I regretfully did not pay much attention to history as I was growing up. Now I feel the need to know our great country got to be that way, and why there is such a threat to its existence today.

I had a front row seat It was a beautiful Sunday morning when the most violent act of treachery in the history of wars occurred. My friend and I were on a week-end pass in Honolulu after a strict month of security on bass. That Sunday morning,the Inn keeper awoke us,"Yelling the Japs are bombing Pearl Harbor". We hurriedly left searching for a cab to return to our base. On our way toward the harbor,we saw the second wave of the Japanese planes coming in for their kill. The main highway ran along the harbor which became unpassable with cars and bewildered people not knowing what was happening.While our cab also added to the confusion,we sat and watched the real enemy planes bombing the ships and strafing sailors in flaming water while the rescue boats were plucking sailors out of the water some survived others failed the last monet.The smoke looked so furious with flames licking the sky. Sailors on shore in horror with tears in their eyes unable to help their shipmates.Other sailors were fighting to save their ship and themselves. We could see sailors crossing hand over hand by rope from ship to ship,some dropped into the flaming water and never came up. The enemy planes continued strafing and they finally disappeared and the horror of destruction only remained. A few ships were still rolling over from the battering they encountered and the singeing smell was horrifing. I don't think any one who was there that is still alive will ever forget it,even tho they were on shore

Nite before Pearl Harbor Attack A rich Japanese business man on the Island threw a Saturday night party for the U.S.Naval brass at his night club,which lasted into the wee hours of the morning assuming that the officers would not be up early Sunday. In downtown Honolulu on that night free beer was served to all enlisted men assuming they would be in no shape to perform their duties the next day.(I know I was there) Young Japanese girls who regularly babysat on Saturday nite did not take any jobs around Ford Island or Honolulu that evening. And an ad in a Honolulu newspaper told of a Big weekend sale of fabric"by the yard" at a local store. That was a signal to the Japanese residents of the Island to stay away from Pearl Harbor yard.

My grandmother was raised in Swarthmore in the early 1900's. One branch of her mother's family (Jan Luken) was on original founding family of Germantown, in the late 1600's. A branch of my grandfather's family arrived in New Jersey in the early 1700's. Isaac Quigley had 3 younger brothers and a nephew who all fought in the Revolutionary War. Isaac, who was in his 50's at the time, was in the Quartermaster Corp of New Jersey. My husband's family settled in Hagerstown, Maryland, in the 1700's, when they thought they were in Pennsylvania. My dad's parents both ended up in Idaho, where they met and married. My husband and I met in Idaho, where we met and married. I find it fascinating to think how closely our ancestors were to each other, and yet in doing genealogy research it doesn't appear that there were any early connections. Both my children graduated from colleges in PA, so we've had terrific opportunities to travel for visits, site seeing and genealogical research. What a wonderful, beautiful part of the country. I especially appreciate the thorough records the early settlers (specifically the Quakers) kept, and the care their descendants have taken to preserve and make available so many of them. Over the past several years of visiting and learning, I have truly come to appreciate the sacrifice our ancestors made in fighting for independence. The Founding Fathers were truly farsighted individuals with thoughful ideas for the foundations of our country. May we all be worthy of their sacrifices.

I remember The Pearl Harbor Attack The Pearl Harbor Attack was in the Imperial of Japanese plan a decade before 1941. In 1932 ten years before the attack, a question appeared on the Japanese Naval Academy final exam,"how would you carry out an attack on Pearl Harebor?" With hundreds of various suggestions from young fertile minds,not one came up with the strategy used. In 1932,Admiral Henry Yarnell,Commander of the Pearl Harbor Fleet decided to demonstrate the vulnerability of the harbor. He slipped in two aircraft carriers in close from the Northwestern route to the Island of Oahu and launched 152 aircrafts which theoretically could have sunk most of the ships at anchor and destroyed all aircrafts on the ground. In 1938.Admiral Ernest King,Commander of the fleet then,also,demonstrated the vulnerability of the harbor. The Japanese Attache in Honolulu read of the exercise and were so impressed that they sent a dispatch to Tokyo. In the Fall of 1941,a Japanese cruise ship arrived in Honolulu.Four members of the crew were posing as stewards,they were really officers in the Japanese Navy,two submarine experts,two surface ship and air operation experts. If we were more suspicious at the time, we would have wondered why that ship had taken the icy Northwestern route to Oahu.Today, we know the four Japanese Navalexperts were testing a plan a plan the Japanese were counting on for almost ten years. The experts sighted neither aircrafts or ships in the icy Northwestern route. The experts disguised as stewards took plenty of shore leave,they saw the sights,took plenty of pictures,spoke to the natives and even took tourists plane rides over Pearl Harbor and more snapshots.The Japanese Consulates gave them maps of Pearl Harbor and military airfields and to make sure they purchased aerial pictures of Pearl Harbor,military airfields and views of the battleships near Ford Island. Returning to Japan the officers were confident the plan they had for a decade was the right one. And were we surprised! The Japanese clobbered Pearl Harbor in style,dropped their bombs and fled,leaving it torn and bleeding. It was not Admiral Yamamoto's brilliant strategy as known worldwide.. We showed them how to do it.............

