I love being and am proud to say that I am an AMERICAN>>>
Norma J. Tague, 44-yrs /Jeffersonville, pa 19403 [06-30-2000]

Excited to find such excellent information. I come from a Texas Barry heritage. We have visited the Wexford and Phildelphia statues and have a great picture somewhere of my father, Ralph Waldo Barry, standing next to the Philadelpha statue. The description of John Barry's character are inspiring. My sympathies, too, are with the Irish struggle for freedom from British rule.

Caroleanne Danielczyk-Sanka, 60 years old, Lakewood, Ohio [06-30-2000]

I visited your country in April 2000 for the first time. History being one of my hobbies, I visited as many historical sites as possible. What impressed me is 1) how proud you are of your history, 2)how well maintained your historic sites are and 3) how well informed and enthusiastic your tour guides are. Your site will receive a lot of my armchair visits.
Pieter Fourie, 51yr old male, Pretoria, South Africa [06-30-2000]

What a terriffic IDEA..I desire to travel and see all these places but have limited funds. This is a neat wat to take a vaccation and not leave home! Thanks to you ALL citizens can know our history that many failed in school, as the teaching methods were so limited. I would love to see Native American and Black history also included. These people also contributed greatly to our Nation. We know very LITTLE about them and their cultures, which I understand place the greatest importance on the family NOT money. We need to change our values as a Nation.

I enjoyed your site! Thank-you!
Rebecca Gould, 40, Jacksonville, Florida [06-30-2000]

I treasure my freedom & agree with the statement of Patrick Henry: "Give me Liberty or give me death" It is a sad thing that sometimes even in death some are not yet free.Last nite here in Jax. Fl. some uncaring person with no respect for the living or dead, invaded the resting place of Ronny Vanzant & Steve Gaines upseting family & many friends alike & proving sometimes it is not enough to some that even the dead should have the freedom to merely rest in peace.Now,bars may have to be put around the graves to keep the disrespectful idiots at bay. Our Freebird would not want this at all..(bars) in life or death,yet since some idiots don't understand the meaning of respect Ronny & Steve will have to be moved or other measures taken. After all of the years his family,friends & fans have been able to visit him & Steve---now things will be changed...."Freedom For Our Freebird" & to the many others who in death still are not free from those who choose to do them harm........A friend of the family, Donna

great site, keep it up.
Dan CREED, 35, cheynne wy [06-30-2000]

Having served in the USMC and in the "NAM CONFLICT", I have a real appreciation for the sacrifices that our patriotic forefathers suffered on our behalf--freedom, it is a tremendous element of our lives to take for granted--it is at the core of who and what we are as a nation. Remember, there are those who are "dying to live here".
RALPH KENNISTON, age 54,Camdenton--ex-marine-nam vet-1969 [06-30-2000]

I am proud to be an American and give thanks for the priviledge of being able to pray, read what I choose, go where I choose, wear what I choose, and think as a free person. I hope that I see the freedom our forefathers wrote about become a reality to all peoples in my lifetime.

Pat Totagrande, a mom [06-30-2000]

I believe that this site is full of information and is very useful to young adults trying to discover more about there countries background. I also believe that if this was around when I was in High School it would have been quite the reference.
Timothy D. Yarrington, 21 years old and I'm also in the Navy [06-30-2000]

Getting re-informed on your American History via your web-site is an invaluable gift.
I. Alicea, 43, New York City [06-30-2000]

If I have some opportunities and some money I will be flying To States.I believe The Constitution of Independence Day of the 4th is inspired all the fellow Americans.I believe the democracy will arise if every people give their spirit and give their thoughts of being for the people, by the people and for the people.

Russell W. Denham, El Paso, TX [06-30-2000]

STANLEY L. HYMER, millville nj 08332 [06-30-2000]

i think that the declaration of independance was the most significal event that ever took place in our history. Because of that we are who we are and the many geniouses that have come from this country owe it all to the founding fathers of this country!

sarah caruthers jackson [06-30-2000]

Wow! I must thank Lifeminders for steering me to your site. I love history, US, California and the rest of the 50. Visiting Yorktown and standing in the churchyard where Nelson is buried, close to the Custom House he ran really brings home what these gentlemen put on the line to give us all the opportunities we have today. Pope's Creek where Washington lived as a boy is another Virginia site that is awe inspiring. I'm bookmarking this site, keep it up and running always. Congratulations on a job well done.
Edda Gahm, Diamond Bar, Ca , native born Californian just prior to WWII [06-30-2000]

I printed the Declaration of Independence to read to my 6 year old son, I'm thinking this may be of interest to him as he gets older. In my lineage my granny was of Cherokee decent -- to which I will find C. Columbus letter interesting. How can one discover a place that's already inhabited? I think not! That's it for my thoughts. SRG
Stephanie Green, I'm 42 yrs old, I reside in Brooklyn, NY [06-30-2000]

my name is carlton. i was just reading the declaration of independence,i think that it was good ideal for them to do something like that. although some people don't appreciate it. i like to read a lot and i just thought that i read the declaration of independence. i like american history when i was in high school and still do to this day.
CARLTON HALL [06-30-2000]

Edwin P. Dabney, Mechanicsville, Virginia [06-30-2000]

Nicely done. I'm printing this to use with my students, as I also got an e-mail from a friend that related information about what occurred to many of the signers following the signing. I'll tie that in with their names at the end of the document. If you want a copy of the e-mail I received, let me know and I'll forward it to you.

