I am a re-inactor who attends events in the southeast for the Revolutionary War Period. I am a direct decendent of Samuel Sharp who served at Guilford Courthouse and Cowpens during the revolution. I am facinated with the history of this period and applaud your efforts to keep it alive. Unfortunately, most americans do not know the hardships and sacrifices made by those who helped found our nation. I appreciate your service to our Country. Huzzah! Tony DeVault

melanie kelly, philadelphia [09-18-2006]

I really like Sly, I thought it was a nice gesture on his part to let us have the statue..I am mortified by the Art Museums attitude..they rejected it,because it was some kind of testment to Sly's ego..NO WAY! It was in front of the sports complex,,and now its back infront of the Art Museum..It should never have left..How many Italian statues are there in Philly? None, only this one..I wish I could have it in front of my house..I would feel very proud..I should feel glad, that they display Italian renaissance work inside the building...That's my take on it anyway.

billy, im overweight [08-29-2006]

I never thought much about history until I scored perfectly in it in PSAT's, and other tests. I have no idea why I knew so much history, but apparently I did. On Philadephia and the whole history of Philadelphia; the oldest part of Philadelphia is actually South Philadelphia. From the church, my church, Gloria Dei [Old Swedes], where the Continental Congress met, to where they stayed, all of this was in South Philadelphia. Everything south of Market Street was then South Philadelphia and to use old families here it still is. The Founders often had a sort of Beef N Beer at the church and we still do on occassion. Breweries were more inportant to the founding of this country than the simple symbols, such as Betsy's flag, and the motto's like United We Stand, and We The People. And everything from the original Wicaco through New Sweden through New London and finally Philadelphia, came out of Wicaco, a Lenape word meaning "The Peaceful Place," which is South Philadelphia. Center City and other parts of the city have no claim whatsoever to the founding of the United States of America, although they most often spin things to make it look as if the Market Street and other Center City shipping business offices did, they simply didn't. They closed shop at the end of the day and were not open on weekends nor at the time the Continental Congress met most often. The point is really that American History has very little to do with all of the hype about Center City, Independence Mall, and points north, and it has all to do with South Philadelphia, Wicaco, where nearly all of the Founding Fathers either lived or lodged. I've walked on their graves, gone to their churches, and have studied them a great deal since school days. I'm even related to quite a few. But the real point is that South Philadelphia is where this country started and no where else. When the professors and archaeologists finally get over their blindness and begin to research South Philadelphia, as I have done, they will clearly see that South Philadelphia is the birthplace of the United States of America. Truth Will Out!

Information and article on John Barry, father of the American Navy is great. JFK had his sword in the Oval Office -- JFK's grandparents on both sides) were from Co. Wexford, Ireland. In the summer of 1963 my Grandfather piloted an American Destroyer into Wexford Harbour, to coindice with JFK's laying of a commemorative wreath at John Barry's statue.

It wasnt untill a few years ago that I had started to appreciate the history of the city as I do now. It took me walking around the city after work to really "feel" the city and tours that are put on by once upon a nation do a great job in developing this interest.
edward krumm, I am 37 born in Phila. live in bucks county. Great grandfather molded William Penn statue [08-04-2006]

I found your infomation on one of my forfathers Commadore John Barry to be very informative. Sad to say, it seems that the title of "Father of the American Navy" that should be Commadore Barry's has now be given to John Paul Jones. I heard this on the History Channel and came to your site to see if it was true. I am sad to see that History is not told fully any longer or that a man like Commadore Barry is given no credit for all that he did for our country.

Hi, My husband is 85 years old and we were going through a file of old stock certicates when I came across a very old looking bank note. Decided to type it in on the internet and came up with your page. It is the 8894 from 1840 Bank of the United States. Exactly like the one you show. Perhaps my husband's mother bought it as a suvenior when she and her husband were lobbist for the timber industry here in Oregon J. Martin

My good friend, Harvey Lynch, is related to Commander Barry through his mother's side (Amelia Ann Barry-Lynch) From what I've read, it must be through one of his siblings, as he did not have any children of his own. Harvey Lynch has a painted portrait of Commander John Barry wich has been in the family as long as he has known--the portrait hung in his grandfather's house in the Oakland Hills. It had been crated from 1953-2003 when Harvey's parents passed away and is now in his possession. He will be auctioning it at the end of July somewhere in Maine. The people who are handling the painting had said there was no other portrait of Commander Barry known to exist--only the statue outside independance hall. Your writings state otherwise. Do you know where I could find more information on this painting by Gilbert Stuart (1801)? This was a wonderful, well-done, article by the way and now that I've discovered this site, I look forward to learning more about our Greats in history.

