Skateboarding is another thing the city has taken away from our kids. They have fun, what else can you do in eastliverpool for fun. I think the city should give them a place to skate indoors. People complain about the kids being in trouble, why don't we let them have some innocent fun. Build a skatepark for them so they aren't tearing up the town. It would cost less to build a park then to pay for repairs all thh time. It's just another way for the fat lazy ass city of east liverpool to make money. Writing tickets to kids who are trying to have some fun in this poverty hell.

I just finished reading your article on Commodore Barry. There have been many many family rumors of relation to the esteemed navy man. I have not found any conclusive evidence, but your account of this man's life and demeanor compel one to settle the matter once and for all. Thank you for such a well written biography.

I lived in Philadelphia from 1974-1994. The Poe House on 7th Street, Fairmount Avenue near the Art Museum (Poe lived where that triangular park is now), the Merchant's Exchange, are all fresh in my mind. WXPN-FM broadcast my "Edgar Allan Poe in Philadelphia" in 1989. I feel fortunate to have lived in the city where Poe wrote is best work. http://www.voyage-step.com/

Stach [11-29-2003]

The reason why I'm here is because God told me, as behind with things as I already am, to help deal with religious liberty. As a strict constitutionalist, I believe that, in historical context, Founding Fathers meant for "no establishment of religion" to mean no one can be forced by the State to obey one particular religion, and that it means nothing else. "Separation of Church and State" therefore cannot be used against anyone who expresses religion publicly, whether at school, work, in a court building, with signs by the road and so on. I believe in various Christian groups fighting to regain strict constitutional government in our land about matters like religion. Documents like what you have are extremely difficult to find. Thank you for posting them.

Visited your site, particularly interested in the bar, "Peeks" at the Reading Terminal Station. This bar belonged to my Grandfather, John Lyons, Sr. before prohibition. My Father passed away recently, and I met a classmate of my Dad's, a man who told me about how famous this "Peeks" bar was. This man is 96 yrs. old, and graduated with my Dad from West Catholic High School. I'd like to hear more about this bar. Do you have any add'l information?

I am Secretary/treasurer/Historian. 13 of us form this society on September 28, 2003, and are officially chartered with the National Headquarters. What is also interesting is that one of our members is a decendent of Commodore John Barry, founder of the U. S. Navy. We are raising funds to build a historical library of several of our members with tremendous historical backgrounds. Just wanted to share this with you because it is interesting to us! Tod Jonson

Thanks for the great job on putting this together.Just so you know I was very impressed that you had included Stephen Girard. a lot of people do not realize that he helped this country out in a big way when we were short of money. Why we do not have a postage stamp in his honor I do not know.( WE SHOULD ). Also, I attended Girard College from 1961-1972. The info you have on Girard is excellent. As this info should be in our history books. Thanks again. Dave

Researching the John Spencer-Susanna Lightfoot line, of my family, through my great-grandfather Edwin G. Russell, and wife, Anna Hartman. I've been told the Lightfoots were Irish Quakers. They intermarried with the Mendenhalls, who came to America with Will Penn, a staunch non trinitarian, who was sentenced to the Tower of London for life, for his non-trinity stance. He was a prolific writer of such books as "The Errors of the Trinity," and "A Sandy Foundation Shaken," and he invited many to settle Pennsylvania, envisioning a eutopia of citizens who had at long last "Come of of Babylon," back to theeir Judeo-Christian roots, long before the political ploys of Constantine at the Council of Nicea. He later had himself baptized by one of the Arain heretics, Eusebius. Penn believed the fullness of the Godhead is in Jesus Christ, like the bible says in Col. 2:9. This belief was basic to the Quakers, like Penn and George Fox. It was reformation doctrine. Penn was influenced to a large degree by the French Huguenots, Camisards and Quakers, or Irish Quakers. Am enjoying learning more about this family, and suspect they believed like William Penn, and probably came to America like the Mendenhalls, by personal invitation of William Penn, though I have yet to prove it. http://www.apostolicnetwork.com/riverlark http://www.angelfire.com/wa3/skylarkofthemorning

