Out of all the places I have had the pleasure to visit recently. This has to be one of the most iconic places to experience, in American history. The fact that our very first president George Washington has stepped foot in this exact location(roughly), blows my mind. #ValleyForge #BattleGrounds #President #General #GeorgeWashington #AmericanRevolution #BirthOfANation #KingOfPrussia #Philadelphia #Pennsylvania #BenjaminFranklin #IndependenceHall #HistoricalLandmark #aviary

On this day in 1839, Sybil Ludington Ogden, the so-called female Paul Revere, passes away. Sybil made her ride in April 1777, when she was only 16 years old. She rode more than twice as far as Revere did—and through rockier roads and more sparsely settled country! What a girl—and what a #Patriot! On April 25, a force of 2,000 British troops landed near Fairfield, #Connecticut. They soon reached #Danbury, destroying #American #army supplies and setting private homes on fire. Messengers were dispatched. One went to Col. Henry Ludington, so he could raise militia. Ludington’s regiment was temporarily disbanded because it was planting season. The soldiers were tending their fields! Ludington could not alert the men himself. He would be needed at home, to organize the troops. Sybil was chosen to make the ride. She knew she could do it. A biographer of Col. Ludington recounts the ride: Ludington told his daughter “to take a horse, ride for the men, and tell them to be at his house by daybreak. One who even now rides from Carmel to Cold Spring will find rugged and dangerous roads, with lonely stretches….But the child performed her task, clinging to a man’s saddle, and guiding her steed with only a hempen halter….There is no extravagance in comparing her ride with that of Paul Revere and its midnight message. Nor was her errand less efficient than his. By daybreak, thanks to her daring, nearly the whole regiment was mustered....” What a girl! And...what a father! Can you imagine letting your daughter go on such a ride?! Wow. There were TWO great Patriots that night.

On this day in 1779, the British surrender a fort in modern-day Indiana. Yes! A portion of the #AmericanRevolution was fought in #Indiana, too. The British had fostered Indian alliances there, and the problem of British-funded Indian raids got worse and worse for #American pioneers. Col. George Rogers Clark wanted to help. He recruited militia and set out for the area. He gained control of a few British forts, including Ft. Sackville. Unfortunately, British Lt. Gov. Henry Hamilton took back Ft. Sackville in late 1778. Then, some of his forces left for the winter. Reinforcements would arrive in the spring. “We now viewed ourselves in a very critical situation,” Clark later wrote. “Governor Hamilton, in the spring…would be at the head of such a force that nothing in this quarter could withstand his arms.” Clark began a difficult 2-week winter journey to Ft. Sackville, hoping to take the British by surprise. Clark’s men even had to ford freezing rivers, and yet they made it! Clark had less than 200 men, but as he approached the fort, Clark’s men “marched and countermarched in such a manner that we appeared numerous.” They held up extra flags, they were noisy, and they fired at a fast rate, thus mimicking the actions of a larger group of men. As the siege began, Hamilton thought he was badly outnumbered, but Clark needed a quick surrender before reinforcements arrived. He’d captured several Indians who had been part of a scalping raid. Controversially, he had these men tomahawked, within view of the fort, as an intimidation tactic. Hamilton soon surrendered. The victory ultimately gave Americans a claim to lands north of the #Ohio River after the #Revolution.

#tombstonetuesday Today we feature the grave of Mary Banker VanDervoort at Round Top Cemetery in Purling, #NewYork. This is one of the earliest readable stones in the cemetery. Mary was born on October 29, 1748 near Fishkill, NY and died December 23, 1798 near the village of Cairo. Her husband, Paul Vandervoort, was a Revolutionary War soldier and served in Col. Jacobus Swarthout's Minute Men of the Dutchess County Militia. #nyhistory #SpreadTheHistory #ny #ilny #cemetery #tombstone #graveyard #graveyeard_dead #taphophile #taphophiles_only #aj_graveyards #roundtopny #fishkillny #revwar #americanrevolution #travelblog #travelblogger #blogger #blog #historygirl #purlingny #militia #americanhistory #ushistory #memorial #rememberme #mementomori #catskills

thehistorygirlnj : @fineartbyamyluker yes, there is much symbolism behind the carvings through the centuries. I have articles on my website www.thehistorygirl.com about carvers from New Jersey and the evolution of cemeteries.

