ceadleiriu 74 - The USS Intrepid at Pier 86: the vessels of the US Navy are much larger than those in Commodore John Barry’s time.

In 1745, Barry (no relation) was born in County Wexford. On moving to America, he joined the Continental Navy during the American Revolutionary War, serving with distinction and winning many naval battles. He was the first commissioned naval officer, at the rank of Commodore, in the new United States Navy. President George Washington conferred him with his commission in 1797. He has been called “The Father of the American Navy”. Amongst many memorials the Commodore Barry Park in Brooklyn, was named after him as Barry helped found the adjacent Brooklyn Navy Yard.

cantiveros Now here's a little story I got to tell
About three bad brothers you know so well
It started way back in history
With Ad Rock, MCA, and me, Mike D
Been had a little horsey named Paul Revere
Just me and my horsey and a quart of beer
Riding across the land, kicking up sand
Sheriff's posse's on my tail 'cause I'm in demand

Beastie Boys - Paul Revere

  •   jenwilliams524 One lonely Beastie I be
    All by myself without nobody
    The sun is beating down on my baseball hat
    The air is getting hot the beer is getting flat
    Lookin' for a girl I ran into a guy
    His name is M.C.A., I said...."Howdy" he said, "Hi" 4d

"It is #hardforthemind to encompass the life which embraced the #presidencies between #AndrewJackson and #HerbertHoover.Why, when #MotherJones was a little girl there were people still alive to remember the #AmericanRevolutionaryWar; She died on the eve of the #NewDeal".

joehilwashngton # BattleofOriskany, fought on August 6, 1777,
one of the bloodiest battles in the North American theater of the #AmericanRevolutionaryWar and a significant engagement of the #Saratoga campaign. An American party trying to relieve the siege of Fort Stanwix was ambushed by a party of #Loyalists and allies of several Native American tribes.

don_cerati The #DeWintHouse, #GeorgeWashington’s temporary #Headquarters at #Tappan, #NY on four separate occasions during the #AmericanRevolutionaryWar.
Known as the De Wint House, after the family who owned it during Washington’s visits, it is the oldest surviving structure in #RocklandCounty, #NewYork, and an outstanding example of #Colonial #Dutch #architecture in the #HudsonValley.

I wanted to take better pictures of it, but I guess there was some sort of Masonic meeting going on and the guy directing the parking kept looking at me and hawking me down. So I went to the other side and took this paparazzi shot of the #house. But I'LL BE BACK!...and YEAH, the grass looks that perfect in real life! - 6/29/2014
