I have looked at some of your site,very impressive!I will be back to your site later to learn more.
DEBRA BATSON, South Carolina [06-27-2002]

I am a native of Philadelphia and am familiar with most of its history. This is why I am perplexed since there is no mention of slavery in the city of "Brotherly Love". Nor was it mentioned that our first president, George Washington lived in the first White House in Philadelphia, and owned slaves. It is worth noting that on the site where the Philadelphia White House once stood is a slave graveyard where Washington's slaves are buried. Many Philadelphians a protesting the building a new home for the liberty bell on this site before anthropologists can recover important artifacts from that period in our history. Thank you for the opportunity to share my thoughts.

To all the students that visit this site because they were told to, you are missing a great opportunity to learn more about our nation's history. My young friends, I have been reading about history for over 30 years and I think this site is the best for Early American History. Don't just check it out because your teacher told you to, explore the different things this site has to offer. History is ALIVE, man; history is not a bunch of old dead people who did stuff a long time ago. The things these people did were done because they felt they were important at the time, not because they wanted to be remembered in history books. Remember, were it not for these people we would have NO nation; and remember, this includes men and WOMEN; we tend to forget the contributions of women during the Revolution. I hope that there are many future historians reading this site. My young friends, when it comes to history there are many FINE people that you might wish to follow such as Stephen Ambrose, Bruce Catton, Shelby Foote, or David McCullough. Be a parasite like ME and make your living from others that have been long dead. My young friends history is FOREVER. Andrew of Philadelphia

James Willis [06-05-2002]

I was in Philadelphia last month looking for a job and did have some time to see some of the historical sights and they were pretty much the same and had toured them many times previously with little change. The only real change was the metal detectors in the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall (The Pennsylvania State House). I spent more time job searching and did not get much but am registered with 2 employment agencies there. I am registered with Stivers Personnel at 1617 JFK Boulevard (One Penn Center) and Today's Office Staffing at 1801 Market Street (Ten Penn Center) both in Center City. I email them once a week and will keep on emailing them until they can get me a full time job in Center City or Olde City. I need all the prayers for this and would appreciate it since there are cutbacks coming here at the University of Missouri Hospital and Clinics. I had a great time in Philadelphia and am hoping to relocate there in Center City soon. I need lots of prayer for this in HIS name. Thanks Ravi Sehgal

BobSuflay.com/Me, Age:20 (That's rude) [05-28-2002]

Question: often we note that a flag is flown at half-staff in "pedestrian" situations, e.g. at the school when a student dies, at the country club when the chairman dies, at the muffler shop when the owner dies. Flag rules and regulations allow for half-staff for government dignitaries, heads of state, supreme court justices and such, but there is no reference in the rules and regs to the "pedestrian" situations. Obviously it is intended as a matter of respect, but technically, is this practice proper? I'd welcome a reply.

I am finding this site one of the best and most interesting sites for history of the revolution. I enjoy reading the e-mails from the many students that use your site for research and find history to be so fun. I recall the many teachers in my past that COULDN'T teach history; history is not dry dates and names. These were REAL people who did REAL things,history can and SHOULD be brought to life. When I was a young student of history I met a man at the University Museum who brought history to LIFE for me by placing in my hands the tunic of a Roman soldier 2000 years old and telling me that for all he knew that soldier may have been present at the crucifixion of The Christ. After 30 years I remember that day as if it were yesterday. Continue your good work; but we have to talk sometime about Betsy, I count myself amoung the doubters but am willing to examine any evidence that may exist. Best Regards, Andrew

FREEDOM IS INSPIRED Freedom and Inspiration, is the largest heart felt talk of all people and the media in our United States today. Unlike most experiences the September 11th event has woken a sleeping giant. Though our great country slept in our freedom comfortable and secure, because of the events of September 11th we now realize how much work to protect and keep our freedom strong that it really takes. And if anyone thinks because of our ability to relax in our freedom, is a weak sign. They better think agin and watch their back, because this county is no longer asleep. We hold our fight for killing discrimination one of our biggest projects and September 11th has woken a lot of feelings of closeness to this problem. We stand more united today than we have felt in many years. Living our daily lives has become living our lives to its fullest and making commitments to keeping freedom in a complete focus. Yes, September 11th happened because of our relaxed state of security in our own self. However; we now realize our efforts and the deaths of so many will only make sense if we now stand united and strong in our new awakened world of freedom. The people that thought hitting our country would break us only set us more free. And to see our freedom stand complete, we must live with freedom in our selves on a daily base and let it be shown to the rest of the world that free is what man was meant to be. As a country we will always stand United, Free, and Strong. And someday we will make sure freedom will ring true around the whole world.

