On this day in 1777, American militia win the Battle of Millstone. It was part of the so-called Forage War, which occurred after #GeorgeWashington’s victory at #Princeton. In all, nearly 60 skirmishes were fought, often by local militia. “These men were inspired by the American victories at #Trenton and Princeton,” David Hackett Fischer explains, “and they were angry about the [British] occupation of #NewJersey.” Militia “attacked where they saw an opening, killed a few Regulars, and disappeared into the countryside. Each success encouraged more militia to take the field.” Another motivation? The need for supplies. Washington needed supplies, but he also wanted to stop the British from getting their own. One notable engagement in the Forage War occurred on January 20. A British foraging party ran into two American companies near Millstone River. These companies were soon reinforced by militia and riflemen led by Gen. Philemon Dickinson. British artillery defended the bridge, so Dickinson’s men crossed the still icy river in waist-deep water. Cold and wet, they emerged and engaged British forces in a 20-minute battle. Accounts vary, but one reports that “the enemy had placed three field pieces on a hill, about 50 yards from the bridge, when our men found it impossible to cross there, they went down the river, broke through the ice, waded across the river up to their middles, flanked the enemy, [and] routed them.” The British retreated, leaving behind supplies. The Forage War was important! Its victories were morale boosters for Americans who had spent much of #1776 being chased out of #NewYork and across New Jersey.

In 1777 Sybil’s father was commander of some 400 militia men against the British. These men lived spread out during planting season. Word was sent to him of an impending attack by the British. Sybil was 16 years old with knowledge of rebels and loyalists locations. She took to her horse to warn neighbors and the militia. She rode in the dark, in the rain. She only had a large stick with her, she used it when a man in the woods attack her. She rode twice as far as Paul Revere. George Washington went to her house and personally thanked her. There was concern, this act of heroism might empower woman. Showing just how brave woman are. So at the time her mission went unrecorded or recognized. #sybilludington #americanrevolution #technomusic #trancemusic #trancefamily #industrialmusic #hiphop #actress #actor #film #singer #writer #vegan #animalliberation #digitalart #motiongraphics #buddha #higherconsciousness #kindness #compassion

Saturday Night Cinema: Sybil Ludington

You’re missing out if you don’t know who Sybil Ludington is. She was 16 when she rode in the night. Much like Paul Revere, she made the longer more dangerous ride on the same night. •

On April 22, 1783, this historic cannon announced the end of the American Revolution here on the western frontier of the new nation.
—
Cast at the Mount Aetna forge near Hagerstown, MD, this iron fortification gun entered service at the New Frederick Barracks in 1783, then the home to 1,500 German prisoners of war.
—
After the war, this gun fired Independence Day
salutes for the local militia. In 1831, it welcomed the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad to Frederick.
—
On November 25, 1844, improper loading burst the
piece, killing its gunner Upton Duvall. This surviving portion later stood watch at Bentz and Fourth Streets, from about 1846 to 1951

Samuel Smedley captained three vessels during the American Revolution: the Connecticut state ship Defense and the privateers Recovery and Hibernia. Black Rock, which was then part of Fairfield, was Smedley's home port.

🖋 📖 When you journey back through America’s history, you’ll eventually find yourself at Grand Army Plaza. Originally named “Prospect Park Plaza,” it served as a battleground for the Battle of Long Island, which was the first battle of the American Revolution ⚔️. Today, the plaza features many monuments and memorials. It also serves as a space that separates Prospect Park, from city life...every summer, you can find some sort of farmers market or festival happening right around this entrance into Prospect Park. 👌🏽🤗

This is what I believe to be the first illustrated edition of James Boyd’s book about the American Revolutionary War, Drums. This edition, which includes illustrations by N.C. Wyeth, was published in 1928. No dust jacket. Not a particularly rare book, but rare in such good condition. I’d part with it for 60 USD. #rarebooks #ncwyeth #jamesboyd #revolutionarywar #americanrevolution

I'm a sucker for books referencing George Washington and/or the American Revolution🇺🇸 "His Excellency" showed me not just the militaristic and presidential achievements of GW, but how sound his character was. His internal strength and composure came through in a time where a fledgling country needed direction towards their democratic ideals and economic interests. 
Great autobiography on a marvelous president.