I can't let February end without celebrating Black History Month. I zoomed in a little on this card of the Boston Massacre Site in Boston, Massachusetts. The first man killed was Crispus Attucks, an African-American. On this fateful day of March 5, 1770, the colonies moved one step away from the British. His memorial can be found at the Granary Burial Ground. I did zoom in a little - the caption on the bottom reads: "The Spot where the Boston Massacre took Place, March 5, 1770, corner Devonshire and State Street, Boston, Mass." #crispusattucks #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #africanamericanhistory #famousafricanamericans #bostonmassacrespot #freedomtrail #bostonmassacre #boston #black_history #ushistory #americanhistory #colonialamerica #americanrevolution #postcard #antiquepostcard #antiquefind #oldpostcards #oldpostcard #deltiology #timetravelerpostcards #ig_daily AVAILABLE

"The veteran is a soldier, a savior, a sword against the darkness and is nothing less than the finest, greatest testimony to and on behalf of the finest, greatest nation the world has ever known" ...On these bitterly cold nights, learn of and remember Valley Forge and all the brave men who shook, shivering in prayer, for the chance of a new day, a new promise of victory. The honored commitment to unquestionable dedication is what makes American men the greatest men on earth.

On this day in 1778, Baron von Steuben arrives at #ValleyForge. His task? To better train and organize the soldiers in the #American army. Steuben was a former Prussian officer who’d been looking for work. He’d found himself meeting with Silas Deane and #BenjaminFranklin, the American ambassadors to France. He was told he could go to America as a volunteer, but he’d have to earn his own pay and rank. It took several months, but Steuben eventually made it to America with a letter of introduction from Franklin. The Continental Congress sent Steuben to meet with General #GeorgeWashington, then in winter camp at Valley Forge. Steuben later described the army that he found there. “No European army,” he said, “could have held together in such circumstances.” The Prussian got to work. The army had not been trained in any kind of organized way. Or, sometimes, men had been trained, but differently in different states. Fighting in those days was harder than you might think, partly because the weapons took so much time load and fire. Coordination was needed to be effective. Steuben’s efforts paid off. When the Army left Valley Forge, it was far more organized and professional than it had been. Steuben also created a drill manual. This “Blue Book” became the first manual for the #UnitedStates #Army and remained in use until 1812! Steuben not only improved the army then existing at Valley Forge. He created a system whereby the army was better for the rest of the #Revolution—and beyond. We often hear about the sufferings at Valley Forge—and there were many. But there were benefits, too. Time spent with Steuben was one of them.

