On this day in 1773, Phillis Wheatley becomes the first black American to have a book of poetry published. Phillis had begun as a victim of the slave trade. In #Boston, the then-young, frail girl was sold for a “trifle” to John Wheatley. His wife, Susanna, was taken by the “humble and modest demeanor and the interesting features of the little stranger.” The bad part? The Wheatleys felt comfortable purchasing Phillis. The good part? They noticed her intelligence and desire to learn. Instead of doing housework, she was tutored and began writing poetry. Her break came in the early 1770s. Phillis had published an elegy, which was seen by the Countess of Huntingdon. She aided the Wheatley’s efforts to have Phillis’s book published. Soon afterwards, Phillis wrote another memorable poem. The #AmericanRevolution had just begun, and Phillis’s poem praised #GeorgeWashington: “Proceed, great chief, with virtue on thy side, / Thy ev’ry action let the goddess guide. / A crown, a mansion, and a throne that shine, / With gold unfading, WASHINGTON! Be thine.” Washington wrote Phillis, thanking her for the “polite notice of me.” “[H]owever undeserving I may be of such encomium and panegyrick,” he added, “the style and manner exhibit a striking proof of your great poetical Talents.” He invited her to visit his camp outside Boston. Thus, the Commander-in-Chief of the #American #Army, then still a slave owner, met with a black American female author. What a meeting! “Few incidents in the early days of the war,” Washington biographer Ron Chernow writes, “suggest how powerfully Revolutionary ideals were transforming George Washington as his reaction to Phillis Wheatley.” Washington later freed his slaves.

Spanish canons line up along the wall of Fort Ticonderoga in the Adirondacks over looking Lake Champlain. Once having played an integral role in the American Revolution this fort is now open daily to visitors and has re-enactors who play the parts of the original soldiers who teach about life back in the 17 & 1800s. #eatplayloveny

How about visiting the Valentine-Varian House this week? The house was built by Isaac Valentine in 1758 near the Boston Post Road. It was bought by the Varian family in 1791 and was sold again to William F. Beller in 1905. Beller’s son donated the house to The Bronx Historical Society in 1965 and it was opened to the public as a museum in 1968! Check out The Civil War Comes Home exhibit from now until October 4th and learn how the Bronx contributed to the war efforts 150 years ago! Click the link in the bio for more New York City museum exhibits.

I did this illustration of Thomas Paine to accompany some of his writing in an American Literature book. The point was to share the visual vocabulary of a weekly news magazine. I think Thomas Paine would have felt right at home on a cable news panel.

#MotivationalMonday - After the difficult winter at #ValleyForge, incredibly the American army with the help of training by Baron Von Steuben emerged as better trained and disciplined than ever before. Deciding to engage the main British army, George Washington and the ContinentalArmy clashed with the forces of British General Henry Clinton near Freehold, New Jersey in what has been called the #BattleOfMonmouth. In the early part of the battle, initially the #American #army led by American General #CharlesLee began to retreat. Riding up on his horse, however, George Washington personally rallied the troops and turned what looked like a feat into a stand-off with the #British. Since after the battle, the British decided to slip away instead of engaging in another day of fighting, the battle has been viewed as a victory by the Americans. More importantly, the battle proved that a well trained American army could stand up to the main forces of the British army. One of the most difficult thing for both the British and the American was the tremendous heat that day that left many soldiers overcome with heat stroke. At the conclusion of the battle, George Washington himself fell asleep lying on his cloak on the ground lying next to the similarly exhausted young #MarquisDeLafayette, with Nathaniel Greene sitting nearby and attempting to stay awake so as to guard his commander-in-chief. Because of his being rebuked for retreating during the battle, Major General Charles Lee felt insulted and demanded a formal court-martial to clear his name. At first, George Washington refused, but Lee continued to demand a court-martial trial. As a result, eventually Washington acceded to Lee’s wishes and recommended to #Congress that Lee be brought upon on charges before a court-martial trial. Instead of having his name cleared, however, the court martial trial found Lee to be guilty of the charges brought against him. Thus ended the last substantial challenge to Washington’s authority as Commander-in-Chief. #GerorgeWashington #TheGeneral #AmericanRevolution #RevolutionaryWar

thedickinsonhouse : Hey General, how about a shout to the West Jersey Quaker community! Recall that we provided food during that brutal winter when General "Mad" Anthony Wayne crossed the Delaware River to call on us. Further, our family ties go back being that you decorated my oldest son, John Dickinson (the younger), the "Hero of the Battle at Red Bank". Very truly yours, John Dickinson

Whiskey Rebellion (September 11, 1791) #whiskeyrebellion #alcohol #whiskey #georgewashington #americanrevolution #worldhistory #history An alcohol tax was the first tax imposed on a domestic product by the newly formed federal government. The tax was resisted by farmers in the frontier regions, where whiskey was used as a medium of exchange. Protesters used violence and intimidation to prevent officials from collecting the tax. After 500 armed men attacked the home of a tax inspector, Washington responded by sending peace commissioners to negotiate with the rebels, while calling on governors to send a militia force to enforce the tax. The rebels all went home before the arrival of the army, and there was no confrontation. Demonstrated that the new national government had the will and the ability to suppress violent resistance to its laws

August 29-30, 1776. After hours of rain, a dense fog crept in and settled over Brooklyn, facilitating ideal conditions for a covert escape. Alexander Graydon later wrote that the night would always remind him of the scene before the Battle of Agincourt in Henry V. To Graydon, waiting to cross the East River that night was no less a dramatic moment: "arrayed in appropriate gloom, [with] a similar interval of dread suspense and awful expectation." ☁ The Continental army moved everything that night, from troops to cannon, in darkness with no running lights (a lingering cloud obscured the full moon), and in less than twelve hours, 9,000 troops crossed safely to Manhattan. ⛵ In the morning, as British Major General Stephen Kemble recorded in his diary: "to our great astonishment, found they had evacuated all their works at Brookland … with not a shot being fired at them…and the whole escaped…." -------- Captain John Montresor, then chief engineer of the Royal Army, detailed the streets and topography of New York in 1775 as part of his military commission; this map, based on his recordings, was engraved and hand-colored in London, and described and reproduced in I.N. Phelps Stokes' Iconography of Manhattan Island, vol. I, pl. 40, p. 339-340. 📐📏📐 John Montresor (1736-1799), engineer. Peter Andrews (176-1782), engraver. A plan of the city of New-York & its environs : to Greenwich, on the North or Hudsons River, and to Crown Point, on the East or Sound River, shewing the several streets, publick buildings, docks, fort & battery, with the true form & course of the commanding grounds, with and without the town : survey'd in the winter, 1775 [i.e. 1766] Published and sold by A[ndrew] Dury, [London]: 1775. ------------------------------------------------ @NYPL Image ID 433990 Lionel Pincus and Princess Firyal Map Division Shelf locator: Map Div. 01-302 [Filed with NYC 1775 Montresor maps] Part of the Lawrence H.
