The Rainier Chapter House hosted a 5th grade Colonial Days field trip. A huge thanks to local chapters of the DAR, the SAR, Fife & Drum Corp, and George and Martha Washington for making a fun and educational experience for the kids! Thank you also to Cupcake Royale for your support. The children loved their special patriotic treats.

As per usual, I saw this title of this month’s @bookofthemonth choice and immediately knew I needed it. I mean... George Washington! Hamilton!

I don’t know when I’ll get to it, but it sounds fascinating and I do love my Revolutionary War history!

On October 17, 1777, British General John Burgoyne surrendered his entire army of more than 5,752 troops to American General Horatio Gates at Saratoga, New York. After invading south from Canada into New York, Burgoyne’s force faced the Northern Department of the Continental Army under Gates in two bloody battles nine miles south of the village of Saratoga. Fought on September 19 and October 7, General Benedict Arnold, one of Gates’s subordinates, fearlessly led American troops in combat, and as one of his soldiers later wrote, proved he was “the very genius of war.” Colonel Daniel Morgan’s elite Virginia riflemen and the Polish engineer, Colonel Thaddeus Kosciuszko also rendered invaluable service. After his failed attack on the 7th, Burgoyne retreated to Saratoga and his army was quickly surrounded by Gates’s force, compelling the British commander to capitulate after a week of negotiations. The American victory at Saratoga was the turning point of the Revolutionary War, bringing France openly into the conflict. In February 1778, the government of King Louis XVI and the United States forged a military alliance pledged to American Independence. With the emergence of Britain’s ancient enemy into the struggle, the American Revolution became a world war. 🇺🇸 #ThisIsWhyWeStand

I Like this quote I dislike this quote

Okay, ladies, now lets get in formation

On October 17, 1781, with the American artillery closer and its bombardment more intense than ever, the British position in Yorktown begins to deteriorate rapidly. As a result, British General Charles Cornwallis asks for capitulation terms. Within two days, after negotiations, he will formally surrender 8,000 British soldiers and seamen to a French and American force, bringing the American Revolution to a close. 🇺🇸.

The beautiful and haunting Old Sheldon Church ruins. Located just outside of Beaufort, South Carolina. The pre-existing building was originally known as Prince William's Parish Church, built between 1745 and 1753. But as written in thesoutherly.com, "Prince William Parish Church was to be a casualty of not one war, but two. First it was the Revolutionary War, when British troops burned down the church as well as the plantations around it. In 1826 the church was rebuilt (and renamed Sheldon Church) only to be caught up in the Civil War forty years later. Markers on the church today will tell you that Sherman’s men burned down the church, but some historians think that the building was looted by locals, who tore out the interiors and stole materials so that they could rebuild the homes and communities destroyed by Sherman’s armies."

Our first full day in Boston was a success! @lilburton_73 and I walked the Freedom Trail, hung out with @morgan_jutras at the oldest tavern in the U.S., and capped off the day touring the U.S.S. Constitution where my ancestor served as captain in 1835. 🇺🇸

Tryon Palace was well represented today at the NC State Fair. The 1st NC Continental Line and the USCT looked sharp during the walking parade and the military uniform parade. #Tryonpalace #USCT #revolutionarywar #civilwar #ncstatefair #1stcontinentalline

Captain Samual Brady was George Washington's top scout and a important US Ranger, was also commander of my frontier town, fought in Lord Dunmore's War, and Revolutionary War, and his brother conquered Detroit later on from my understanding. General Biggs I don't know much about.... hence why I went back to Wear Liberty to photograph his grave and record the info, as a general he would of been instrumental in Lord Dunmore's War as well as later on during the Revolutionary War, and I don't know what real role he played. A random Confederate Colonel buried well past north of the Mason-Dixie line is here as well, NORTH of Union Virginia's capital of Wheeling during the Civil War, so undoubtedly a interesting story. I also included a absolute mystery we've managed to lose all trace of from a separate cemetery along Pennsylvania Avenue just over the border in Weirton, WV, Captain Goorley who apparently was in command of a artillery (company?) and traveled from Lancaster County across the wild frontier to Half Moon (Industrial Park) in Holliday's Cove (Weirton) VA (WVA).... while Aaron Burr was leading a rebellion down state in Point Pleasant during the Jefferson Administration. I don't know if Jefferson feared Burr or Mexico, at this point the US Army was two states West fighting Indians in Indiana, so I have alot of problem grasping why a PA artillery unit had to desperately move into VA on the Ohio River in a bizarre spot of questionable strategic value and set up.... but that is just what they did. Goorley's grave was originally in another graveyard, but was moved, and I don't know why. I visited the spot last year, and I don't know. He fell out of the cracks of history, but was a important frontier figure in his day.