Just found your website. Look forward to exploring it more. Very glad to be able to find more information on the history of our country. I've forgotten a lot of what I learned in High School (many, many years ago).
Karen Blakeslee [06-30-2000]

With all the caos in the world today, When I raise my flag I can still believe there is a great country behind all the crazy people who would try to destroy it. I wish more people would show their support for this great country, after all it is this country that gives them the ability to be what and who they are. God Bless these United States

history can be fun !!
Robert Yates [06-29-2000]

I found the 4th stanza of The National Anthem, here. Thank you. I'd like to find The Federalist Papers if you can guide me. The winnowing away of our precious freedoms and documents that spell them out and bestow them upon us has piqued my interest, once again in them. This is a time that I heard about, but didn't believe was this imminent. Thank you.

PCM [06-28-2000]

I don't think people know enough about how the American flag should be treated. The least they could do is show some respect for it and be quiet instead of standing and talking with other people that want to show their respect for the flag and what it stands for.

The Drouin Family [06-27-2000]

Imagine going against an imperialist ruler, without the comfort of ever knowing whether they'll succeed. The American Revolution has been a brave display of the human spirit and the aspiration to the ideals of a free nation. I wish this torch of democracy will burn forever and that the struggles and sacrifices made by the fathers of the nation will be remembered.
Eric, 25, Singapore [06-25-2000]

This is a great site! All citizens should visit!
LeRoy F. Eastes, 78 yrs. Member SAR [06-25-2000]

This is the first summer school experience that I have had a class where all of the students are from another country, so this site was very helpful in showing the children pictures of Ameriecan history, as we celebrated the fourth of July.

Your guestbook entry by "Phil from Somerville" by no email contact. I'd like to contact him or anyone else who has info, as I too believe I may be related to the people mentioned in his entry. My ancestors came to Australia from England but others to Philadeplhia. One, a famous Quaker preacher married a full blooded Cherookee indian women. Keep up the good work. I look forward to visiting the east coast on my next trip to USA, my third. Its a great place!

Valerie M. Sirois [06-19-2000]

After carrying the flag in many parades it is my feeling that the children of this country are not taught how to respect the flag. Of course, their parents do not teach them. A substitute teacher for her first day in a class told me that the pledge of allegiance was announced over the loudspeaker. She looked at the class and no one stood. Shocking!

I was also involved in Carpenters' Hall, a president at one time. I am also looking for his wife Elizabeth COOPER, who may have come from Byberry Monthly Meeting, or another close by. COOPER is a name I have seen associated with the Meeting, but I have not been able to found out anything about her ancestry. I would appreciate any help. Please send me an e-mail, if you can. I am in Germany, so anything that has to do with the US I need to access through the internet. If there are books I can buy, I need to be able to do this via Amazon, as I can access that from here.

Helen Fredlein, Now live in Newcastle, Australia [05-28-2000]

What a fabulous site. It's one I'll keep returning to. I've been a Poe fan all my life. Two years ago I composed a piece of music for the classical guitar. It has five movements all under the collective heading of THE GOTHIC SUITE and the whole work is a dedication to the memory of E. A. Poe, who is one of my all-time heroes. Each movement is preceded by a paragraph, written in the style of Poe, which is read out by the performer. I gave the first performance of this piece in a recital in Cambridge, England on Haloween night! I have since performed this piece many times in concerts and it has always gone down well (and made some members of the audience feel uneasy). The first movement, Diabolo, has since been arranged for guitar quartet, and I heard a performance of this last year with 42 guitarists playing it. Sounded great! Last year, the composer, Michael Coe, arranged the first movement (Diabolo) for orchestra and it was given its' first performance in November 1999 in England. Both the solo guitar version, the quartet version and the orchestral version are now published by Lathkill Music Publishers. Anyone interested in obtaining the scores should visit: www.theguitarstudio.freeserve.co.uk or e-mail me direct on: stevemarsh@theguitarstudio.freeserve.co.uk

So thanks for helping me create some of the questions and answers. I have yet to figure out why History on the "History Channel" and on-line is so much more fun than in a classroom? (wink!)

