Off to the side of Marion Square in downtown Charleston, just feet from King Street, sits the remains of a large wall which was once called the “Horn Works”. This wall was made of “Tabby” which is a type of concrete that was made from lime, ash, sand, oyster shells and water. The Horn Works was a defense fortification that was constructed in 1759 in order to protect the road into the city. The road, which is modern day King St. entered the city between two rampart-like walls which stuck out like horns. At it’s peak, the wall encompassed 5 acres, housed 18 cannons, and had a 10 yard wide moat on the northern side. Although the Horn Works was instrumental in the defense of the city, this wasn’t enough to stop the British from taking over the city during the Siege of Charleston in 1780. The majority of wall was destroyed in 1784, however, much of it can still be found under Marion Square. . . #charlestonhistory #charleston #southcarolina #gunpowderandindigo #americanrevolution #southernhistory #exploresc

In recognition of Martin Luther King Jr day, we are honored to spotlight an incredible historian from Maryland. Nastassia’s devoted narratives about the African American experience is an absolute asset in historical interpretation. We want to sincerely thank her for the research and knowledge she shares at many events and re-enactments. If you’re in the area please stop by @historiclondontown on January 26th for the Immersion Weekend event and join Nastassia as she retells the story of Maryland’s enslaved in first person interpretation. She also has a brilliant Facebook page and blog that documents her journey as a historical interpreter. https://www.facebook.com/Tiger.LilysThreads/ Read her short biography about her many accomplishments on our FB page! 📸 Credit Wilson Freeman #strength #women #africanamerican #history #americanrevolution #maryland #photography #narrative #historicalinterpretation #americanhistory

Rebecca Nurse Homestead - Rebecca Nurse, convicted and executed in the Salem Witch Trials (1692), was the most notable resident. She was 71 years old at death. Her great-grandson Francis Nurse later occupied the house, marching from it to the Battle of Lexington and Concord in Captain John Putnam's Danvers militia. Francis had married Eunice Putnam in the 1750s and later the Putnam family purchased the property in 1784, and remained residents until 1905. - - #witchesofinstagram #witch #history #salemwitchtrials #salemmassachusetts #salem #rebeccanursehomestead #colonialhouse #revwar #revolutionarywar #americanrevolutionarywar #americanrevolution

See the flag at the top of the Trader Joe’s on Atlantic and Court Street? Supposedly the height of that flag pole marks the height that the old Cobbles Hill used to be. During the Battle of Brooklyn in August 1776, George Washington surveyed his troops from this spot. As he watched these outnumbered troops losing the battle but fighting bravely, he is famous for saying, “Good god, what brave fellows I must lose.” The hill was later flattened by the English in 1783 so it could no longer be used as a vantage point. #gethookedbrooklyn @traderjoes

Margaret "Peggy" Shippen was Benedict Arnold's second wife. She was known for being the highest paid spy in the American Revolution! She was born in Philedephia. After becoming married to Benedict Arnold she began helping him shortly after in May of 1779 with communications with the British. She would sometimes write letters and even letters with invisible ink to General Andre who had became General Clinton's spy chief! After Cornwallis' surrender of Yorktown, the Arnold's left to London. Peggy was courted to the queen Feb 10, 1782. She went back to Philadelphia years later and was not really welcomed. She ended up leaving back to London where she died of cancer in 1804. #herstory #history #facts #benedictarnold #peggy #peggyshippen #americanrevolution #phildelphia #london

The oldest tombstone in Horn Creek Baptist Church cemetery. The Horn Creek Baptist “Meeting Pace”, as it was first called at its founding in 1768, was one of the first Western spiritual and social centers to be built in the South Carolina backcountry. The term “Meeting Place” was a purposeful affront to the Catholics, who during the 18th century were most frequently associated with the term “Church”. The Meeting Place’s location made it a crucial point of strategy for the patriots during the American Revolutionary War, and some battles were fought a mere stone’s toss from its walls. • #americanhistory #ushistory #settlers #revolutionarywar #americanrevolution #colonialhistory #colonial #thirteencolonies #explore #explorer #exploremore #southcarolina #schistory #cemetery #tombstone #meetingplace #christianhistory #vscoedit #vscoworld

centuries in the making, it's not just a monument it's our American History 🇺🇸

💥 American Revolution - Battle of Trenton - December 26, 1776: Faced with "Victory or Death," General George Washington and his faithful soldiers launched one of the most daring operations of the American Revolution. After crossing the ice-chocked Delaware River on Christmas night and struggling through a severe winter storm, Washington and 2,400 troops, many of whom were hungry, poorly clothed, and had broken shoes or no shoes at all, attacked the Hessian garrison at Trenton, New Jersey. The fighting was severe, but it was all over in forty-five minutes or less. After enduring every hardship imaginable, the Americans had finally achieved a victory that gave the public a reason to renew their faith in the fight for liberty and independence. "This is a glorious day for our country," proclaimed an ecstatic Washington. No Americans were killed during the Battle of Trenton and only four were wounded. Hessian losses were more severe, suffering 21 killed, 90 wounded, and approximately 900 taken prisoner. 💥

