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.
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.
It is time for another assault on the Constitution. With Harry Reid pushing SJR19 back in May he has begun another effort to limit Political Freedom of Speech. Before the American War for Independence, colonists in America faced a very dangerous situation when speaking their minds about politictians. You could be arrested, beaten, imprisoned and even executed for saying even true things about government officials.
The First Amendment to The Constitution was meant to specifically protect political free speech. Flag Burning, suspending crosses in urine and shouting "Death To America!!!" are all simply happy bi-products of the 1st Amendment.
The McCain/Feingold Act, also known as the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, was the latest atempt at limiting The First Amendment. It never made it and instead, the companion legislation, H.R. 2356—introduced by Rep. Chris Shays (R-CT), is the version that became law. Shays–Meehan was originally introduced as H.R. 380.
Now Senate Joint Resolution 19 will once again attempt to limit what type of political speech is allowed.
Join us tonight to discuss why this is bad and how this can be stopped.
We will also discuss the upcoming fundamentals of rifle marksmanship courses,
"The Ghosts of Goliad Project".
Two day rifle marksmanship courses designed to give you a rock solid understanding of the fundamentals of rifle marksmanshiip and at the same time, give you an understanding of what happend in Texas in 1835 to produce the War for Texas Independence and a new Republic. The course also runs hourly introductions to self reliance and prepping topics.

RETV Examines the Black Youth Violence Crisis in New Docu-Series
(Jersey City's) Peace March & Mini-Concert
(There is a war on our shores! And the enemy is not some dark, sinister foreign entity - it's homegrown, right here in our midst. The Black youth violence crisis is alarming, fueled by the enemies of peace and tranquility -- ignorance and apathy. We must declare war, and fight vigorously to rescue our Black youth from extinction. RETV, a popular YouTube channel headed by LaMar Stephens of New Jersey-based Rap Entertainment, Inc., is creating a three-part docu-series entitled "Cities In Crisis," which will examine the problem under a microscope, laying out both the problems and the solutions, featuring celebrities such as rappers T.I., Common, Ice Cube and Talib Kweli, along with educators, actors and community activists, who all drop their own brands of knowledge and wisdom regarding the Black youth violence crisis...because after all, if it "takes a village" to raise a child, it will most certainly "take a village" to save him/her.
In conjunction with the docu-series, RETV is sponsoring a Peace March and Mini-Concert, scheduled for Sunday, October 26 in Jersey City, NJ's Greenville section. Jersey City has been one of the battlegrounds of this war, and peace warriors there are supporting the RETV effort by hosting this event, designed to
bring calmness to their city. It is Stephens' strong desire that more communities across the country will join the fight. He will film the Jersey City event for airing on RETV, as a battle plan for others to follow.
