I think that the time has come to act upon some of these fundamental instructions and truths. Why does Christianity and the National Day of Prayer have to be abolished. Does not religious freedom and the right to persue happiness cover Christians too???

I was curious as to what the real history of the wordig of Pledge of Alligiance really was, there have been so many debates among colleges as to whom was correct, now I know where to reference the correct information. Thank you for your website on history.

This is an exciting web site that I happened to stumble upon. I am a current college student and am apalled at the number of students who know nothing about the history of their own country. Sites such as this certainly help!

Writing a book located in late 18th century Philadelphia, and came across your site via Google...have already found great information on taverns...hope to find info on the lives of other Nubians in Philly, such as indentured servants or...Err...slaves? Would like to read some letters or Magazine excerpts from the era to get an idea of how life was lived and what people wore or thought. Thank you for the hard work you all have put into this site. And a big hug for all the pics, they give me a sense of what the neighborhoods, architecture, and so on were like.

In these trying times of Arizona’s dilemma, financial disasters, a Government that no longer listens, oil poisoning our Gulf, it is necessary to refresh our spirit at the fountain of our beginning. We need to realize that we can overcome these problems only if we have the spirit to do it. The Spirit of 1776.

A copy of the Constitution should be sent to each member of Congress and the members of the President's Cabinet with the requirement that they must read it before they can be put into office. Then they must support it or be recalled.

In these trying times which plague our great nation currently, there is nothing much more important then our freedom to be well informed. That the importance of understanding the reason for our successes and our failures within the context of history is not denied, so to is it true that a source for gatherig the knowledge neccessary for understanding should exist readily despinsable. To you all who mantain the contents of this site, and contribute to it's wealth of information, God bless you, and thank you on behalf of all free people.

Ariel, El Campo [05-04-2010]

I have just joined The Heritage Foundation. I am very concerned with the direction of the country. EWe are losing our individualism and the things that made this country GREAT. Yeah, we weren't perfect, but we were freer to do things. THE GOVERMENT SHOULDN'T RUN OUR LIVES! We must teach/train our young people to aspire to be superior, not arrogant, and humble. How do we do it? I'm not sure, but it can't be the government. Private citizens or groups must ban together and develop plans to accomplish these goals. Thank you. I'll get off my soapbox.

I'm an avid genealogist and as I approach retirement the more excited I get at tracing parts of my family to thee Civil War and Revolutionary War. My 3rd great grandfather fought with distinction in Ohio and in the Cayuse Wars of the virgin Oregon Territory. He was one of the first settlers. His grandfather served in the War for Independence. Another side of my family did the same thing. My 2nd great grandmother was approximately 2 when her father (mentioned about) packed up their goods with long established friends and headed west. His letters on the trail said her health improved with the activity, sun and open air.

Since I have been searching my family, who came from MAss. and were members of the Bay colony, Brian Pendleton, I have often wondered if there is a list of the minutemen, by name, and or a list of the soldiers that were part of the militia. Thanks

Thank you for the photos of Washington's actual chair. It does the heart good to see what it really was like. Carved not painted as in other explanations I've read.