One of the oft o’erlooked monuments of the Mall is the John Paul Jones Memorial. Erected in 1912 in tribute to the father of the American Navy, the statue also commemorates the fact that JPJ was the first to fly the American flag in an overseas battle. In fact, an image of the flag flying over the Bonhomme Richard (one of the ships gifted by France and commanded by Jones in the American Revolution) was carved into a prison cell door in the prison of Edinburgh Castle. #runningtours #visitdc #seenonmyrun #americanhistory #ihavenotyetbeguntofight #scottishhistory #edinburghcastle #washingtondc #americanrevolution #runningmotivation

The battlefield was a #chaotic place, especially during the American Revolution. For #georgianjanuary, here is an American military ensemble from 1776-1783. This ensemble was worn by a Continental Navy Admiral named Obedeak Herbert, according to the MET. The tail coat jacket, persisted as both formal wear and everyday attire throughout the 19th centuries and the later 20th century. On the bicorne’s medallion, the phrase “E Pluribus Union” (Out Of Many, One) was the old motto of the United State until replaced in 1956.

Had one of those “this is why we do this!” moments yesterday! / / So, yesterday morning, we went to an auction nearby, and one of the first items that came up was this box. “No keys, and it’s locked, but, it looks kinda nice,” the auctioneer said, and I promptly bid without a moment’s hesitation. I was the only one to do so. Fast forward a few hours — we’re back from the auction, and I start to work on some of the new pieces. I am able to pick the lock on this box, only to find therein two keys — clearly made to match the box’s own lock (whoops for whomever dropped them in long ago) — and the single sheet of paper pictured above. / Turns out this box was used by General Peter Gansevoort in the 1779 Sullivan Expedition against the British-allied four Nations of the Haudenosaunee, or the Iroquois. Gen. Gansevoort was also the maternal grandfather of Herman Melville; such a cool piece! And such a shock to discover.

Boston throwback to the time I ordered and devoured the shepherd's pie from The Green Dragon Tavern in Boston, MA. I saw this on Food Paradise and had to try it. The addition of the gravy on top was awesome. The restaurant is one of the oldest in Boston and is historic because the Boston Tea Party was planned in the basement and Paul Revere took off from the Tavern on his famous ride. The aged charm was great. It was a Super damp and rainy day in Boston and this Irish comfort food really hit the spot. Not a true shepherd's pie because it had lamb inatead of beef, so in reality it was a cottage pie. @greendragontavernboston @greendragonboston @edibledelights77 #irish #ireland #irishfood #potatoes #pie #shepherdspie #beef #carrots #peas #gravy #mashedpotatoes #comfortfood #boston #beantown #lunch #delicious #art #love #paulrevere #bostonteaparty #americanrevolution #instagram #greendragon #instagood #instafood #photooftheday #photography #foodgasm #foodporn

During this week in 1776, British Royal Governor James Wright is arrested by American colonists. Wright had been a successful Governor of Georgia. Nevertheless, he could hold back the revolutionary spirit in his colony for only so long. By 1775, Patriots were becoming determined. Wright did not know how to control the rebellion, and he came to the conclusion that he could not govern. He asked for permission to leave his post. Unfortunately for him, matters got worse as he waited for an answer. Patriots took control of the militia and the courts. Georgians were basically in a state of civil war! In December 1775, Wright finally learned that he would be allowed to leave. Why didn’t he lay low after that? He didn’t! Instead, Wright added fuel to the fire. A fleet of British ships had arrived in the area. Wright informed #patriot leaders that the British on the ships would treat anyone with arms “as in a state of rebellion.” Unsurprisingly, the Council of Safety determined that Wright was a danger to #liberty, and it issued a warrant for his arrest. A small group of men went to Wright’s house. He was arrested, even as his dinner guests fled the room. Ultimately, Wright was held under house arrest, with strict orders not to communicate with the British fleet. At first, Wright honored his parole, but he soon became worried and decided to leave. “Governor Wright observed his parole of honor for a time,” the Provincial Congress later noted, “but after nearly four weeks of confinement broke it, and, escaping through a back door of his house, fled in the night time and made his way, under cover of darkness, to an armed British ship anchored in the harbor.” FULL STORY: TaraRoss.com #tdih #ushistory #history #freedom #homeschool #throwback #revolution #americanrevolution #classicalconversations #historybuff #sharethehistory

Here, we have our interpretation of the Light Company in #quebec during the Siege of #quebeccity by #benedictarnold in December of 1775. This is not a "pretend" shot, our Captain in this image is loaded with a live round and actually hits the target at 75 yards, not bad. You'll see the #regimental forage cap, a #blanketcoat and period leggings with 18 bone buttons per leg, to keep the legs below the breeches clean and warm. Period shoes have had a layer of fresh black ball to keep out the water. Join the 8th, defend Canada from the rebel invasion. We are looking for recruits in Ontario and Quebec.
