I was born and raised in Philadelphia. It is a one of a kind city in perhaps the most beautiful state. My home was 1/2 block from Fairmount Park where I would spend most of my days exploring and playing. What a beautiful place to grow up in. I have visited most historic places in and around Philadelphia.

Just found your site while searching Yahoo! and am fascinated by it, especially being a native Pennsylvanian. I am a U.S. history buff (especially of the events that led to the revolution through the creation of the U.S. Constitution. I often refer to Catherine Drinker Bowen's "Miracle at Philadelphia" to put the events of those days in proper perspective. I could go on and on, but I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your page. Gary Spiegel Lewisburg PA 17837

Now that I live near these historic sites, I'm very sorry that I didn't pay more attention during my history classes in school. Now I'd like to know more about the historic battles that were fought in this area. Like the Paoli Massacre, life at Valley Forge for Gen. Washington's troops, The Battle of Brandywine, etc. I will pay attention this time. Danny

Michaela Humphrey , 17 years old, Anderson, SC [08-22-2001]
I have thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to your site and look forward to many more. My father was from Philadelphia and I lived there awhile during the 1950's. Many of the sites mentioned bring back wonderful memories. Now I need to find out some information about my father's family who lived in the city. My father was born in 1892 and both his parents came from Ireland. His father, Joseph James Cannon, was a pub owner and had a pub at Second and Lombard. He was a friend of Jack Johnson, the prizefighter, who used to train behind my grandfather's pub. I know that I must go back to Philadelphia to learn more about my roots, and am looking forward to it. Please contact me if you are interested. Christine

my e-mail is fake This is good. I haven't looked deeply into this website, but I hope to find some facts for my sheet. I should have finished by now, but I got extremely distracted....
Just found the site today. Hope people learn from past mistakes so they don't make the same ones again. This Country was founded by people fleeing tyranny. Lets hope we don't perpetuate that type of government here by ignoring the past.

My grandfather was the chief rigger on the erection of the statue of William Penn atop City Hall. On or about August 5th 1896 he was killed due to the scaffolding giving way. I have searched every way I know to find more information on the accident, but thus far to no avail. Is there someone who could point me in a better direction? Thank you, Claire Cockrell

My ancestors were Quakers who settled in Philadelphia. Joseph Saunders migrated there from England in 1732. He was a prosperous merchant and was the first clerk of the Philadelphia Contributionship Company founded by Benjamin Franklin and others in the 1750s. I am interested to learn more about him and if possible if there is a burial site still in existance.

I have recently researched my mother's family, the Brown(e) family. I have come upon an incredible find...my ancestor, Peter Browne, was one of the original passengers of the Mayflower in 1620, and also signed the Mayflower Compact. I have always been interested in geneology and it wasn't until recently I have come upon this great discovery. It it truly wonderful!

Taylor Parker , age:12 City:Auburn [07-26-2001]
Love the sight. We have a 13 star flag that I believe was raised at the Battle of Yorktown. We have had it analyzed at two different textile laboratories, where it has gone through extensive testing and analysis. Nothing is to refute it being an 18th century flag. It was repaired around the mid 19th century, this being found in the type of thread used in repairing the tattered corners and ends. It was used in a presidential campaign in 1868. The names Seymour and Blair were stitched on but have been removed. The studies found the outline of these names where the thread had been removed. I have my thoughts on its beginnings but things are hard to document. There are timetables, people, circumstances and places that all coincide but its hard to prove it. Any kind of suggestion or thought of advise would be greatly appreciated. One thing is for sure, we have a flag and its possible that it can be very important to this country but its a shame we don't know.

Nice to live with history in your own home I have several books going back to 1627 (Rollands Ancient History for one.) However my most favored item is a silk banner, or rectangular pennant (if it is that) which is 125 years old, and counting. This eleven by two and a half inch flag is a commemorative piece which was used in the celebration of The United States of America. It has been in the family 'forever' and likely to remain so with it's portrait of George Washington. and the thirteen original states.

