On this day in 1775, King George III formally receives an Olive Branch petition from the American colonies. The Olive Branch Petition was adopted by the Continental Congress on July 5, 1775. Some, like John Adams, thought that war was inevitable; however, the majority of Congress voted to give reconciliation a try. A petition was thus drafted, approved, and finally signed on July 8. The petition blamed Parliament, not the King, for the problems between England and the colonies. The colonists spoke of themselves as “your majesty's faithful subjects” and expressed hope and confidence that the King would act to grant relief. The petition arrived in London at the end of August and was formally presented to the King on September 1. The King did not believe the colonists were sincere. He’d already issued a proclamation declaring the colonies to be in “open and avowed rebellion,” and he refused to even look at the petition. The petition is a remarkable contrast to the Declaration of Independence, approved only a year later. The mindset of the colonists’ had changed drastically in just 12 short months. In the Petition, the colonists called themselves “subjects” and expressed hope that the King would help. In the Declaration, they blasted the King for “an absolute Tyranny over these States.” They concluded: “We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America…solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States.” P.S. The picture is of King George III! #TDIH #USHistory #AmericanHistory #history #freedom #liberty #1776 #AmericanRevolution #independence #America #USA #HS #homeschool #tcot

In October 1777, 500 #British regulars and 400 #Loyalist troops, including those under my ancestor, marched down this road in the #hudsonvalley to take two patriot forts. The scenery, covered today by me, @omeletno1 @sara_brech213 @jewled4 and #mercyotis, with a terrific guide, hasn't changed much since. #historichikes #newyorkhistory #hiking #americanhistory #AmericanRevolution

On or around this day in 1752, the Liberty Bell was being transported up the #Delaware River toward #Philadelphia. On September 1, a city official would report: “The Bell is come on shore and in good order.” The bell had been ordered for Philadelphia’s state house, and it had been cast by a master founder from London. Can you believe that the bell cracked on its very first use? The foundry still exists today and gives this explanation: “Good bell metal is extremely brittle….If a bell is struck and not allowed to ring freely, because either the clapper or some part of the frame or fittings are in contact with the bell, then a crack can very easily develop.” Two local founders attempted to recast it, adding more copper to make the bell less brittle. Sadly, they added too much and ruined the pure tone of the bell. They tried again, this time adding more tin. Apparently that didn’t really help, either. Nevertheless, the bell was used for years. Most famously, it tolled on July 8, 1776, when the Declaration of #Independence was read in Philadelphia. In 1777, the bell was hidden under floorboards in a church basement in Allentown. The British were coming and locals feared that the bell would be captured, melted down, and used to make musket balls. The bell was returned to Philadelphia when the British finally evacuated the city. The crack that you see in the bell today began in the 1800s but became significantly worse when the bell was rung on Washington’s birthday in 1846. Afterwards, the bell was sent on tours of the country before returning to Philadelphia. The picture is from an 1885 edition of Harper’s Weekly: “The #liberty bell back in its birth-place again now that it has proclaimed liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof, it is perfectly at home.” FULL STORY: Facebook.com/TaraRoss.1787 #TDIH #AmericanHistory #USHistory #tcot #HS #homeschool #freedom #1776 #AmericanRevolution

On this day in 1778, Brig. Gen. Christopher Gadsden and Maj. Gen. Robert Howe engage in a duel. It was the culmination of a long-running dispute over rank. In #Philadelphia, few people realized how serious the dispute was becoming. But in #SouthCarolina, everyone knew what was happening—and they were taking sides! To some degree, the issue had become a question about who was to command troops: an officer appointed by Congress or a local officer. Matters came to a head when Gadsden wrote an incendiary letter about Howe in July 1778. Howe had had enough. He demanded satisfaction. The duel was set for August 30 under the Liberty Tree. On the morning of the duel, the place was packed! People had even climbed into the Liberty Tree to get a better view. The two men relocated to a more private location. You won’t believe what happened next. The two men simply stared at each other in silence! Howe finally said: “Fire, Sir.” Gadsden replied: “Do you fire first, Sir.” Howe concluded: “We will both fire together.” But, still, the two men just looked at each other! Finally Howe lowered his gun and asked: “Why don’t you fire, General Gadsden?” “You brought me out, General Howe, to this ball play, and ought to begin the entertainment.” Howe’s first shot barely clipped Gadsden’s ear. Gadsden then put his pistol at right angles with Howe and wasted his shot. Howe took the deliberately missed shot as an apology. The two men parted rather amicably. P.S. In the picture, the man on the left is #Gadsden. The man on the right is Howe.
