We have covered the battles of Princeton and Trenton before on the show, but I do not think they can be discussed enough. The hardships the Colonials endured and the strength and courage it took to not only to fight in this horrible weather, but just to endure it. No food, little or no clothes or supplies for cold weather. Men marching through the days and night without sleep or in many cases without shoes on their feet.
We will also talk about the Forage Wars, and what they meant to the men and women on both sides of the battles.
Join me tonight to see how the men who stood together in ranks pushed themselves to make a stand during the hardest days in the American Revolutionary War, and think about how you would fare in those conditions.
Hope to see you there!
Tonight we will talk about the battles that occurred during the month of December during the years of the American Revolutionary War. Starting with a quick discussion of the Boston Tea Party, not an in depth one, since I want to talk about the Tea Party on the radio show, by itself in depth, during the week it actually happened. But there were a dozen battles that occurred during the years of the American Revolutionary War in the month of December and we will talk about them tonight.
I like to talk about the battles in the month they occurred as it is easier to understand the cold of winter if it is cold outside, and the battles of summer if it is hot outside. Makes sense right? Be sure and take the time to call in and thank your local Appleseed crew on air, they really appreciate it folks, the same way you would.
Tune in to my Radio Show, Anita Talks Genealogy on July 1st, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm (pst). The Topic is Virginia's Revolutionary War Brothers, and I will be speaking on my ancestors and other soldiers of Color. I have two direct ancestors who served in the Revolutionary War, Charles Lewis was a Seamen and a Soldier (fought in the Battle of Camden), and Rawley Pinn was a Soldier, who fought at the Siege of Yorktown. History is silent on the Battle of Camden, which was a losing Battle. Yet it set the stage for the British Defeat at Yorktown. Charles and Ambrose Lewis were brothers who fought at The Battle of Camden, and Ambrose was severally injured. He was bayoneted clean through and shot nine times, and still survived. The British took him prisoner on board a prison ship, which may be why he survived. Ambrose lived well into his eighties probably sharing tales of his war days with his children and grandchildren. Rawley Pinn was born in Indian town Lancaster County, to Robert and Margaret Pinn. He served an apprenticeship before leaving the area and settling in Amherst County. He was part of the Militia that left Amherst County and joined the unit headed by Marquis De Lafayette. They joined George Washington's forces in Yorktown, were the Battle against the British was being waged. It is an eerie coincidence that one of my ancestors was fighting in a losing battle (The Battle of Camden), while another was participating in the defining Battle of the War (The Siege of Yorktown). We have a Toll Free Call in Number, 1-877-516-6887. Link to Show. Tune in and listen up!
The shows are dedicated to the memory of my beloved Grandson, Kerry Baxter Junior. You are my bright and shining star!
We talk about medicine, hospitals and surgical procedures that folks living during the American Revolutionary War could look forward to.
The June 9, 2011, episode of American Heroes Radio features a conversation with Travis Bowman, a 6th generation descendant of Peter Francisco, has written an historical novel about Peter's life entitled Hercules of the Revolution and produced a half-hour documentary The Peter Francisco Story: 10 Things You Never Knew About One of Our Nation’s Founding Fathers.
About Peter Francisco
Peter Francisco isn’t often mentioned in modern history textbooks, yet he stands among famous people of the Revolutionary War and is considered one of America’s founding fathers. Few know of this Portuguese American’s legendary prowess during the American Revolution, in which he served three tours of duty, fought in five major battles, and was wounded six times, twice escaping death. Five monuments stand up and down the East Coast honoring Peter Francisco, the Hercules of the Revolution. George Washington called Peter Francisco his “One-Man Army” and even had a six-foot broadsword fashioned just for Peter on account of his giant stature.
About the Guest
Travis Bowman is a 6th generation descendant of Peter Francisco, and he is of similar stature standing 6’6” tall just like Peter. As an actor he enjoys telling Peter’s story through dramatic impersonations with a 6’ replica broadsword similar to the one George Washington had made for Peter. Travis’ family is originally from Virginia where Peter was raised and resided most of his life. Coincidently, Travis was born the day after Virginia declared March 15th, Peter Francisco Day.
Travis’s grandfather was stationed in London during WWII, and his father spent 40 years at the National Security Agency.
Sparks31 has been on the shsow previously to speak about the skills and techniques needed to initiate and maintain communications with the outside world, using your own equipment, FRS, CB and Ham Radios, during a "grid down" situation. He returns tonight to continue that discussion and to talk about what he will be teaching at the upcoming BattleRoadUSA Grid Down Communications course December 6th/7th, 2014 at our facilities in Central Texas.
Even if you are not planning on attending the course, this is information you will want to have in your work bag in the event all other means of communications are unavailable to you. In a natural or man made disaster, or any type of "grid down" situation, having the ability to determine what is going on the the rest of the world, outside your field of view, is an extremely important ability.
We will also discuss ways to use your communications systems as the basis for your intelligence program. Being able to listen to service providers, EMS, Sheriff's Dept, Police, etc., in your area can help you determine what is happening in your area of operations. Knowing that there is something going down in your area, or close to you can be very important in your home defense or community defense plan.
Be sure and call in with your questions at 347-308-8790 and add your voice to the discussion.
Hope to see you there!

Joining us on the show today will be Conflict MMA Promotions CEO Jared Williams to discuss the upcoming COnflict 23 event set for December 6th in Hardeeville, SC. With an incredible 2014 almost in the books for the promotion, today we look back at the year and dive right onto Fight Club Hardeeville in what is sure to be another great Conflict event.
Stay tuned to War of the Words all this week and next as we continue to bring these great fighters from the cage to your ear drums ahead of Dec 6th's fantastic card. And be sure to meet us there in Hardeeville for what promises to be one of Conflicts most explosive cards, and one hell of a way to close out 2014.
"From August- December we will have held a show every month and only repeated a city once (Columbia, SC) which is a goal achieved that seems unreal for us. 5 events, 4 cities, 5 months sounds so absurd that I honestly try to figure out how it comes together like it does, but it always does and it’s always fun. It was incredible to add Macon, Myrtle Beach, and Hardeeville to the growing list of cities we go to.
Key moments for me in these last few events have been #1 Alexa Conners comeback KO over Allison Ainley in Columbia in her 145lb title defense, Kobe Wall earned two KO’s in two weeks in two weight classes (Macon & Savannah), seeing our heavyweight champion sign and get the opportunity to live out his dream fighting for Bellator, and the emergence of Lamar Brown, Mark Trader and Eddie Miller as future stars within the promotion. Oh, and Adrian Henderson Vs Nick Smiley was an absolute stunner, as was Ben Brewer Vs Micah Miller! So many great moments. Did I mention our champ JJ Aldrich also signed with Invicta?"
-Jared Williams, Conflict MMA CEO