How wonderful to bge able to print off the historic documents. They are as exciting to me today at age 63 as they were when I first saw them on the "Freedom Train" on its national tour in Flint, Michigan more than fifty years ago. We've become such a wealthy society (generally) with such an endless array of consumer goods, and seemingly endless arguments over non-essentials, that the philosophical foundations of this nation get lost. Thank you for providing this source of reminders of our foundation.

JOE DE SIMONE , nature's coast-florida [07-01-2001]
I read the history of Betsy Ross. I never knew much about her, only the obvious fact that she sewed the first American flag, commissioned by George Washington. I am her 7th great grand daughter, descended from Susan Crane Ross. A friend of mine did the genealogy for me, so I could see the connection between she and I. I would like to know more about her -- is there a definitive book written about her and her Revolutionary War efforts? Also, I would like to correspond with anyone else who is a descendant of hers. I truly enjoy the Revolutionary War Period. . .

I am looking for the email address of Karen Doke Colson in Florida, guestbook entry dated 4/8/99. Like her, I am also a direct descendent of Jane Barry, sister of Commodore John Barry. Her daughter, Rebecca Butler, married a Willcox from PA and a portion of the family line eventually headed south for the precious longleaf pines to keep that PA paper mill going in Ivy Mills, PA. Here in the south we have stayed... and multiplied! I am in Georgia and there are at least 3 counties here full of Commordore Barry's nieces and nephews; just a few thousand of us now! (Dodge, Telfair, and Wilcox counties). I think we all know each other, too (our family reunions are huge). However, I am interested in Ms. Colson's Florida line. Hope you can help me in obtaining her email address from 1999. Thanks and hoping one day to make it to PA to visit all of "my historical sites". Lisa Hargrove Willett from Middle Georgia

Our local American Legion Post 108 is also very involved in making our services memorable.

I have a photograph of what is said to be my mother's father - my grandfather - Thomas O'Donnell driving the last horse drawn fire engine "Philadelphia" 1898. He was from Corlea, Amagh Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland and it was taken outside the Fireman's Hall. This is the only information I have. Is there any where or anyone who would possibly have any further information.

I taught American History for years and feel that it is the most valuable tool to teach democracy that we have. Everyone should know his/her history and try to acquaint his/her self with the history of other races and nationalities. It would assure us a safe and positive space to live on this earth. It exposes us to different cultures and lifestyles which we would not be able to address in person in our day to day routine of learning.

For a history research project, each student was assigned a block to research in downtown Philadelphia. I wasn't having much luck with newspaper archives or books from the Free Library; your site helped me so much! There was so much information! However, a small suggestion: it would be flawless in my eyes if there was some way a viewer could specify a region to be researched. Like clicking on the general vicinity of a location and having the information pertaining to it appear. Thankyou so much! k

In researching the Prowell family,I have come to find that a Major Joseph Prowell died in Phila. and is buried at Old Pine Church. Also Mary Prowell,who died 1835 is said to be buried inside the front door of the original St Stephen's Church of Philadelphia,which I cannot find anywhere on your historic web site.We are going to visit Philadelphia after Easter and see what we can retrace.Major Prowell became a high sea merchant after the Rev. War.We are interested in the seaport museum at Penn's Landing also.Your site is very good,but could put more on about the old town and maybe some maps as it used to be in the Late 1700's and early 1800's.Also some old newspaper articles from a newspaper printing of the day.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia. From the time I was in kindergarden until my Senior year in high school I was "forced" to visit Independence Hall at least once a year. At the time I saw it as a boring class trip, but once I entered High school I realized that I had a genuine interest in American History. I recently moved to Atlanta Georgia to attend college, I was given an assignment by my History Professor, to visit a historical sight. The first place that popped in my head was the city that made me. You can't get any more historic than the birthplace of the entire nation. My main point for writing was to thank you for creating such a wonderful sight, it made my research much easier, and I even learned things that I didn't know before. Thanks again, Michelle, Atlanta, GA (my heart is still in Philly)
Michelle, 19, Atlanta - originally Philadelphia [04-11-2001]

The only thing I couldn't find here was a map of Philadelphia when it was the way it was in Betsy Ross's time. My report is due tomorrow and I can't find a map of Philadelphia when it was the way it was around Betsy's Time. Well I better keep surfing the web for a map. Come back later.

