Don't Tread on Me

Americans across the country are rediscovering the "Don't Tread on Me" slogan. Many are part of the new Tea Party Movement protesting massive government spending and bailouts. What would the founding fathers think of all this? This blog post on the historical context of the 1773 Boston Tea Party is food for thought.

This highly readable e-text includes a Revolutionary War timeline, the causes of the Revolution, the story of the Declaration of Independence, Bunker Hill, Yorktown, and much more.

Founding Father Family Trees and Bios

WikiTree is my new collaborative history project. Participants have started pages for Green Mountain Boy Ethan Allen, giant Virginian Peter Francisco, philosopher-entrepreneur Benjamin Franklin, bold Declaration-signer John Hancock, Federalist John Jay, President Thomas Jefferson, financial wizard Haym Salomon, General Henry Knox, President James Madison, rabble-rouser Thomas Paine, flag seamstress Betsy Ross, and cousin-of-George Lieutenant Colonel William Washington. There are also interesting pages for Founder of the Daughters of the American Revolution founder Flora Adams Darling and anthem-writer Francis Scott Key. Please check out WikiTree. You might be able to contribute something about one of the founding fathers, or you might want to start your own family history.
