I visited Philly on business on Dec 3-5. I only got to do a 10 minute "fly by" of Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. I learned a lot in that 10 minutes from the tour guide there. I went away feeling Patriotic and wanting to know more about the history of Philly and the beginning of our Nation. It was very interesting to be there and see it all. Thanks.

khambrel evans, 11years old [12-05-2000]

Isn't it wonderful to live in this great country? I didn't know your site existed until I read a letter in a local newspaper where someone responded quite fiercely to another writer who'd said that America was founded in order to glorify God and advance Christianity, etc., etc. The respondent mentioned this site as an excellent place to learn about the REAL history of the U.S., and also print out the Documents of Freedom, both of which I have just done -- and enjoyed immensely. Now I'm going to go replay my VCR tape of the U.S. Supreme Court as it decides the fate of our two presidential candidates -- or not. Maybe with the printout I can figure out at least some of what they're talking about. Thank you for an excellent website!

My 6th great grandfather served in the 8th Va. Reg. under Bowman. This site is great for those who gather fanily history. I have been chasing my famiily history for about 17 years and find it never ending and most satisfying. When I served in the military I was stationed in Philadelphia before going to Korea and had the oppurtunity to see the historic sites surrounding the area. Thanks for a great site!

Jesse Cornblatt, Alaska [11-27-2000]

What power the internet has! I came upon a picture of some of my ancestors standing in front of a beautiful arch. It was taken in the early 1900's and I wondered what place was so important that they traveled from Central New York to see it. I could barely make out the words on the top of the arch. I put them in a search engine and up popped this site. The letter that Washington wrote was there and the answer to my question was there. Thank you to the people who researched this information and cared enough about history to share it with me. God bless America! Natalie Gibson

GERTRUDE CSEPLO, waldorf md [11-27-2000]

I enjoy the site very much.
Allan C Young [11-27-2000]

Interesting site. Hoped to find info on the Governor's Mill, built in Northern Liberties on the Cohocksink Creek in the 1700. After the mill was purchased by Thomas Masters in 1714, his wife Sybilla was granted the first American patent for a health product called "Tuscarora Rice" which was made of Indian corn. This was a significant event in early Philadelphia history, and deserves a mention in the Northern Liberties area. Any information you may have on the mill would be very helpful to a preservation group that wishes to "rediscover" the site and work toward a recreation of the mill for interpretive purposes. Thank you.

I love the checkers game!He is pretty good for a dead guy to be playing! People in my computer class were beating him but I didn't have even a chance of beating him! He was beating me in the beginning! It makes me so mad because he's a dead guy and he plays better checkers then I play checkers! That's cool though! I love the game and thanks for putting it on here for people to enjoy! I think I learned stuff off of these crossword puzzles also. This is very educational! I really love this part of the webpage!

Having just read the bio of Stephen Girard, I would like to thank the preparer; however, the panegyric tenor of the material overlooks some obvious character flaws and has a feel of "boot licking" that makes the reader occasionally think "get real."

I have not lived in Philadelphia in 50 years but I have always considered it my "Home Town"! I lived in the Overbrook section and attended St Callistus School at 65th & Lebanon Ave and West Catholic Girls HS. I fell in love with Philadelphia at an early age and even after I no longer lived in the city, I used to take foreign and out of state visitors for a walking tour. Philadelphia will always be my HOME!!

Was verifying some information about the Wisters. John Wister completed Grumblethorpe in 1744. So far I have copied "Bethlehem Pike", but I am certain I will return to browse. It is interesting to me that as you learn more about your original search (The Wisters) that more information appears that is related but tangential.

Question on the word Tinicum? the only thing that i can find is that it comes from the delaware indians language and it means "first finders' or to that order. swedes came to this area in the early 1600's and settled on or near that is now known as tinicum island. there settlement was called "new sweden"

I'd love to be able to include a retelling of the incident of April 15th, 1847, when two elephants drowned in the Delaware River. My understanding is that one description of the incident was published in Randolph Walther's "Happenings In Ye Olde Philadelphia 1680-1900," but I'm unable to locate that book locally. Could anybody provide the details of that incident? I'll appreciate any assistance you would care to offer. With best wishes, RS

I came upon your site while researching my family's past. My ancestor, Johann, came to Philadelphia in 1753 aboard the ship "Halifax". He is said to have served as an ensign in Capt. Bower's Brigade during the Revolutionary War. Two of his daughters are said to have warned Gen'l Washington of an impending British attack in 1777. I was hoping to find something about Capt. Bower's Brigade or about the daughters' participation. While I haven't found the specific information for which I am searching, I was intrigued by the battle sequences of the Philadelphia Campaign. Well done! Oh, and if anyone can help me fill in the gaps about Johann and his daughters, please e-mail me. Thanks.

We Americans with so much freedom are forgetting how we earn it or how much it costs, these days it's easy to accept that it is easy and we are paying the price. Sites like this should pop in all computers to remind everyone why we have what we have today. I am a proud American by choice and not by accident. I choose to be one and was not born one.

