I think you should develop and sell a package of reproductions of primary sources for the grade school child. With the new national and state level frameworks placing a huge emphasis on the use of primary sources in eaching social studies such a package would be very valuable. I would like to purchase the 4 documents that Franklin signed, but can only get reproducions of the two big ones, the declaration and the constitution. Really any thing from his life would be a great addiion o any classroom.

I served with the Old Guard at Ft Snelling, Mn from Oct 1940 till June of 1942. Have attended one reunion at Ft Snelling. I served most of my time in the Anti Tank Co. I was transferred to the Army Air Corps unassigned awaiting aviation cadet training. I have visited many of the old members of the Anti Tank Co. and communicate regularly with T/Sgt James and Dorthea Tower in Staples, Mn. Most of the old members have passed on. Thank you for a wonderful site. I have fond memories of my duties at Ft Snelling. Orval Wood

Molly Maxine Winchester, 15, morgan utah [04-26-2004]

Planned the Independence (1 day) tour. Could have told me that I had to have txt for Independence Hall, Carpenters Hall and Old City Hall, that you pretty much had to undress to get thru security at the Liberty Bell and that Betsy Ross House "voluntary" contribution was $5 Adult $2 Kids and there was someone sitting at the desk to make sure you paid it. After we were told at Noon we had to have txt for Independence Hall, we went to Visitors Center to get them and couldn't get in until 4:00. Had to rearrange entire thought process as to what we were going to do with 4 hours of the day. Went to Mint only to find big concrete barriers, locked doors and signs on the doors saying if we wanted a tour, had to make advanced reservation thru special phone # or email. Somewhat disappointing, but did see everything (except the Mint).

RATHIP PREYENKA [04-08-2004]

I'm extremely proud to be an American and of our flag and what it represents. I am hurt by those who don't understand or know what price has been paid going back to the American Revolution, not just loss of life, but other consequences due to loyalty our country. It bothers me to see symbols of our freedoms used especially by entertainers who can sing about costs but have never experienced the opportunity to help pay the price by service. They can be so flippant and "brave" about the experiences in song, but can they do the work necessary? Not just entertainers either, but anyone who claims to love our country but treats it so shabbily- even down to the simplest act of littering. Thank you for the opportunity to vent.

Texas Flag Code 3100.0055 states that the US flag should fly to the left of the state flag when viewed from the perspective of the observer. This should say the US flag fly ALWAYS to the right of any state flag. Maybe they meant "marching" left.

History is the window to our past victorys and mystakes. it teaches us to cling to what is right, and learn from were we went worng. So that we dont have to make the same mystakes again and again. We can progress forward for our children and our childrens, children, if we all would look at our own mystakes and esteem to learn from them, and overcome them. That is why Hystory is so important to me.

Interesting, but I found nothing about three of my ancestors, Bernard Mercer (immigrated to Phila about 1807), his son, George Parker Mercer b. 1812 in Phila, George's wife, Mary "Margaret" Coates Albertson b. 1812 in Phila, or Mary's parents. Mary's father owned and operated a shipping business at Third and Pine. When he died the business went to George. When George died the business went to George's brothers, leaving Mary with almost no income. She had to apprentice out her children. I am trying to confirm that this Bernard Mercer is the same Bernard Mercer who Phila records show as having arrived in Phila in 1807 from Ireland.

I have been looking for this book "Happenings in Ye olde Philadelphia", for a long time, i used to own one that was very old and signed. I was telling my barber about it one day, and he asked if he could see it, so the next time i got him to cut my hair i lent it to him. The next time I went back he was closed up? I dont know what happened or whatever but it was weird, it was around 1992 the barber lived in Manayunk, and his shop was on Lee and Ontario sts, on the corner.

The issue now is to get out of there to close down the blood-shed by brave American military personnel and others,which will only prolong and deepen the grief of the AMERICANS and the rest of the world. End it all as soon as possible.

I am looking for information on both of them. Silas Crispin married Ester Holme who was the daughter of Thomas Holme who was also a surveyor for Penn.

As a family genealogist I have discovered by researching from my birth record backwards how important school is; Every generation from my mother 2004 back to 1695 the Whelchel surname has been mispelled. If I had not went from record to record backwards I would have never found my mothers ancestors. The spellings found to document the lives of Analee Whelchels family has been found as follows: Whelchel,Whelcher,Welchel,Welcher,Whetchel,Wetchel,Whiechel,Whelchell,Welchell,Whetschel,Wetchsel,Welchel. With my line documented back to the Revolutionary War I'am sure to find the other mispelled family names that married in to my family.

CLEM GAGNON, fort erie ontario [01-04-2004]

I have an academic sholarship in sociology at boise state university. I wanted to move to Philly and study the city's culture, especially because of the skateboard subculture which has deep roots there especially in LOVE park. Since the park is now closed, I am not moving there. I am currently planning on moving to seattle instead, if LOVE park re-opens I will consider moving there, but as of now, Seattle is the plan. I think Philly still has a lot to offer, but the philly skate scene was a big part of my growing up in Idaho and watching skate video's. In my opinion banning philly for skating is putting a hammer on philly's potential for economic history.