Today's featured artist was instrumental in helping build the image that comes to mind when we think of the first President of the United States, George Washington, Rembrandt Peale! We celebrate his life and art with one of his portraits of Washington from 1854. Read the following comments to learn more about his life and art.
art - arteducation - washington - georgewashington - americanrevolution - culture - cmusicaenovae - portrait - cmnarts - rembrandtpeale - cmn - americanart - americanhistory - usa - miami - artoftheday - arthistory - compositummusicaenovae - satieisthebest - painting - picoftheday -
cmusicaenovae : Rembrandt Peale was born on February 22, 1778, in Pennsylvania, to the celebrated artist Charles Willson Peale. Charles named all his sons after famous artists, and trained them not just in the arts, but in the sciences as well. In fact, it was from his father that Peale inherited his predilection towards portraits, so-much-so that Peale painted his first self-portrait at the age of 13, which, although somewhat exaggerated, showed the remarkable mastery he had already developed. This early mastery would prove itself when, after becoming introduced to George Washington in 1787, he painted his first portrait of the young nation’s first president in 1795. It was the first of many portraits that Peale painted of Washington throughout his life. Peale spent much of his time in the late 1790s and early 1800s traveling extensively, and studying and painting portraits in the Southern United States and throughout Europe. In 1822, he moved to New York to begin work on what would become the most famous of his Washington portraits. Studying the portraits created by many other artists, including that of his father and even his own 1795 work, Peale set out to create the defining portrait of him. Completed in 1824, the portrait depicts Washington through an ornate porthole, with the head of Jupiter above him and the words “Patriae Pater,” which stand for “Father of our Country,” inscribed below. Although Gilbert Stuart’s portrait would become the iconic image of the first president, Peale’s would eventually be purchased by Congress and hung in the Senate Chamber, where it still hangs to this day.
cmusicaenovae : During his lifetime, Peale was renowned not just for his portraits of George Washington, but also for his portraits of other important figures of the time and even of fictional characters. One of his most famous works of the latter, and possibly his most famous work, is “Court of Death” (1820). Over 300 square feet in size, it depicts Death sitting on a throne deep in a cave, with his foot on the corpse of a seemingly healthy young man, and flanked by many others. To the left are his agents of self-destruction, and to the right, those of violence and decay. Immediately to his left stands an old man who, helped by a young woman with her eyes to the heavens, gladly welcomes death. Interestingly, many of the figures in the painting are actually portraits of members of Peale’s family, including his father, his sisters, and one of his brothers. Rembrandt Peale died on October 3, 1860, at the age of 82, with over completed 600 paintings to his name.

On this day in 1770, a British sympathizer shoots an 11-year-old boy in Boston. Some say that Christopher Seider was the first casualty in the conflict that would become the #AmericanRevolution. Seider was then working for a widow in #Boston. Tensions were rising between Great Britain and her #American colonies. By 1770, the merchants of Boston were united in a nonimportation agreement, protesting British tax policy. But one local merchant, Theophilus Lillie, would not participate. On February 22nd, the Sons of Liberty hung a sign over his shop—“IMPORTER.” A crowd soon gathered, basically picketing Lillie’s shop. Seider was walking by and began participating in the protest. Lillie’s neighbor, Ebenezer Richardson, tried to take the sign down, but the crowd pursued him and threw stones. Richardson ran to his home, where he grabbed his musket. He shot blindly into the crowd. One shot hit Seider, dealing a fatal blow. Gov. Hutchinson later described the mob’s reaction: “[T]he first thought was to hang him up at once and a halter was brought and a sign post picked upon.” In the end, Richardson was delivered to authorities instead. Bostonians were outraged, and Seider’s funeral was a mournful affair. The Boston Gazette described “His tragical Death & the peculiar Circumstances attending it had touch'd the Breasts of all with the tenderest Sympathy, a few only excepted, who have long shewn themselves to be void of the Feelings of Humanity.” John Adams said that his “Eyes never beheld such a funeral.” Unfortunately, matters would soon get even worse. Stay tuned for the second half of the story!

BOSTON TEA PARTY This famed act of American colonial defiance served as a protest against taxation and was a key event leading to the American Revolution. On the night of December 16, 1773, Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty boarded three ships in the Boston harbor and threw 342 chests of tea overboard. The Boston Tea Party was less party and more of a defiant act against the British Parliament. Of course, leave it to Samuel Adams to lead a protest against tea. I imagine boycotting beer would've made this rebel reconsider. #BostonTeaParty #Boston #Massachusetts #AmericanRevolution #SamuelAdams #SonsOfLiberty #Taxation #destruction #Patriots #BostonHarbor #Political #Protest #standoff #thirteen #Colony #England #EastIndian #BenjaminFranklin #ThomasHutchinson #KingGeorge #Tea #beer #indiegogo #campaign #map #city #animation #HistoryChannel #taleofacity
