SORT BY Relevancy
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.
Scandal, Controversy and Veterans Care in the United States have gone hand-in-hand for virtually as long as there's been a republic.
After the Revolutionary War, for instance, payments promised by Congress to disabled veterans were left up to the states, and only a few thousand of those who served ever received anything, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
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.
We are coming up on the April 19th, the day the AMerican Revolutionary War began and the day our nation was birthed. With this, we are also coming up on the signature weekend shoots of The Appleseed Project which celebrate this day. We will be spending some time tonight talking about the events that led the Colonists into the American Revolutionary War.
“We hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable; that all men are created equal and independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent and inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
Thomas Jefferson turned over in his sleep.
That document – they tore what I wrote apart. I must talk to Ben Franklin and John Adams. They have to persuade the Continental Congress to restore my original wording before the delegates sign it.
And so the saga begins.
The “Declaration of Independence” series brings to life the crafting and signing of the World famous document as told through the eyes of Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, and Francis Lewis.
Best- Selling author Murray Pura also includes recipes for Corn Bread and Colonial Braised Rabbit with “Volume 1 – Thomas Jefferson”.
Fast Fact- There is something written on the back of the Declaration of Independence.
There is a simple message, written upside-down across the bottom of the signed document: “Original Declaration of Independence dated 4th July 1776.” No one knows who exactly wrote this or when, but during the Revolutionary War years the parchment was frequently rolled up for transport. It’s thought that the text was added as a label.