This site is wonderfully built and I am very proud of AME history. I am a member of St. Paul AME Church Nashville and I hope to have a web site up and runing at the end of May 2002. St. Paul's History date back to 1863, It's one day younger than St. John. The structure built by the first members of the church is located on fourth and Franklin South Nashville, but worship is no longer held there. The members now worship in a new structure in North Nashville.

She was just wonderful in assisting me for this college assignment of making my own lesson plan about social studies of historic downtown Philadelphia, PA. (Which is were I was born! Now I reside near San Francisco in sunny California.)I will tell my college classmates (there are 18 of us studying to be elementary school teachers) about this website. I hope this will be good to do. Have a smiles day! Sincerely, Kathryn F. Morhuser (Substitute Teacher)

We have just recently started a Toastmasters International Group at the Navy Depot in Mechanicburg, Pa. One day as I was walking to a Toastmaster meeting, I heard a voice proclaing that the name of the group should be called "Now Hear This." I originally thought this might be a military (navy) command. But now I have my doubts. I think it might be a cry of the town criers, to declare that he/she has news to share. I am so happy to see this site, I am going to share it with others and perhaps Their will be a World Wide Z"Now Hear This" Who Knows?

I am researching my family history. One great uncle, Carl Mackley, was killed for union activities in Philadelphi @ 1930. The Carl Mackley Apartments are named for him. His mother, Katarina Machlud (Machlyd) came to the US in 1903 through Ellis Island. Her husband, Josef Machlyd, arrived a few months earlier through the Port of Baltimore. They listed their home town as Zyrardow, Poland. Katarina brought four children with her on the boat. Two more children were born in the US. Carl was their youngest son. I am very interested in the events surrounding Carl's death, but can not find any information on him, only the apartments.

Is there a central organization within the state of New Jersey that handles/overlooks the affairs of all the ministries withing the state? I am looking to contact the right party who would like to consider a no cost/obligation proposal for saving energy costs for the entire ministry within the state. I've found that the largest economies are realized when directed from a central organization - which is the reason for my request. Thank you - Stephen Brandt

Great site. I am so thrilled. I found that relatives had a bar in philly. Do you have anymore info.on Campiglia there? Is the building there? I want to go back & see it. Always wanted to go to Philly. I think in 1870 they came over from Italy. Maybe others came sooner. Great Grandpa I am named after I believe was on ship in 1870. I am just starting research tonight. Thanks for any help you can give me. I am a collector of old bottles & wonder if they had their name on a bottle. So many did. I see lots of 1860's to 80's PA. sodas & beers.

I will be in Philadelphia from April 19-May 11, 2002. I will be very busy job searching there and will need all of the prayers of the saints in this particular place. I will be hitting the streets of Center City Philadelphia. I will be using SEPTA quite a bit "YIKES!" I hope to find a job there and soon and do not know if I will have time to see any of the historical sights but have seen them many times when I had lived previously in Philadelphia. I will keep on praying for Mayor John Street and protection of all of Philadelphia as well as finding a job there. I will eventually work my way from around Broad and Market Streets to the Independence Mall or Olde City area. thanks.

I attended the Wrld Championships for Town Criers in Anecortes in 2001 and was awarded the Best New Town Crier. I would like all those who attended to know that my sister Paddy-Ann Pemberton who traveled as my escort to Anecortes has caught the "bug" and will be initiated into the Honourable Guild of Town Criers New Zealand this week end and compete for the first time. We wish to send our love and best wishes to all those criers whom we met while we were in the States. I diligently had all criers write there emails and snail mail addresses in a book but it has been mislaid so if any criers want to contact either Paddy Ann or myself please do so in the first instant by emailing me on the address given ubove.