I would like to share with you some facts about the stars n stripes that are hitherto virtually unknown, we all know that Washington gave plans to Betsy Ross for the nations flag, what is more fascinating though is that the "stars n stripes" is actually Washingtons ancient heraldic coat of arms, dating back to the first Laurence Washington 1530 AD, who was Mayor of Northampton, England. this information came to me in the way of a Certificates which explains everything, it has the Washington family tree and all the insignia of the Washington family. The certificate comes from selby abbey, England. i bought the last 25 copies, and no more were going to press, until now! I have generated some interest in these certificates which date back to 1533 AD. You can find out more at http://inspirationalimports.com Many thanks John Allen

Live on Oahu, HI. Used to travel to Philly often. Attended meetings near Rittenhouse Sq. Also many visits from Aberdeen Prov. Gd. Enjoy visiting a niece in Foxhill. Enjoyed a laugh doing a heavy rain. when it look like Ben Franklin doing his business on the City of Brotherly love. I attended meeting in Philly when the USArmy Communication and Electronic Command had their office there prior moving to NJ Many friends and enjoyable times in Pilly everyone should take time to visit your city.
Interesting situation. My friend and I left Aberdeen proving Ground to Philly one Sat. He was familiar with the city and I was not at that time 1944. Aboarded at train at Aberdeen and upon arrival in Philly. I remember three stations. I was gabbing and the train pulled out I could see my friend on the outside. OOPs Too late. When I got to North station I figured he would wait at Broad. He assumed I would wait till he got caught up to me. Many hours were spent looking for each other. Tired and upset by my stupity I got hungrey and decided in a city as large as Philly just to give the search up. I went into a dinner to eat near the corner of Broad and Market. As I was waiting for my order I looked into the mirror behind the counter. There was my friend, Harold Demich seeing me in the mirror also. Neither of us had been in that restaurant before. Hal lives outside of Pittsburgh. We have seen each other a few times since that day and we have a good laugh on that situation. What an experience and can not understand how two persons could be so lucky.

Thank you for this wonderful web site so I can share history with them. My son, Chris, needed to make a report on a city. I suggested Philadelphia, knowing its rich history but never expecting to find this to wealth to rekindle my own interest in American history. Thank you so very much.

I was born in Philadelphia and have family there still. I worked at wills Eye Hospital when young, shared picnics in Fairmount park, and shopped in downtown shops. Your site brings back many great memories. As an older white woman who is a nurse (RN), lawyer, and retired military colonel who has traveled the world and cared for many people of all colors, I agree, "Black is beautiful" as are all of God's children no matter the color of their skin. At night when I say my prayers I thank God for people He put in my life: Myrtle Shaw, a black Philly lady was my hospital roommate in 1960. She was surely a gift of God as was Jackie Hall, a white girl, Taki__, a Japanese lady, Ali Kavianian, an Iranian male, and so on. Get the point? Paula

I enjoyed visiting my old home town. You did a great job with this web site. It makes me a little homesick. I hope you continue to add things to it and would love to research family history there. My family lived in society hill area and since I am down here it is heard to get a lot of research completed. Since Philly is so much apart of the entire country history I know there would be a lot of interest. Just something to think about for the future.

Have been searching the web for information on Pennsylvania for a state report for my granddaughter, Crystie. Have sent her name in to get information about this beautiful state but so far have not got anything for her poster board. She is writing a paper on your state now. Sometimes it is hard to get very much history on online. But what I have found we have found very interesting. We have visited your state several times as my son and daughter-in-law use to live in Dover then Lititiz. We have enjoyed all of the history and shopping in your state. But it was impossible for my son to find a job so they have moved to Nevada to be closer to their children. I am very excited to start reading this history page. I also found on one of our trips there some people that had the last name as my maiden name (Detter). I hope to one day get in touch with these people to see if we are related. Again, thanks for this page. 3/16/2000

I first met my at the Betsy Ross house in 1940 during a high school band concert for Flaq Day (June 14) I returned with a Scout Troop during the Bi-Centennial celebration in 1976 to show young men a true insite to the "real history" of the birth of our Country. We visited many of the historic buildings of the area and attended a church service at "Christ Church". As a former Philadelphian I only wish that real history of our country as I learned it as a young man could be taught in today's schools instead of the distorted stories they are taught today. Great page; keep up the good work. Zeke

An English friend tells me Ben Franklin used to visit he house near London and sit in the tea house and read. Moreover I have found two houses where he visited in Saint-Germain-en-Laye in France. The houses are still standing. Alof the official records were destroyed inthe Revolution, but local lorehas him visiting his great-nephew, Jonathan Williams and his wife Mariamne Alexander Williams there. He also stoped there on his way to Calais in 1785 when he was en route to America, to say good-bye.

What section of the city he researched and lived. What was the economical make up surrounding the area DuBois researched. Anything, something about W.E.B. DuBois would only add to this virtual tour of Philadelphia. Thank you for even considering my thoughts on a very sad void on Philadelphia history.

I am trying to locate someone in the Clayton Lee Wood family 1910-1991 Ohio. I believe one of his parents was from Ohio and one from Pennsylvania. I know he had a sister living in Philadelphia in the late 70's. Thank

Jacob Dehaven is one of my ancestors. My grandmother Irene Aman (now known as Irene Rua) has all the documents of the claim that Jacob had lent Washington that large sum of money. We have asked for that money from Carter, Reagan, Bush and now Clinton considering we are direct descentents.

Just watched an A&E Special where they had George Washington taking God's name in vain and uttering crude comments to his men. Although the show was well-done I resent the fact that in conversation they showed him falsely. Your site provided me with 'Washington's Order Against Profanity' that I was looking for and also many other small facts that convince me of his true greatness in history. I will visit this site often. Thank you!