I am extremely gratified that you have a record of Christopher Columbus' letter to Luis De Sant Angel wherein he proclaimed his discovery of the West Indies. It is a sure compfort that there are still historians that preserve orginal documents and collectibles that have not passed through the filters of editors, news correspondents and bureaucrats. Political correctness is killing the transmission of the soul of America's rich history and pioneer heritage. May God bless you richly for the great work you do in maintaining a forum and record accessible to the public. With devoted gratitude, Brian K. Welch Nashville, Tennessee

I am trying to gather information on my family history and I have been reaching roadblocks. I know that we had quite a few Methodist Ministers in our family line, and I know that my great uncle Houston Ross was one of the early members of Tindley Temple at Broad & Fitzwater St, in Philadelphia. But, I have been unable to find out much information about the early religions. Mr. Sidney, I never knew his last name was a member of your church. He died in the 1980's and Mr. Carter (lived on S 53rd St) was also. I talked with them before and they said this was one of the best churches to try to get info from. I have never been to your church but do have intentions on visiting soon. The church I am trying to gather information on is now called "New Union United AME". It is located in Goldsboro, MD. Their current pastor is Rev. Margarie Burns. She has been with the congregation for a while now.

My 6th great Uncle Solomon Fussell ame from Yorkshire, England and opened a carpentry shop on Second Street in the years between 1721-1735. He was in business there for some time. He was the first person in the colonies to mass produce chairs. Benjamin Franklin ordered chairs from him some of which are still in existance in private collections and in museums. Documented also is the fact that Ben also used wood turnings produced by Uncle Solomon to assemble some of his scientific equipment. He trained another famous furniture maker named William Savery. His descendants are documented as having been very active in the Underground Railroad as conductors in PA and in Maryland, and are written about in William Stills book entitled The Underground Railroad, and various other historical works. One of Solomon's descendants Bartholomew Fussell, helped to found the Women's Medical College originally the Female Medical College, another practiced medicine there as well. I have copies of that ancestors medical case books when he served as chirman of a department there and also graduation addresses when he was the President of the College or equivalent title in those days. I would give anything to have a picture of the site where Solomon's cair shop was located if it is known. Could someone please help me in obtaining information about its exact location if possible?

Very nice site. I've always been fascinated with historical stuff, especially about Philadelphia. Philadelphia is rich with history. This site demonstrates that. I love it. I came to this site because I need to find out where the Good Samaritan Hospital was in Philly? Also the Temple Baptist Church. Who was Dr Russel H. Cornwell. He authored a book, ACRES OF DIAMONDS. There is a very touching story that spurs my interest about these places and people which supposedly occured during the turn of the century. Temple University is part of it also. Please give me the whole picture. Thank You.

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. http://www.telephone-fr.com

Every time I see a POW flag I am deeply touched. I don't know anyone who has been POW or MIA. We recently got a flag pole. Would it be disrespectful if we flew a POW flag? Would it be disrespectful to the families and friend of the so many still lost to us? I would very much appreciate an opinion. thank you debbie gordon

Why were none of Frank Furness's lovely houses around Rittenhouse Square included in your walking tour? He is the most important Victorian architecture in America, and the Rittenhouse Square area offers an unparalleled collection of his houses. Where is the Thomas Hockley House on 21st Street? Where is the Thomas Reilly House on Rittenhouse Square? And so forth. I recommend you get a copy of the recent biography, Frank Furness: Architecture and the Violent Mind, and update your website, which is otherwise quite splendid.

I'm the Superintendent of an American WWI Cemetery in Bony, France (Somme American Cemetery)and recently a British visitor asked why the American Flag had to be illuminated after nightfall in order to continue flying it? I know that it clearly states in Title 4, Chapter 1: The Flag, Section 6a that it's required to be illuminated but doesn't state the reason. Do you have any information pertaining to this question? Your assistance would be appreciated.

