Lived in Phila all my life and was always interested in American History. To my surprise I discovered that my ancestor was mentioned in the Papers of George Washington as the person who spied on Hessian and British troops prior to the Christmas crossing of the Delaware ( Papers of George Washington 1997 vol 7 page 416 ) I had always thought that my family came to America in the 1800's but now I know they were patriots that played a major role in our nations founding. THANKS
Not bad very cool. Just add a littlemore.

Thank you for the quality information covering people and events that shaped America. Your website has been very useful in my research and writing on the principles of liberty and democratic republic government. I have especially enjoyed and found very helpful the Electric Franklin page along with The Franklin Papers at Yale University and The Quotable Franklin pages. Philadelphia and its surrounding areas provide an enormous amount of historical richness. I have lived in Harrisburg and historical Carlisle, Pennsylvania. --Brian Blackwell, Norwich NY

kenneth J. Kant [12-04-2004]
I am doing genealogy. Recently, I have found that I trace to the Quakers of Philadelphia. My g g g grandparents were William Hopkins and Ann Tuckniss. I know that they were disowned in 1795 because they married contrary to discipline and that William wanted to practice the art of war. Was he part of this Quaker group? Was Mary Dawes Tuckniss part of this group?

Hi George, Congratulations! on your second term. Hope you bring an end to the trouble in the middle east soon. America will never get over 9/11, pray God it never happens again. We must forgive sometime think of all the Innocent civilians and children that have suffered because of it. There must be lots of servicemens families who's hearts ache each day there dad's and mum's are there. Lets hope they will return as stronger americans.

would anyone have any insight on whether and where there might exist plans or drawings for the construction and/or rehabilitation of the philadelphia fire department firehouse constructed in 1893, known as the engine company #3 at 117 Queen st., philadelphia, pa 19147, attributed architect: john windrim; altered inside by phillip m. johnson. the sight: 117 Queen St. hosted two volunteer fire departments known as the Weccacoe Engine Co #9 or 19. (the "1"representing its battalion designation.) I am not focusing on pre-1893 firehouses on that site. Previous exploration has included Phil. Archives, Historic Commision, Historic Society, HABS, Free Library, Fire Museum on 2nd. St. Thank-you for your attention....steve

We need to stop the ban of "Forgotten Founders Book"! Thomas Jefferson was not the founder of the Declaration of Independence, He took the concept from the Iroquiose Confederacy. I would like to know where American Indians did not have a part in founding this country? We existed here long before any white europeans or black slaves ever arrived.

What ever you do, go and see Fort McHenry it's an impressive site.The U.S. flag that flies there is the largest flag in the U.S.ofA. it's 42 feet by 30 feet made of nylon and it takes a 17 MPH wind to unflurl it. The noise it makes is impressive

Lt Cmdr. L. Stuart Taylor, Great great Grandson of US Marine Edward W. Taylor, has published his GGGrandfather's journal, "Pacific Ocean Campaign 1842-1844" while serving aboard the frigate USS UNITED STATES, First Ship of the United States Navy. This book compliments Herman Melville's "White Jacket" and I recommend it as educational material. Cpl. Taylor and Melville knew each other on board the frigate. For more information please contact me at: USSUNITEDSTATES@Yahoo.com I have the honor to be at your service.

I vistied this site because I am researching my genealogy. A "Robert Hopkins" was my ancestor. he served in 1794 as a sergeant in the PA Insurrection. I beleive he was a disowned Quaker. I am tryign to find out hwo hsi father was and if he might ahve served int he Revolution 20years before. I ahve some old letters by an Abraham Tuckniss to his sister Mary that date from 1785 in Philadelphia. So, based on these clues, I am trying to go backward in time. I know exactly who my g g grandad was-- Robert Hopkins,b.1797. And I know his dad by the same nae served in the Whiskey Rebellion of 1797 so I am trying to learn more about him and his ancestors. I fanyone has a clue, I'd appreciate tips!

Thomas P. Doughty, Sr. Citizen 62 years of age and retired [09-17-2004]
I just read a question from someone wanting to know who was the first Doughty in the New World. I think that it was Edward Doty of the Mayflower. His name was Doughty in England. His nephew and his wife Rev Francis Doughty and wife, Bridgett Stone Doughty came to Mass. from England in l638. They lived in Mass., N.Y. and Eastern Virginia. They had three sons named Doughty. I think they were the first. I am trying to find out a direct Authentic connection between the Rev. Francis Doughty and the Eastern Shores of Virginia Doughty's from which I came. If I can make an authentic connection I will have my family name line of Doughty from around l500 in old England until this present date. If any of you New York Doughties from Francis, Jr. or Alias can make the authentic connection, please contact me. Thanks, Tom Doughty, Charleston, S.C.