Happy birthday to #CindySherman! This 1989 photograph from the @vamuseum
 collection shows Sherman in the guise of a woman during the American Revolutionary period against a pastoral backdrop. Through her dramatically staged images the celebrated American artist plays with notions of gender and the tradition of portraiture. See more of her work on her Instagram @_cindysherman_

The Five Points, 1827. There was once a beautiful pond nearby that the Dutch called Kalch Hoek, “lime shell point,” after noticing #oyster middens left nearby by the natives, who had a small village on its banks called Werpoes, "beautiful village by the thicket." When the British took over, the name of the pond was Anglicized to the Collect Pond, and for many years it was a favorite spot to fish, swim, and ice skate. Folks built cottages overlooking the banks of the pond, but in the years following the #AmericanRevolution, butchers and tanners moved to the area, dumping offal and chemicals into the water. As a result, the pond became heavily polluted, and the city built a canal to drain the pond (the namesake of #CanalStreet). Once the pond was drained, it was filled in with earth from nearby Bayard’s Mount, which was once the tallest point in #lowerManhattan. The city was rapidly spreading north, and elegant buildings were built in the area, which soon became a fashionable district known as Paradise Square. Although the pond had been filled in, the land was poor and noxious, and the buildings started to sink. Genteel New Yorkers swiftly moved uptown, and the area attracted newly arrived immigrants, along with freedpeople and former slaves. By the mid-1820s, the area was known as the Five Points, after the intersection of several intersecting roads. Soon, it was the city’s most notorious neighborhood, known for its fetid living conditions and overcrowding. The streets were filthy and covered in slop and garbage, which attracted pigs and rats.

The Five Points, 1827. There was once a beautiful pond nearby that the Dutch called Kalch Hoek, “lime shell point,” after noticing #oyster  middens left nearby by the natives, who had a small village on its banks called Werpoes, "beautiful village by the thicket." When the British took over, the name of the pond was Anglicized to the Collect Pond, and for many years it was a favorite spot to fish, swim, and ice skate. Folks built cottages overlooking the banks of the pond, but in the years following the #AmericanRevolution , butchers and tanners moved to the area, dumping offal and chemicals into the water. As a result, the pond became heavily polluted, and the city built a canal to drain the pond (the namesake of #CanalStreet ). Once the pond was drained, it was filled in with earth from nearby Bayard’s Mount, which was once the tallest point in #lowerManhattan . The city was rapidly spreading north, and elegant buildings were built in the area, which soon became a fashionable district known as Paradise Square. Although the pond had been filled in, the land was poor and noxious, and the buildings started to sink. Genteel New Yorkers swiftly moved uptown, and the area attracted newly arrived immigrants, along with freedpeople and former slaves. By the mid-1820s, the area was known as the Five Points, after the intersection of several intersecting roads. Soon, it was the city’s most notorious neighborhood, known for its fetid living conditions and overcrowding. The streets were filthy and covered in slop and garbage, which attracted pigs and rats. There were cheap groceries on every corner, which sold immense amounts of beer and liquor to both men and women (women weren’t allowed in saloons). The area was overrun with vicious gangs like the Dead Rabbits and Plug Uglies, who fought openly in the streets, ignored by police (who were often paid off).

In 1802 General Morgan died in this home built by George F. Norton in 1786. Daniel Morgan was a very active figure and land owner in early Frederick and Clarke counties, Virginia. He owned property near present day Boyce, Virginia and frequented Berryville (then Battletown), Virginia as well as Winchester. See my earlier post for more information on Morgan.