The Office of Management and Budget and the Interior Department (DOI) are preparing to hand over National Park Service jobs to private contractors. Under a government-wide initiative, up to 70 percent of all National Park Service jobs could be sold to the lowest bidder. As a result, our national parks would lose scientists, archaeologists, maintenance workers, educators, and many others who protect park resources and provide us a safe and enjoyable experience. In fact, National Park Service Director Fran P. Mainella recently warned DOI of some of the possible consequences including: Impact on Visitors' Experiences: National parks receive nearly 300 million visitors every year. As more and more Park Service positions are outsourced, visitors will find fewer employees able to answer questions about the parks and our history, shorter hours at parks, fewer campgrounds open, and fewer guided tours and other activities. Visitors to our national parks will be the losers. Diversity: Director Mainella said, "89 percent of the . . . jobs proposed for study in the Washington, D.C., area may affect diversity of our workforce. Studies in San Francisco and Santa Fe also show large concentrations of diverse full time employees [to be affected] as well." Morale: This unfunded mandate will impact these dedicated employees with a passion for their job that often go above and beyond the call of duty. Contractors will work 9 to 5 because their eye is on the bottom line and how to save money. We don't pay our park rangers more money for helping a stranded motorist in a remote park at 10 p.m. or our maintenance workers more for helping explain the historical significance of a building they are working on to a passing tourist. Wholesale privatization disregards the commitment of people for whom working for the Park Service is a calling. Park Service Budget: It will cost millions to study the jobs that may or may not be privatized. And no money has been appropriated for this mandate from this Administration to pay for these studies. Instead, repairs and other basic, vital maintenance will be delayed, roads, visitor centers, and other facilities will go without needed repairs, let alone upgrades, and Park Service staff, according to Mainella, will need to be "taken off other priority projects" to work on the privatization studies. Money currently earmarked for needed maintenance and preservation—areas the President has said was a priority—will need to be directed to outside contractors for studies to replace the Park Service employees who are responsible for protecting our parks. Economic Impact: Many gateway communities rely on the economic benefit of the national parks—the National Park System generates more than $10 billion in local economies and nearly 300,000 jobs. Privatization will only sell those jobs to the lowest bidder jeopardizing both the parks themselves, and the experiences of millions of visitors—potentially having serious consequences for local communities who depend on those visitors. At times like these, when people are trying to reconnect with the history that our national parks preserve, we should not be casting aside the historians, archaeologists, museum curators, maintenance workers, architects, and other stewards of our natural and cultural heritage and placing their responsibilities in the hands of the lowest bidder. Although the need for the goverment to downsize is appreciated and widely supported, Our Natural Parks are not the place to do it. Us as citizen's of the United States will loose, contracted employees will not have the needed committment to protect and preserve as current park service stewards who live by the mission of the park service as a way of life. Therefore, we respectfully request that the House state clearly and unanimously its opposition to the Privatization of the National Park system. Please voice your opinion and sign our petition http://www.petitiononline.com/SVNPS/petition.html Sincerely,
Marla_paxton [07-10-2003]

While studying history in school and reading about different wars, it's easier realizing the suffering the soldiers went through after seeing remakes of different war movies as in say, the blue and gray-saving private ryan-pearl harbor and so on, knowing that in reality it was far worse than any movie could ever make it look. And it makes me realize that there are a lot of people out there that give their lives for us, and for what reason is that, FREEDOM, I wish more people would realize that they wouldn't be able to do their everyday activities no matter what they are, fun or not so fun, if it was'nt for our military, past and present, So i just want to say THANK YOU TO ALL THE VETERANS OF ALL WARS, there are some people who really do appreciate what you did and do for our freedom.

I am in the Military and find that people disrespect the United States Flag. In point, I have seen the McDonalds flag on the same pole as the United States flag and touching, as well as other flags. I am sure that protocol as it may be, should still be the only to fly the United States Flag with only the POW Flag below it, and no tother flag allowed on the same pole as the United States Flag. I believe that the Flag as beautiful and as meaningful as well as powerful as it is can surely fly by itself and is owed that respect!

I am reading the complete works of Poe and his writing is brilliant. He is very profound and he triggers a thougth process like no other. I enjoy the writings of Jules Verne and I was pleased to see the many writers that Poe influenced.

How often is this site updated because other sites say that the Liberty Bell is located in a different place than what is on this web site?
Laela Martini [06-06-2003] It is updated frequently. The Liberty Bell will be moving to its new pavilion later this year. -Webmaster

This information is really helpful in school for me. I am going to Phildelphia next week. And we are doing a project about history there. Thank you for making this website!