Thanks for all of your support!
Contrary to erroneous and widespread belief, to date there is only one USS UNITED STATES Foundation. This foundation represents the frigate USS UNITED STATES, First Ship of the United States Navy. The prefix USS has always been attached to federal ships since the Acts of Congress of 1794, Provisions for Naval Armament, as they have been and are in the United States Navy. The ocean liner SS UNITED STATES (Steam Ship) has never had a prefix USS. However, to my knowledge and in all fairness, there had been plans to convert the liner SS UNITED STATES to a hospital ship for the United States Navy. The name USS UNITED STATES for the ocean liner was proposed, but the plan never materialized. Therefore the ocean liner is correctly called SS UNITED STATES and the name USS UNITED STATES for the ocean liner is a false representation. The foundation for the ocean liner UNITED STATES is correctly called the SS UNITED STATES Foundation and not the USS UNITED STATES Foundation. I’m not sure why the mix up occurred, or why it continues to this day. It could possibly be that, until now, there has been no representation for the frigate. It could be that some people are not aware that the designation USS refers only to Federal ships. The USS UNITED STATES Foundation primarily represents the frigate USS UNITED STATES. It may later encompass any and all Federal ships called USS UNITED STATES past, present, and future. Until then it is primarily representing the frigate. On a personal note, I wish the very best success to the SS UNITED STATES Foundation for their untiring efforts to save the ocean liner. I have seen the ship several times at a distance and have been in communications with them on several occasions. A good paint job could help her appearance and I hope she can, once again, sail across the Atlantic. I have a special fondness for all the ships called UNITED STATES. If the reader can find a way to help support her I endorse the effort. For information on the frigate USS UNITED STATES Foundation please contact me at USSUNITEDSTATES@Yahoo.com I have the honor to be at your service.

During a discussion about our gov't and foreign policy the Monroe Doctrine came to mind. I have printed this and book marked this site for further reference. We have strayed from many of the basic principles of Democracy, in my opinion, and this text is only one of many that demonstrate my belief. Thank You for having this available. Mike Schindler

I would like to know if the buildings built for the 1876 centennial are still in existence, i.e. Horticultural Hall, Rhode Island house, etc? My very good friend,who is 88 years old lived in the Rhode Island house until approximately 1932. She really would like to know anything we can find out about them. She is now living in Virginia. I neglected to say they were in Fairmount Park. Thank you for your help, MAAS

I am proud to inform you I was able to Get FL Rep Mark Foley to enter honor Founding Father Robert Morris in the 105h Congressional Record for financing the revolution for George Washington and saving us from being British at request of a Morris descendant, Gladys Hungling, Sebring, FL> Foley discovered Arhives records to show Morris borrowed on his own property and many colonies never paid him back and the depression that followed the treaty made him suffer greater losses. But George Washington and Jefferson died trying to get him honored as the man who saved the revoluttion so I am proud I was able to get Rep Foley to do that in Sebring, Fl and sent us a copy of the new Congressional Record I gave Gladys Hungling but a copy could be obtained if desired from the Capitol Hill Office of Foley. It is very rewarding to set the record straight even though it ook over 220 years to do that and Hungling is his great, great, great etc grand daughter friend of mine, now age 79, in Sebring, FL I can be reached at 850-576-3201 to verify this. Thank you. Friends call me the spirit of 1776 and I plan a historic site of my own for a library on tne evolution and history of American Housing etc. This has been alabor of love for me...over 40 years.

My maiden name is Barry. Although Commodore Barry had no children, we have always liked to pretend that we are his descendants. It is believed that he is descended from a junior son of one of the Barrys of Olethan and Buttevant; that his immediate family drifted into county Wexford from Barry's Country, county Cork, in pursuit of their activities in sea faring. We were thrilled to see his statue along the waterfront at Wexford in 1976

I have interest in the patriot Peter Whiteside (an associate of Robert Morris)and his family.My understanding is that Peter (and his brother James) put shoes on the bare feet of our Continential Army at Valley Forge and that later Peter financed the Louisiana Convention with his own money. They were catholics who attended at St. Mary's and were a family of four brothers.I have just come upon an image of a sampler produced at the Mrash School of Philadelphia by one of these Whitesides but can find no Internet records of the Marsh School. Can you help ?

I still have a great interest in the American Civil War. I have been reading a biography of Ulysses S. Grant. I think Abraham Lincoln was a great man of his age. Now in our own time, I think we need to think about other ways of making our country safe than fighting wars in the Middle East. President Bush is wasting the country's money on this war on terror and also for spending a lot of it on homeland security. Our fellow Americans are dying every day in Iraq, fighting to keep our country safe from terrrorists. I think now would be a good time to think about other ways to keep our country safe than fighting a war. I hope we can force Bush to lose the election.