When I was a young boy my adopted grandfather Mathew Smith brought me to Philadelphia to visit friends and see te historic sites. One of my most memorable moments was when I joined him and members of the Bell Ringers Association and climbed the stairs to the bell tower at night. I believe the occasion was new year's eve. My sister and I stood behind the huge clock face in Independence hall. I remember being surprised at how small the motor seemed in comparison to the clock. I also climbed the stairs from the clock fact and stuck my head into the bell tower. I will never forget that moment. Paul Champanier

Check out this entry for August 3rd 1885- "Heavy rains at intervals, with sharp lightning and thunder from 11.35 A. M. to 9:50 P.M. About 3.30 P.M. a tornado of great force crossed the river Delaware from Gloucester Point. Three large buildings in the Neck at the Pennsylvania salt-works were entirely prostrated, and other property in the neighborhood was damaged. The course of the wind was nearly north by east. The tornado crossed the Delaware to New Jersey. The steamboat Major Reybold, of the Salem Line, and the Peerless ferry-boat, of Gloucester line, were struck by it in the river, had all their upper works, pilot houses and cabins carried away, and the pilot of the Reybold was drowned...mre"

Tressa Hoffman appears on the 1870 Federal Census in Bridesburg, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania (82nd District, 25th Ward). She is listed as residing with her two children Frederick (abt. 1864) and Louisa (abt. 1858). Tressa's husband is presumed also to be "Frederick". Legend has it there were 17 Fredericks. Records confirm the existance of six.

I really enjoyed reading the facts that were written about the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier! It is truely unbeleivable that people do not know the facts about this Tomb even though it has respect from every American Heart.

I've noticed that a couple of people have already asked you about a bank note #8894 that reads: The Bank of the United States promises to pay to G.W. Fairman or order One Thousand Dollars in New York, Philadelphia, Dec. 15th, 1840. I too have had one of these in my possession for over 30 years. My dad carried it in his wallet for years before that. What exactly is it, and is there any value? I couldn't find your answer to them. Thank you for any help. Jeanne

Visited the museum today and was astonished at the wealth of information available and the new and innovative ways of presenting the material as if the visitor is part of the whole scene and our ancestors are there with us and talking to us.

I am proud to be an american. I have being a woman had many names. Only here do we have the freedom of choice, in our government through voting, in religion, speech, who we wish to have for a partner. What schools our children attend, how we live, work and grow. Our country is a melting pot and opens it's arms to all people. It only ask's taht you come in here on legal terms, so that all those who have done so before you will see that you too want to proudly cll yourself an American.

My search takes me to a Thomas Reed who was born in Brookhaven Ms. to Elias Sargent Reed and Mallie Reed who were both school teachers in the early years of the 1900's also Elias was a professor at Brookhaven Junior High School for a number of years. One of his sons Thomas Reed who was born in Brookhaven later served in the House of Representatives for 18 in the State of Alamba, whith much success their, also the Brookhaven Ms. AME Church celebrated a Thomas Reed day in his home town of Brookhaven. Thomas is now deceased and as of November 5, 2005 a 24 hour ambulatory care clinic was name in his honor. Any information that you can help me to find on Thomas would be most appreciative. Thank you and god bless. Nellie

It's funny, I found this place looking for some history. My band played Love Plaza on the very first Pretzel and Hoagie Day in the very early 1970's. The band was The BBC. I think there were 20,000 people at that Be-In and the national tv networks. But Wawa seems to think it thought up Hoagie Day. Not so. Edmund Bacon built a great park cattycorner to City Hall. They say I look like Kevin Bacon, his son, but I don't really see it. However, I do know that it is already an historic park and Kevin should say something about why his dad thought it up. It's just that someone keeps hiding the history somewhere. The whole thing was about celebrating the City where the United States was founded, and that park represented the modern day Independence Hall and a town meeting like in the old days of 1775-1789. History isn't in books, it's in living it.

I'm attempting to determine if I have stumbled across an early carte-de-vista of John Wilkes Booth. I understand that he was at the Arch St Theatre in Philadelphia in the late 1850's as a young man. The photo was taken by a photographer located at 918 Spring Garden St. The subject has a full beard but hair line and features are like Mr Booth. I can email copy if you are interested. If you know of a better web site to obtain information, I'd like to know what it is.

Please look up Mary Pickersgill. She sewed the original American Flag. This can be confirmed by going to the Smithsonian Institute yourself or go to the Smithsonian Web Site. All the text books are wrong. Betsy Ross's grandson made up a great story and he was an incredible P.R. man. Good luck in your research.

Thank you for producing a comprehensive work about COmmodore John Barry. I have fought for years in my academic life for John Barry to gain the recognition that he deserves. Even one of my Colonial AMerican History professor, who spent/spends considerable amount of time in front of the statue, knew little of Barry. Thank you.

The tomb is a place that shows that there was so much killing and death that we dont even know who died. The person whom is burried under the tomb is unknown, but i think if we knew who it was it wouldnt mean as much to us to no that so many people died right in front of out eyes

I have come into papers re: Family history, placing John Rudderow (Rudrow, Rhythery) As an early arrival in Philadelphia reportedly sent as the crown surveyor to oversee the survey of the lands to become Philadelphia. He reportedly arrived when only one house was standing. On teh unexpected arrival of more family (the stiles) from Wales he relocated to NJ and owned a large tract of land there the pensauken/merchantville area where Rudderow Ave still exists today. My Father is also John Rudderow and I was wondering if there is any official mention of him anywhere in Philadelphia history. Thank you, Sandra Nesbitt
