I was a very close friend of Christopher R Betts along with my family for a good 5 years when he moved here from Ohio. We miss him dearly and will always remember the good times we had together and we will all see eachother again one day. I love you big brother ( Christopher R Betts )

Dear USHISTORY.org; I attended a family Christmas party last night and an uncle (energized student of History!) in attendance told stories about John Barry. He (my uncle) believes John Barry's exploits and contributions to America have been minimilized by historians who prefer to perpetuate the idea that J Paul Jones is the father of the American Navy. After searching for info on J Barry this morning and discovering your report -- I have to agree with my uncle! Thanks for your efforts on behalf of those who have come before and made such significant contributions on behalf of those to follow them Jim Lynch Chicago, IL Ret US Army

I was ignorant of this man until a few days ago. I had always thought of JPJ as being the "Father of the Navy." After reading about Com. Barry, I've changed my mind. Very enlightening and interesting stuff.

Nice site, I like the marching tour of the 1777 Philadelphia campaign, but as a student of Military History, some of your info on Gen. Wayne conflicts with the authoritative works by authors such as Tucker and Stille. Good site to start understanding the complex set of events that occured during the most interesting part of the Revolutionary War.

I'm 81...grew up in Lancaster....have lived in central Mexico for some 40 years. My ancestor Thomas Willcox built a paper mill at Ivy Mills, (Concord Twp) Delaware County, PA. and sold paper to Benjamin Franklin. I have a copy of a business transaction between the two with both signatures. Also a great granddaughter of Thomas Willcox is buried in the St. Mary's churchyard. Also my great uncle Paul L. McConomy (d.1955) owned the oldest drug store in Philly at 20th and Callowhill, which was torn down in the 1930's for the B.F. Parkway.

It is designed with reproduced symbols of historic Philadelphia. I have been unable to get the exact details since I purchased it. I am writing a story about it for a graduate class. If you have any information that would help me, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

response for nowakmail@aol.com I must offer corrections to your e-mail, even though U read thA e information in a Philadelphia newspaper. William Strickland's FIRST design was the Second Bank of the United States, located on Chestnut St. between 3Rd. and 4Th streets. This dates from 1815. Next, the Pennsylvania State House ; Independance Hall ; design is attributed to the " Philadelphia Lawyer" Andrew Hamilton, while Kearsley was Master Carpenter, if I remember right. I was looking for my copy of the Foundation for Architecture's guide book, but I can't seem 2 find it. This is where this info comes from, if I remember right. Lastly, concerning Belmont Plateau, there are NO structures on the Plateau execpt the refreshment stands. On the "Belmont" is the mansion which has a long history of use.

Re: Listing about Architect William Strickland...I thought you might be interested to know that according to a photocopy of a newspaper article dated July 17, 1979 from "The Bulletin" in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, it is believed that William Strickland's oldest extant work is Christ Church Hospital's 2nd building located at 313 Cherry Street in Philadelphia, designed by William Strickland and built in 1818 (Christ Church Hospital's first building at 310 Arch Street burned and the "Hospital" (really a name in the 1700's for a place of hospitality, a "home for needy indigent women of the Protestant Episcopal Church in America") rebuilt on the lot on Cherry Street. Christ Church Hospital is today called simply "Kearsley", named after its founder, Dr. John Kearsley (who is credited with designing Independence Hall)who died in 1772 and founded in his will "Christ Church Hospital". The current facility stands on "Belmont Plateau" in the Wynnefield Heights section of Philadelphia, its building having been designed by architect John Gries and built in 1861.

Response to Brian S. Petresky, There wher TWO immigration sites in Philadelphia during the period that you are asking about. One was the pier that now is the location of "DAVE and BUSTER'S" and the Japanese restaurant "MEIJI-EN", located at Delaware Ave. and Callowhill. The other, and I believe, more important site was located at Delaware and Washington Aves. This site is in MY opinion so interesting because if you drive west on Washington Ave. you can see over 3 CENTURIES of immigration to this area. Starting with the Swede's church of the early period, through the Irish, the Italians, to the newest immigrants the Southeast Asians.

I was going through the site and noticed the Pretzel Museum closed in Philadelphia. That's sad. I used to eat lunch there every so often when I worked in the city of brotherly love, and now that little bit of my memory is gone. It always smelled like salt and cookie dough ice cream and made me think of warm summer days during school vacation.