I kind of would like to know about the late presidents John Tyler, WM Henry Harrison and possibly all of the the era of that time period. For some reason (and I never was big on history when I grew up) I would like to compare the ways of life in the US government then with todays style of life and government.

Great site..I enjoyed it a lot..BTW Its the first time I'm posting my comments on a public place.
One of America's greatest tragedies is that so many have forgotten the true meaning of patriotism. Patriotism is not blindly following a leader because he says it's true and you should not question him. True patriotism is to always question a leaders motives and be ready to critisize anything that seems to diminish the rights of all people and that tramples on our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Anything less is to accept ultimate tyranny and a regime that accepts only it's interpretation as the model for our country. Historically, millions have died by because they have accepted the definitions of freedom as put forth by their assumed leader.

Looking at it now, not only do I appreciate it, but since I am now in Florida, it made me a little homesick. I hate when people trash Phildelphia. Its a WONDERFUL city.

I was never interested in history of any kind when I was a kid. Now that I'm a parent and homeschooling my 14 year old son, I love history and wish I would have paid attention in class! I enjoy your website and use it often! I am learning more now than I ever have. My son is even learning more about our nation's history than his friends in public school. Knowing more about our nation's history has made me more patriotic and has influnced my son to love our country and trust our leaders!
I listened to David Barton yesterday on WCRF radio in Ohio. I'm in my late 50's and until yesterday didn't realize how much I don't know about my country. I knew that the country was founded on Christian principles but didn't know that 27 of the signers of the Declaration of Independence had gone to seminary school and the importance of their faith and values in founding this country. When you think of all these men did, without benefit of "telephones, tv, or the internet" and what brilliant documents they left for future generations, how can anyone not believe that they were not guided and blessed by God and given the wisdom needed to found these United States of America. What I am sure about is how ashamed they would be of how far we, as a Christian nation, have fallen and how we have let our courts and some elected representatives twist and misinterpret the founders words in order to be politically correct today. All of us need to fall on our knees before God and beg for mercy, wisdom and strength to find and elect Godly men and women to bring our country back our basic Godly beliefs and virtues. Let's pray that on this July 4th we follow our forward thinking founding fathers and our current President and restore America to greatness. Thanks for this website and God Bless America.

Can anyone tell me how long the US flag will stay at half staff commemorating Pres Reagan? I know is must have been decreed, but can't find it anywhere and thought it was a shame that the symbol of our great country had to be flow at half staff through the day that was set aside to honor it (FlagDay, June 14th)...

I come back to this site every now and then to place news on my genealogy findings. I just want all those that are interested in Whelchel Family History to know that I'am still searching and my book will get done sooner or later.

Hey, everybody, I have a question that needs answering. In 1913, at Pearl Harbor, the first dry dock built there exploded with tremendous force. The accident killed 7 people. After a year a investigation, the Navy found nothing wrong with the construction of the dock nor any scientific conclusions. "What caused this blast?" is my question.

This site is great but it needs the meanings of the colors on the flag.
Sara, 11 [06-07-2004]
On the flag rules and regulations webpage, it is noted that it is acceptable to fly a(n) historic flag ... that with less than 50 stars. It may be noteworthy to add that US flags with less than 50 stars (e.g. WWII 48 Stars, 1776 13 stars, etc.) are considererd "pennants" and not US flags, and therefore are not relegated by those rules governing US flags. Thanks. W. Jones

George Washington spent the night in my grandfather's barn. Jesse Brinkley on White Marsh Rd., Suffolk, Va. My grandfather's land extended into the Dismal Swamp. I would love to have a list of Soldiers that served in the Revolunary War. How far did Washington go into Virginia. I am from Virginia and I visited my grandfather's home many a time and there is a sign stating the Site on the property. I just love this website. Thank you and all your effort and work. God Bless America

I was reading the information you have posted in a Q&A formate regarding the the display of the American Flag. I have a question to ad to it. The Boy Scouts of America have the US flag displayed on their uniform on the right sholder and the blue field is positioned to the back of the shoulder. this does not follow the code you have publised. Who is right? Please let me know Thanks
Scott Paddack [06-02-2004]
Inside a building, on which side of the entrance should the US flag be displayed? To the right of the person entering or leaving the building? Thanks.

Maria L. Martinez, 42 yrs.old, teacher, NJ resident [06-02-2004]
This is an excellent resource for all information about US history. However, It would be very helpful if you could also find events by their dates. If that were possible students would then be able to make connections and learn what was happening at the same time in different parts of the country and world.