Caitlin Malone, age:10 Powell,Ohio [03-03-2002]

I think you americans are drowning in your own stupidity and world ruling obsession... You stick your nose into every damn thing that happens in this world and someday, it will get shot off. I dont condone terrorist actions, neither do I think that the way Bush handled the Afganistan event was appropriate. A lone Sniper would have gone a great deal further and done less damage to the already war-ravenged plains of afganistan and its people, who dont know better than what their gov has been stuffing down their throats all these years. THINK AMERICA... Is anything right anymore? Or are we simply the same cavemen from thousands of years back, simply with better technology? The mindset is the same I think... We still take everything by force and force others into submission...

This was all quite interesting. I was brought to this site while searching D.& P.R.W.Co. It seems my great grandfather bought 221.4 acres of land in Texas back in 1910. The grandtee is listed as D&PRWCo. Not, that he ever got to Texas, but Alfred Younglund did work the railroads through Nebraska and Wyoming, often having Jessie James and a few others as passengers.

jordan hailee kolb [02-27-2002]

Thank you for a fun and informative website. Having returned from my latest visit to Philadelphia on Saturday, you finally laid to rest my most urgent question: *When* was Philadelphia founded? I just spent 5 days reading every historical marker I could find, visiting venerable old homes, reading magazines about the city... but no one *ever* said when it was actually founded. Actually, about 90% of the historical information the city offers is about the Revolution. So, is 1701 the right answer? I hope I've solved my puzzle -- your site sure offers a lot more information than a dedicated walk around Old Philadelphia will. If only the city had a history museum -- for that as well I searched in vain. Thanks again. A really nice site.
Michael Arrowood, Age 40; Zirconia, NC [02-27-2002]

Hello! My name is Mary Kate. Two years ago I attended East Goshen Elementary where my fifth grade mentall gifted class wrote a book on the Paoli Battlefield. We also took trips to Harrisburg and Washington D.C., trying to persuade the government to let us preserve the Paoli Battlefield. After writing many letters, writing a book, making trips, and gaining support from many people, our group passed the right to preserve this place where an important battle was fought. I am very proud of myself and all of my fellow classmates because, without our contributions, the battlefield would be covered in a developement of new gigantic houses! Hello! My name is Colleen, Mary Kate's little sister! I love this website and I'm proud of my elementary school for doing the awesome work to save the Paoli Battlefield. Love, Mary Kate and Colleen (%

Having visited Philadelphia for the first time last year (2001), I was impressed by the city which I had always perceived as a big, dirty, violent industrial conurbation with no heart. I was disabused: being impressed by its olde worlde areas and ita historical areas. I'd like to ride my bike (but not being anything like Greg Lemond or Lance Armstrong I probably never will!) along that big long, broad avenue that likens itself to les Champs Elysées.

I hope to write a book - Oh yes, I also need to know where to search for birth records and cemetary records for the Catholic Church at the time I believe there was but one and that it still stands.

The single greatest Hero America has ever known is George Washington! His genius as a military Commander-In = Chief is unequeled in the annals of warfare. His stature as a man among his peers is in the finest tradition of our Founding Fathers! There should not exist an American History text book that fails to mention his name and myriad accomplishments throughout his lifetime. It would be a cultural disgrace to refashion American History by Academics, simply because he lived in a time when all things were not good,LIKE todays times!

Is it possible to obtain rosters of crewmen, dates served, and vessels assigned from that period? His name was Frederick Hesser, and was in his mid teens when he enlisted. He had just left the service of Gen. Washington as drummer boy. Thank you for your kind consideration. Kurt W. Hesser

Thank you so much for developing links for children to study. I teach fifth grade in North Carolina, and I use your web site for research to show the beginning of the United States. I feel it is imperative that students realize what our ancestors went through in order for us to have the freedoms we have today. Thanks for a job well done! Marguerite Wesley

Charles Thomson, the so-called Sam Adams of Pensylvannia, was chosen "secretary" of the Continental Congresses--the only person there before, during and after the successful end of the rebellion. It was said that only he could write the real history of the Revolution but he burned his papers, instead. Why is he ignored? For the burning? Because he didn't write the history? Why? After all, his was one of only two names on the Declaration of Independence, when it was first made public. For 200 years our family has been mulling over these questions, with lots of other myths and legends about Washington, Revere, etc.
