deserved. I ask that you would also take a moment on this Independence Day to say a prayer for him and all of the others who have fought for our freedom. Thank you all and God Bless.

Independence Day: In our haste to celebrate, let's not forget why...

Every year we seem to get the traditional holiday message and standard safety brief. Well, the importance of vehicular and recreational safety cannot be over stressed during this time. However, pasted below is a different Independence Day holiday message. Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence? Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons in the Revolutionary Army, another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War. They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. What kind of men were they? Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means and well educated. But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags. Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward. Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton. At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt. Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months. John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks later he died from exhaustion and a broken heart. Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates. Such were the stories and sacrifices of the American Revolution. These were not wild eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more. Standing tall, straight, and unwavering, they pledged: "For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor." They gave you and me a free and independent America. Some of us take these liberties so much for granted ... We shouldn't.

Hopefully, time will grant us to take a vacation there to spend more time to explore. Are there sites similar to this on other states/cities?

I teach American History to fifth graders in Chula Vista, California. I am interested in any site that has information about American History which I use to enhance my lessons. Also, I direct my students to such sites to do research.

I was so excited to see the name Shiffler come up in the history of St. Augustines. I know that George Shiffler has to be a relation to me , as my father and grand father were born and raised in Kensington. Please tell me where I can get more info on George Shiffler. I have heard that he was one of the original Philadelphia Fire Fighters. Thanks much!! This is a great historic site.

As an American history teacher, I was pleased to find such an informative and creative presentation.
Michael Trevathan, 51, McMinnville, TN [07-02-1999]

I have traveled over Pennsylvania many times.Over a period of 35 years. I enjoyed the mountains and had thought about hiking the appalachian Trail but age caught up with me before I could hike the AT. I like Philadelphia much. I enjoyed the historical places and city hall. The state troopers arn't very friendly even if you say on your license plate that "you have a friend in Pennsylvania." It certainly isn't the highway patrol.
James M. Atkins,Jr., Winston-Salem, NC 27103 [07-02-1999]

Just visited your site for the first time. I think it's one of the best. Keep up the good work. Thank you.
Albert B. Villarino [07-02-1999]

Your web site has been thourgly thought of and quite informative. Only suggestion I would like to add is perhaps a city map of the historical area dipicting the to 10 - 15 sites visited by the public.

My family and I are coming to Penn. next week. I have wanted a list of things to show them so we can decide when,where and what to see. This has opened many doors. One is into revolutionary war stuff, another into Franklin, etc. Promises to be a great time with a solid idea of where to go. Thanks!!!
