I didn't know that a Veterans Party existed. Are you registered in Illinois? I have been a life long Republican (of conservative bent), but the last few years have just about persuaded me to drop my Republican affiliation. If President Bush is a conservative, would someone point out to me where? I think it was Mark Twain who once said (loosely paraphrased): "He is a crooked politician. But, that is a redundancy." I voted for Bush twice; I regret the second vote. I love the America that used to be. I am as patriotic as they come and I still get moist eyes when our flag is flying. God bless America and God protect our young men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan.

My mother Mary Kirk Nicholson was born in Philadelphia in 1890 as was her mother Emily Harrison West in 1858. I believe that my grandfather,Henry H. West, also is a Philadelphia native. The Philadelphia Free Library has been very helpful in the past.

jen, 14.. arizona [10-27-2005]
i thought that i should disclose something that i have learned in my small time on this earth 17 years to be exact i have learned as a american (born an bread) that patriotism and nationalism are what we work on everyone says big buissnes i say yes in our economy but our morale and spirituallity towards our soldiers and other americans are unrivaled yes there are americans in this world that dont want the war in iraq and as americans they are free to say how they feel it is my belief and some beliefs of others i know that just because the soldiers fight in Iraq and do what they are ordered to do doesnt mean that to be an american soldier you have to belive in our fighting i see all the time solldiers coming back from Iraq and being paraded around and i have to smile because those soldiers deserve some recognition there was no recognition for the vietnam soldiers i say no recognition but i mean not enough no were near what they deserve i just thought that i a u.s history site like tthis i could find the men and woman who fought in vietnams name in a list to there self because they are americans and are part of american history just as ww2 soldiers and ww1 soldiers sincerly brandon P stilt

I am doing a report on Ben Franklin for a school assignment.I think he is a great guy.Espically since he found out electricity. I am so happy.Everybody thinks that he is not a hero. But if they would read their Social Studies textbook more often they would know more about him. At least I know more right now about Ben Franklin than I ever did.

Philadelphia . The greatest and one of the most historic if not the the most historis city in the country. The city of brotherly love, is the best ame for this city. The park rangers here, are the most considerate,and helpful. I was doing a school history project,and the rangers gave me a private tour,and answered each and every queation i had. Philly rocks.

Just learned that JACOB DERRY was buried at the 1st Reformed Church in Philadelphia on 26 July 1775 by Casper Weyburg. Exciting genealogical research information for me! Is your cemetery located next to the church? What a fantastic testimony to know your church family is still thriving!

Great site! I especially enjoyed the oddities tour. Here are a few points of interest from Clark Park in West Phila that I'd like to nominate for inclusion: We have a field stone from the Gettysburg Battlefield beside Baltimore Ave between 43rd and 44th. Also, the only known statue of Charles Dickens in the world is in Clark Park near 43rd and Chester. We hold a Veteran Memorial at the Gettysburg Stone each year as well as a Dickens birthday celebration. Check out our website: http://www.clarkpark.info/AboutClarkPark.html

I do not think that a person directly involved in an issue can be honest. Honesty can only come with being neutral. My research is proving that prejudice and nationism can contaminate historical data.

I really liked the website. I thought it was really informative and motivating to find out more about history in general. Thank you for creating such a great site. Whoever did must be a really talented designer to have thought of a website that can be helpful and fun to look at at the same time. I'm using your website as an example on my History project at school. Thanks again!

Dink's Genealogy Memorial Museum is real; a lot of people have asked me if the WHELCHEL MUSEUM is real. I have collected photos of several Whelchel Families that are related to the Whelchel families of Francis and Anne STOCKTON Whelchel. These families are from all over the United States. The lines criss cross through AMERICAN HISTORY from before the REVOLUTIONARY WAR. Although some documents are not yet proven I have found the in-laws and the out-laws of many of The Whelchels from the five Whelchel men from the REVOLUTIONARY WAR. There is some History still not proven on the many lines but most of my family has been researched by reading books, bibles, old genealogy records, cemeteries, PICTURES. There are rumors that the history is not real. I've spent 13 years solid researching many places and states for clues. Thanks for writing this in your Guestbook.

I was search for the date that Thomas Holme layed out the city for Wm. Penn. I was able to do so. Reasoning being,the Ga. travel guide said that Savannah was the first planned city in America. Savannah was founded in 1733 about 80 years after Philadelphia. So if anyone knows when Philadelphia was layed out please post.

My seven year old son wanted to look for information about other tribes of this Nation. Your site was the first we tried. And found nothing. He asked me, "Momma where are we at?" And now I ask the same of you. Are we, Native Americans, not an intrinsic, inherent part of this great country's history? You tell us.

Editor responded with your website, then Betsy's flagstar.I love it, and your site. Kids and I will spend a lot of time here.

As a proud Army brat, I am dismayed at the number of people who neither know, nor understand, the Articles of Confederation, the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution,The Gettysburg Address, and other important documents that have helped shape this great naion of ours. Having been born in Austria, having lived in Argentina, and traveled the world, I have come to realize that this really is the greatest nation, but we have SO MUCH to learn. This begs the question, do you, as an organization, or individually, go out and teach any of these? People I speak with have no understanding of the Bill of Rights, the various Amendmends to the Constituion, what an Unjust War is, and so on. We need to bring these into the class rooms, both at the elementary/high school levels as well as the collegiate level. Does it take someone like me, born over seas, English not her first language, to understand, appreciate, and love this great land? I could go on, but I'll stop while I'm ahead.

I really injoyed looking at this website.The movie National Treasure really moved me to get a little more involed in history.I never really cared about it until now,this movie came out it really opened my eyes about history.I even done research on the Liberty Bell & about the Pass and Stow how it got discovered.I think this really opened some people's eyes if they can see it and understand it a little bit more,people might get more involed within history.My personal opinon about this intersting and Very Educational website,it will inspire kids to be more intersted about looking for fcats on history.Thankyou for inspiring people to vist this lovely website.