I love the USA. I've seen quite a bit of the USA and several foreign countries. Nothing is better than home. I stand united with the rest of this country in the face of adversity. We have our petty fights and disagreements but we are united against all enemies who wish to destroy our way of life. Freedom was never been given. Only taken with the muscle, tears and blood of those who knew freedom is worth fighting for.

Bob Reardon, Philadelphia area [09-28-2002]

It is the dedication of Americans like YOU that makes this nation GREAT. Yes indeed, we are DAMNED LUCKY to live in this nation which offers it's people such freedoms. Let us not forget that our history HAS shown a failing to recoqnize women and people of color all the freedoms they were intitled to, but remember that the Constitution can, and HAS changed to rectify these issues. MY country, in Her intercourse with foreign nations may She always be right : but MY country RIGHT OR WRONG!!!! Should you ever visit Philadelphia please don't forget to visit Washington Square and stop at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of the American Revolution and pay tribute to the over 2000 soldiers that gave THEIR LIVES to give US these freedoms. The inscriptions say it all; "Freedom is a LIGHT for which MANY have died in darkness", " Here lies a soldier of Washington's army who died to give YOU LIBERTY". Remember the REAL HEROS, those who died to create this great nation.

What a joy to learn about the people that signed and the history of their service to our country. I hope someday a teacher opens the pages of history and shows the "colorful past" in a way that would encourage our children to seek out and learn about the country we call the United States of America!

God bless all those workers who helped to dig through the rubble, God pray for all those families who lost loved ones; there is nothing that anyone can say or do to sympathize with the families. But I hope and pray that those who are responsible for ALL the hurt, pain,loss of sons, brothers,aunts,uncles,sisters, cousins, best friends all of those poor unsuspecting innocent people. May God lay a healing hand on the Hearts of all those who have lost some one on this horrible, may God give you the strength,courage and wisdom to carry on and look after each other, the children, the parents and yourselves.

Ecuse me, but some of your speeches reminds me with some speeches from germans 70 years ago. "God Bless our Country, god bless our administration, God bless the Fuhrer" and so on. Remenber. To much nationalism could end in war. I hope, you would not start saying "Heil Bush" or something else... good night

I grew up in Philly. Attended Finletter Shool and Olney HS. I now live in Florida. One of my fondest memories of Philly is the 4th of July celebration when I was a kid - that was SO much fun! A parade on 5th Street in the morning (every kid got a flag to wave), games and food afterward at Fisher's Park and the baby parade on 5th Street that afternoon. Of course, there were fireworks all around the neighborhood at night. I miss Italian water ices, soft pretzels, cheese steaks and hoagies so much I can almost taste them. Go Phils, go Birds and go Sixers - yay!

Having just celebrated the 4th of July in Venezuela by reading out the Declaration of Independence at our flag raising ceremony, I was very interested to come across your Town Crier page today. Dressed as a Continental Soldier, I read out the Declaration "to the soldiers and citizenry" gathered here at the American Embassy in Caracas, Venezuela on the Fourth of July, "per instructions from General Washington, Commander in Chief of the Continental Army." Upon conclusion, my six-year old son, dressed as a minute man, went through a seven-step manual of arms to load and fire his (toy) musket (accomplished by dropping a fire cracker into the muzzle). The shot was the signal to begin the playing of the National Anthem, which in turn signal our U.S. Marine Security Detachment to hoist our huge "garrison" flag up the Embassy flagpole. I hope to learn some pointers from your Town Crier page.

Born in Ireland in 1938, I enlisted in the US Navy in 1959 at the US Embassy, London. Commissioned in Aug, 1960, I served in the navy for over six years. It puzzled me then--as it does now--that so little of naval history was taught, either in Recruit Training or OCS. Certainly, I had heard of Commodore Barry, but only in the most general sense. Now, years later, I believe that teaching biograhpies of US admirals, e.g. Nimitz, Spruance, King, etc., may have made us all better sailors and citizens. We say now that we lack heroes. Yet when we have had them, we allow ourselves to forget, to ignore their part in shaping our history and our identity. Yet how important it is for all of us to know. When we remember, we can better overcome the challenges of the present and the fear we so often have of the future.