Dear Sirs; I enjoyed veiwing some of the historic church. I love history and am quite interested in the social development of our great country. I often view historic churches and cemetaries as well,because give me that certain perspective and appreciation for applauding the wonderful and mighty handiwork of our creator. I applaud your sense of dedication in keeping watch over the historical artifacts; and I applaud your efforts in continuing to tell the story of our human struggle toward the goal of freedom and in the building of an advanced civilization. Please continue in your efforts. You may also consider expanding the web page to include more pictures; with more historic artifacts if they become available. One possible source is to keep in touch with all former congregates/members. Ask those members or their decendants for old pictures or church memorophilia. I helped my father's church add to its historic collection by donating old pictures and articles that my family preserved. When he died five years ago, I learned a lot about our church and the role it played in our community, by going through many old records and pictures that were preserved. I'm sure you may already be aware of this method but I'm just sending a reminder. Please continue and may God bless you in your efforts!!!!!!!!! Sincerely Yours in Christ, Clarence W. Garner August 4, 2000

I recieved a gift from a friend purchased at The United Mint at the mall east phil, penn.19106 It came in a tan colored bag and when I read it,I was discussed, the address is 151 N.Independance Mall East. Check your spelling of Independence, I thought and have been teaching that it is spelt with all e's no a's. This is terrible. I am sure that this error has been noticed by other. Please correct your gift bags. If I am mistaken and this is how you spell Inpendence, then I am truly sorry. Marina Cegiel

It is the age of the internet and being able to speak to others in other lands that make you look into the past of these our Great United States and gain the respect for those who have gone before and gone through so much to allow us our freedoms. God Bless these our United States and I will pray every day for our politicians to gain back the respect of those who have gone before them. May God guide the hearts of all men and women leading our Country so that we may stand tall again.

Enjoyed your site. Once my parents and I took an all-day bus tour of Philly. We were sitting in the back and the tour guide asked if anyone spoke french. Noticing an arch that resembled l'Arche de Triomphe, I raised my hand expecting a simple question. He said - Oh good! Because we have 2 people up here who dont speak any English. They're on their way back to you. - Panicked, I desparately called on my High School french. Well we spent the whole tour with these new people (Max and Helen). We ate lunch together and after the tour was over, we had a long dinner together. I spoke more French that day than ever before. Imagine me being a translator - having never before heard the tour information myself! It was a day I'll never forget. Loved your city. Glad so much of it is preserved for our history. Loved the Liberty Bell and Ben Franklin's house. The Rangers were also a GREAT wealth of knowledge. My highest compliments to them all. Loved Penn's landing too. May the city of brotherly love continue in the character of its name.

I think this is a great idea! No better way to continue to appreciated your freedom than to remember how difficult it was to attain.

It is our duty to teach our children; generation the heritage, that is slipping away, In the name of progress. Let us never forget our fore fathers sacrifice for our freedoms. God Bless.
BERKLEY JONES, albuquerque nm [07-04-2000]

I rmember in my school days of reciting the pledge of allegiance, raising and lowering of the flag and folding the flag. I wonder if the schools still teach this. Our regional newspaper the Decatur Herald and Review today has information about the flag and flag etiquette and several web sites including this one. Happy Independence Day to all of you. God Bless America.

I visited your website with my eight year old son to learn about flag etiquette. In a age when many of the history courses taught in our schools are watered down. It is nice to have a weblite like this one. Thanks

After seeing the movie "The Patriot" today and then visiting your site, I'm reminded how truly wonderful our country is and how many people have given their all over the years to keep it free. It is our job as citizens of this great land to teach our children the proper respect they should have for America and the privilege of living here!

Eloise Wolfe, Ozark, Missouri [07-03-2000]

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. It's about time that someone stepped out of the pack and promoted those values upon which this country was founded. For too long, we as Americans have stood by as corrupt individuals have schemed and contrived to take away those very freedoms that men and women of this great nation have fought and died for. Once again, I say "Thank you."

Virginia, Ferndale, Washington 98248 [07-03-2000]

Our city has a huge celebration every year, beginning in June, commemorating the birth of our nation and the freedoms that we enjoy. It's important that we teach our children and grandchildren about the sacrifices that thousands have made over the years to establish and preserve liberty. Let us not lose sight of those values on which this great country was formed. This web site is a great tool. Thanks.

Can any one give me information on E.Huntington the engraver of my copy? Was he related to Samuel Huntington,one of the signers from onnecticut? My research shows he was an engraver of text books and Maps.I would like to exchange notes.

My soul sparkled a little more on this date for having read some of the articles posted through your website. It has been many years since I have actually read the Constitution and other historic documents. Even with all turmoil and lack of respect and dishonesty being exhibited in the United States Government, it is pleasing to know that what the original documents really meant, and the spirit in which they were written, still live on...and maybe someday if we have an honorable presidency and honest lawmakers, we will be able to return to that land that our forefathers saw!
Ken Curtis, Senior citizen - Pocatello, Idaho [07-02-2000]

Rev. Robyn S. Young, minister, Killeen, Tx [07-02-2000]

Grew up in Sandusky County, Ohio, the home of the Presidetial Center of Rutherford B. Hayes. On display there are earrings. The claim is that they are carved from the yoke of the Liberty Bell when the yoke was changed out during his Presidential term. The earrings were sold as souvenirs. Can you verify this?

Very good site. I hope schools and libraries put it in their "Favorites" list or bookmark it. I would encourage everyone, not just students, to look at it. There is an appalling lack of knowledge about the history of our country. So much of what young (and some not-so-young) people think they know is based, not on true history, but on "popular" history; i.e., movies, TV. You can't know where you're going until you know where you've been.