You are lame
Chianne, 13 [04-07-2009]

First of all this site and those like it are a gift to real history lovers...My mom got me hooked on history when I was younger by just listening to my different grandparents tell the stories of their parents and grandparents part of it all...The birth of this country and the Revolutionary War and founding government..The Indians... All the way to Texas and the "Original 300" and the "Texas Declaration of Independence". Then through the Civil War and on and on.. How the names McKinney,Walker,Armor,Stephens, Nixon,Gilpin, and Sollock including all various spellings of each are pasted page to page throughout this saga...In fact the entire " True Life Andventure " of people who really did not have a clue of what they were getting into but as my grandmother told me they did not want to "kill or be killed"... Being well educated and prosperous they attracted much envy as well as respect.. Being good christians they turned the other cheek and many times moved away even to another state just to keep the peace..But when finally backed into a corner they "Men and Womened up" and kicked some ass... Stories of people holding positions of great power and leadership.. But they were still just people..They had their own weaknesses like kindness and gullability and yes even their own skeletons of cousins with names like Jesse James and Bonnie Parker who conspicuously had empty places at the table during the familly reunion.... I remember listening to these tails and as I got older some just seemed so far fetched and were rebuked by those around us who say stuff like "that didn't happen, or you can't do that, or that won't work"...I feel they seem to be overly pessimistic or maybe they are just horses asses I don't know but I began to doubt my own heritage... I asked my grandmother how all of those tails could have been true and how they could have been in all those places of significance at those times...She just shrugged her shoulders and told me that was just what she had been told and that I should be careful about listening to those who always see only bad news... Over 20 years later my mom started researching geneology at the libraries..Here is history in the making.. What I mean is that in the old days 1980's and 90's you had to go to that particular library in that town in that state to find out anything...What she did find verified many of those mythical tails as being true and even more dramatic than we ever thought.. Now in full circle along comes progress and the virtual library right here...Again with the help of sites like yours I have not only proven that we knew only the tip of the iceburg and that my heritage is worth the pride I was taught to have..But what is really uncanny is that all of these individual families moved in and out of each others paths for 200 years living within a few miles at times but did not become one until now... Which allows people like me to wonder more and to share more of ourselves with others with the same thirst for knowledge that we have...I hope to add many of our history to here.. I found that my info on Col. John Nixon and the Continental Congress was posted, thanks.. Believe me like with the bible it is the stories of history that fascinated me long before I knew my family was inviolved... Also I have found that the bloodlines sre still flowing..I find that our various families are still "Men and Womening Up" and making our own history along the way...I know I am having my share of adventures... I can see it all so clearly now how those myths could have all been possible and why they even happened at all..We all are living it now and having to confront injustices and those who inflict them...What makes your character is not someone elses action but your reaction..I myself have had to make that decision of not wanting to kill or be killed...It makes me so proud to strive to follow my families legacy of guidence and values and to pass them on to my children... My youngest daughter says her history teacher won't let her answer questions anymore because he knows her family was always somewhere involved.. She told him that she could not help but be proud and her stories along with stories from scores of other families are what has made this nation great...

I am fascinated by the US. I always thought it was the best country in the world. I still did not have the chance to visit any of the 50 states nor the federal district. I hope that one day I can visit the most important and beautiful places in the USA. But what I would really love to visit is NYC, L.A., L.V., San Francisco, Miami, Boston, Hawaii, San Diego, Huston and Dallas. I always hoped that Italy (my country) and the US could be best friends or allies for eternity and forget what happened during WW2. I hope that Italy and USA become the biggest international cooperators if all times. I hope that the number of Italians in the USA increases reasonably and that the number of Americans in Italy increases so that both Italians and the Americans recognize how incredible both of the countries are. Best wishes for Mr. Obama for facing with courage this terrible period of economic crisis.

I live not far from the original settlement of "Plimoth" and have enjoyed reading about the brave men who took muskets down off the mantle piece and stood up against an overwhelming force of British regulars in April of 1775. I am one of the fortunate veterans who came home mostly whole (physically, at least . . .), and with all the madness going on in America around me now I feel that much closer to those who could finally take being trodden on no more. Bless them all, and may we find their incredible strength and judgement when we need it!

I read where some people say they hate history..I personally love the stuff...As I like to say how can you know who you are without knowing who you used to be...We are the products of our family and there actions of the past....My mother got me hooked on the history of our country and our family..My people (Sollock,Gilpin,Walker,Nixon,Mckinney,Stephens mainly)have been in the pages of history for as far back as we could trace was the Doomsday Book of 1086...In this country we were collegues of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Danial Boone and the list goes on..We have been in founding positions of Pennsylvania,Kentucky,Alabama,Georgia,Missouri, Akansaa,Texas,Colorado,California...That is enough for now...If anyone would like to visit on such matters as this I would be glad to hear from you @ psollock@gmail.com Thanks to you all we are what makes this world one home for us all....

I would like to know if the Boulevard / Roosevelt Blvd / US Route 1 in Northeast Philadelphia was originally constructed as a divided twelve lane highway. If the results of my searching are correct, this section of US Route 1 was completed in approximately 1914 or, perhaps, after WW-II. Either time frame would hardly have needed a twelve lane highway, it would seem. Where might I find out about the original construction of US Route 1 in Northeast Philly? Thanks. (Mrs.) Bj Rolli

I am concerned that our US Military are wearing the flag as an arm patch with the stars oriented toward the observer's upper right. If: "When the flag is displayed in a manner other than by being flown from a staff, it should be displayed flat, whether indoors or out. When displayed either horizontally or vertically ...the union should be uppermost and to the flag's own right, that is, to the observer's left.
