Alexis, 13,Beaumont,TX [04-27-2007]

Somewhere in the recesses of my brain, I seem to remember that the Star Spangled Banner was set to it's present music and adopoted as our National Anthm in 1933, competing with Irving Berlin's God Bless America. If this is incorrect. please let me know. Also my fervent hope is that we will start singing the last verse of this poem as the first verse begs the issue DOES IT STILL WAVE, while the last shows that IT STILL WAVES.

Alley, Did you know, 57 men signed the Declaration of independence! A lot huh! [04-24-2007]

My G,G,G, grandfather, Dr. Ellwood Harvey, was one of the six men (along with Graceallen Lewis) to Dr. Bartholomew Fussel's meeting in 1846 that inspired the Female Medical College of Pennsylvania. He joined the college in 1852 as a professor and helped to keep it going when female doctors were no very popular with many people (especially male doctors). Ellwood was also the family physician for William Still, the famous abolitionist. I think it was through Still that Ellwood heard about a slave girl, Anna Maria Weems, hiding out in Washington DC. He met her in front of the White House where she was dressed as a boy and helped her escape to Philly then NYC. You can read about it in either Elisa Carbone's book, Stealing Freedom, or Lorene Cary's book, Free. He is the man called "Doctor H" mentioned in William Still's book. With the $300 reward money he received Ellwood bought the college their first dissection mannequin. If you go to the Walt Whitman House in Camden one of their two first editions of Leaves of Grass belonged to Ellwood. He evidently got it at Fowler and Well's bookstore on Arch St., the same block as the Female Medical College. Check out the freebie website (Yahoo makes you sign up) I started on Ellwood Harvey.

I thought this sight was an information sight.That does not matter though but, what bugs me is that they do not answer your questions.They seem to just give you information on the topic you are researching.For instance I was doing the Liberty Bell for College and I asked a question I am not sure what but the sight gave me no info on that.Good information on Liberty Bell mind you but bad on my question.All and all I found the site a disapointment to me but, elsewhere I am sure others could find it SUPER but all and all I give it 3 out of 10 stars.Thank you for trying to make a good site ushistory.org you work well with othere

Hi, im am now the family historian since my late mother died christmas 2004. Her great grandfather was born in Frankford in the county of Philadelphia in the state of Pennsylvania, USA in 1810. His name was Samuel Thrasher Lyons and by 1855, he left as Dr. and Surgeon in charge to the Panama railroad and then he left to live and settle in Australia. His parents were Solomon Lyons a Soldier, and eventually a Gentleman owning Race and Vine Streets in Philadelphia City and all the land down the River Schullkill starting at the river Delaware. I know Solomon Lyons was dead by 1812 in the Orleans war in 1812 as from the 1780's when he arrived in the USA he was a Soldier aginst the British rule. He had 4 sons Benjamin, Moses, Zaligman and Samuel and a daughter, Rachel. Zaligman moved to Clinton, East Feliciana(once spanish territory) and practised as a Lawyer and Attorney and my 2nd great grandfather lived with Zaligman, wife and kids and practised as a Doctor and Surgeon. from 1828 to 1872 Doctor Samuel Thrasher Lyons saved many lives of people of every race, colour or creed, just people trying to support themselves, their wives and children and feel that they could do a wee bit more that just survive. Any information of my 2nd and 3rd great grandparents would really appreciated as i believe Solomon, ended up a Gentleman, may be written about in some book in Philadelphia or Frankford in Philadelphia county. Thanks,

For those that believe they are decendents of Commodore John Barry: Barry was married twice but had no children in either marriage. Also, in fairness there were possibly two persons equal in the formation of the American Navy, but our country had two navies: the Continental or Colonial Navy, and the United States Federal Navy. Barry was the Father of the United States Navy. It seems that Barry and John Paul (Jones) shared the founding of the American Navy. Talk about spliting hairs... USSUNITEDSTATES@Yahoo.com Edward C.

My groth was & is the historic powder mill vally in havertown, I am trying to recruite stewards of history to take the area along the cobbs creeka.k.a. karakung stream for a living historty program to depict life not only about the manufacture of black gun powdeer " second only to dupont mills we have a powder magazine (storge) for gun powder that exploded & was seen as far as centre city! it is roofless& needs floor, next to it there is a 1940's type garage attached to another colonial foundation missing a roof also & finally a very old home t5hat can be cleaned,painted& used for confrenceses, seminars,and musum & bed & breakfast . these sites are located within feet to the lawrence cabin, brought to the valley in 1960 ans next to the nitre hall, mansion of thepowder master, but unfortunatly people just assume these old buiidings will always be there,as we year by year loose another piece of treasure, So that is whyI'm attemopting to create the powder mill valley historic district. so if any one who is intrested in begining with me, please forward my EM; transmission3 @ aol.com type pmvhd/history in headline! love & thanks

I am a descendent of Geroge Ross, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. While visiting Philadelphia several years ago I was given a private tour of Christ Church cemetery and saw his gravesite along with the graves of many other brave people who fought for our country's independence. It was a wonderful experience to walk the same streets some of my illustrious ancestors walked. It made me proud to be an American. Now if only I could find out more about George Ross' and his wife Ann Lawler's offspring (2 sons and a daughter) HELP!

My hobby is metel detecting,Colonial sites and other places of interest often mention many outdoor activities,but never mention weather metel detecting is allowed.Metel detecting is the use of a metel detector to search for old lost items such as coins,buttons,etc. The only tool used is a small 3" trowel to recover items, Holes are always filled and all trash removed leaving little to no sign anything was removed from ground at all.

This is about the LOVE park issue, what you guys are doing is wrong, banning people from skateboarding there doesn't do anything to the community. Have you guys ever seen some of these videos that concern LOVE park. They interview people from every race and gender and ask them wether or not skateboarding should be banned. Want to know what the answer always is? They always say no! I believe that skateboarding has this image that skateboarders are low life kids who drop out of school and sell/do drugs and steal to make their living. This is not true. I am in "above-level" classes in my school and I always get questions about if I do drugs or steal my way to happiness, and all i say is "look at me now." Like I said banning kids from skateboarding at LOVE park has contributed any to the city of Philedelphia. When the X-Games came to LOVE park, you guys made 80 million dollars in tourist profits! Why would something like that ever convince you to stop that?? I just don't understand, we are just America's youth trying to live our life in the way that we see is the most fun. I recently went to Philly just to see LOVE park. It is a skateboarding landmark and that will never change. I got to skateboard there, and the feeling of just rolling on the smooth ground, was just unexplainbale. I would give anything for LOVE park to be re-opened and for the public youth of skateboarders could return and enjoy what we have there. So please, take this into consideration, and FREE LOVE PARK!