I am going to send this web-site address to him and let him see what is available here. I keep telling these men to tell their stories before we no longer have the information available.

I think the American is the coolest battle but the cheapest, because the Americans acted as though they won the whole thing. But the French did, because with out the French we would belong to Britain. We got only one good battle win that was against Burgoyne at Sartoga. But i liked how we ended the revoultion. We fought hard for our own government and it succeded , but now its seems like it is going down hill.but i liked how you told it on the net thanks a lot dudes it made an A on my project.

I have this stupid report.And at my school you have to get a good gradse or at least a C if you want to go to middle school. And it's for history one of my most hated subjects and it has to be on person in the reveloution war. You get a person and if you can't find any info on your person you get a battle or place. Well first I got Lydia someone but couden't find any thing on her so I got 5 other things because my teacher kept giving things that didn't have enough info for 775 words. So finaly I got Valley Forge and your site has really heped onlike, most of the 8 sites my computer picked up!

I am doing a report on her and I thought I would find something on your website, but I didn't. She did a lot for our country and if you are a history web-site you should have stuff about important women in our country as well as men too. Thank you very much. You also need some pictures of Martha Washington when she was younger. Goodbye.

This does not seem to be consistent with the statement on page 46 that Fox was not in on the founding. Any comments?

my history in philadelphia runs deep. Stephen Girard was a realitive of mine many moons ago. John Feeney,the first zoo keeper of Philadelphia Zoo was a direct realitive, and my grandfather was Frank Rizzo's partner when Frank was a rookie cop.His name was James Harley Porter.Also, in 1954 Wee Willy Webber and Phil Sheraden had the WFIL show. they where giving away $10,000.00 on the lucky buck contest. they where reading the serial numbers from a silver certificate every day and my grandmother Irene Porter won that money.I still have the newspaper clippings from the Phila Inquierer

On January 12, 2001, I had the distinct pleasure and opportunity to personally thank Mrs. Ruby Boyd for her spirit filled tour of Mother Bethel, AME Church. She and the church was the highpoint of the Roosevelt High School African American Club's Philadelphia African American tour. We were moved by her passion and sincerity to convey to the youth in our group the importance faith and dedication in our struggle to overcome racism. Our students were sincerely touch by her delivery. After leaving your church, many of the children conveyed their interest in returning to your Church Museum and indicated how much they enjoyed Mrs. Boyd's "history lesson." My wife and I are looking forward to atending Sunday service and worshipping with you in the future. The Spirit of the Lord was definitely moving between and within us today and, we sincerely thank Mother Bethel Church for opening its doors and allowing us to share in the rich history of a great man and great church.

I have been visiting National Parks and Historic sites for many years. Each and every time I was required to pay an access fee, I was more than delighted to pay it. I feel strongly that access fees accomplish two very important goals. The first being the generation of revenue used to keep the park or site properly maintained. The second thing fees tend to accomplish is discouraging people who are not interested in our history from attending. It has been my experience that these are the people who do not respect our national sites and tend to deface them by littering and GOD knows what else. The benefits fees provide for the parks are tremendous. Simply saying that fees will prevent people from attending is not enough. People who truly want to see that part of our history will still attend. I wish I could have posted this where the people signing the petition could readily see it. But the only way to do that is to sign the petition myself, which I have absolutely no intention on doing. By the way, this site is wonderful. I truly enjoy visiting.
