Tomorrow is the #SolarEclipse! Twice during the Revolutionary War, solar eclipses not only captured the interest of scientists and the public, but were also considered to be of important military significance. Click on the link in our bio to learn about the two solar eclipses that occurred during George Washington's time ☀️

A red letter (and a red dress!) day. Thank you @foxandfriends for the honor to be with you to chat about protecting our history (the good, the bad, and the ugly) for America's children. #epicorderoftheseven #patrickhenry #howrevolutionary #americanrevolution #history @patrickhenrysredhill

On this day in 1751, Samuel Prescott is born in #Massachusetts. He is best known for his midnight ride with Paul Revere. The little-known Prescott, not Revere, warned #Concord that the British were coming! Prescott was in Lexington on April 18, reportedly courting his fiancé, Ms. Lydia Mulliken. He left her family’s home quite late, intending to return to Concord. A romantic start, isn’t it? Unfortunately, not every historian is sure that Prescott was actually courting Lydia. Either way, Prescott was on the road during the early morning hours of April 19. Paul Revere and another rider, William Dawes, were also just leaving Lexington. They’d delivered their warning to Samuel Adams and John Hancock. Now, they wanted to secure weapons and supplies in Concord. Revere and Dawes ran into Prescott. What made them trust the young doctor? Revere wrote that they “were overtaken by a young Docter Prescot, whom we found to be a high Son of #Liberty.” Unfortunately, the #Patriot party ran into British officers. Revere was captured. Dawes got away, but his horse ran off. In the meantime, Prescott “jumped his Horse over a low Stone wall, and got to Concord.” Historian David Hackett Fischer recounts that Prescott “spread the word through #Lincoln and Concord, making an effort to awaken ministers, militia officers, and the family networks of outlying hamlets. He also recruited other couriers….” The word spread like wildfire! Prescott’s story didn’t end well. He joined the Continental #Army as a surgeon, but he was later captured as he served aboard a privateer. Prescott died, still a prisoner, in 1777. He never saw #America win her #independence.

After a reading of the newly signed Declaration of Independence, emboldened New Yorkers proceeded to tear down a statue of King George III on Broadway. The lead statue was later melted down to be made into bullets for the fledgling Continental Army. New York City. July 9th, 1776. #history #monument #statue #americanrevolution #newyorkcity

Doing some #renovations in my pre #americanrevolution house built in #1773. Leaving some art hidden beneath. The message in 1773 and now is the same. #resist

We've come so far together. Thanks for joining #TurnAMC on the journey.

James Armistead. Patriot. In the summer of 1781, General George Washington sent a message to General Lafayette, instructing him to keep his forces strong and to inform him of Cornwallis's equipment, military personnel, and future strategies. Lafayette sent several spies to infiltrate Cornwallis's camp, yet none proved able to produce valuable information for him until he received Armistead's reports dated July 31, 1781. The information in these reports helped Lafayette trap the British at Hampton. Later that summer Armistead's reports helped the Americans win the battle at Yorktown, prompting the British to surrender. #americanrevolution #independenceday #fourthofjuly

On this day in 1754, Banastre Tarleton is born as the fourth child of John Tarleton, the former lord mayor of Liverpool, and a money lender, merchant and slave trader.

After completing his education at Oxford, Tarleton became the most feared officer in the British army during the War for American Independence, memorialized in portraits by Sir Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough, as well as on film in The Patriot (2000), starring Mel Gibson, as the basis for the character Colonel William Tavington. The treatment of Patriot prisoners by Tarleton and his Loyalist troops in the Southern Campaign led to the coining of a phrase that came to define British brutality during of the last years of the War for Independence: “Tarleton’s Quarter.” After the surrender of Charleston, South Carolina, on May 12, 1780, the 3rd Virginia, commanded by Colonel Abraham Buford, was virtually the only organized Patriot formation remaining in South Carolina; Colonel Tarleton had been given the mission to destroy any colonial resistance in the state. At Waxhaws on the North Carolina border, a cavalry charge by Tarleton’s men broke the 350 remaining Patriots under Buford. Tarleton and his Tories proceeded to shoot at the Patriots after their surrender, a move that spawned the term “Tarleton’s Quarter,” which in the eyes of the Patriots meant a brutal death at the hands of a cowardly foe. The Continentals lost 113 killed and 203 captured in the Battle of Waxhaws; British losses totaled 19 men and 31 horses killed or wounded. Although they were routed, the loss became a propaganda victory for the Continentals, as wavering Carolina civilians terrified of Tarleton and their Loyalist neighbors were now prepared to rally to the Patriot cause. After the British surrender at Yorktown, Virginia, in 1781, Tarleton returned to Britain where he served in Parliament as a representative from Liverpool and argued for the preservation of the slave trade. He became Sir Banastre Tarleton, 1st Baronet, in 1815. He died in 1833. #onthisday #birthday #banastretarleton #britishofficer #americanrevolution #history #historynerd 🇺🇸🇬🇧

08/20/17 Been reading a bit lately about the American Revolution and was quite surprised today to find this statue of Nathan Hale while roaming the halls of the @ngadc. A young, inexperienced spy for Washington in NYC, he was discovered and hanged. The quote, "I regret that I have but one life to lose for my country" is attributed to him.

"I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.." - Henry David Thoreau
My inner geek was so excited to be sitting in a replica of this literary genius & naturalists' desk writing him a Happy (belated) 200th Birthday note 📝 #history #Americanhistory #lexington #concord #americanrevolution #revolutionarywar
