dianajordanop3 Yesterday was one of those days. It is difficult to put into words what it was all about. I have so many thoughts running through my head. I keep everything inside. I am grateful for my husband. When I mentioned about the little cemetery near our house he decided to park so I could visit them. Cemeteries are very dear to me, they are where those who left us physically remain, but so many forget them not only physically but spiritually. This small cemetery has many who fought and even some who died in the #americanrevolutionarywar and some of them have the privilege of their wives and maybe even children buried there. But as you can see from the photo their graves shambles, yes there are flags to signify this person fought for our country but look how it seems no cares. I walked through this cemetery praying for them, talking to them, asking them could they pray for me. I tried to figure out everyone's name so I could remember their names and so I could come and visit them more often. It was in this cemetery I let the tears flow, and I spoke to not only them but to God. When I left the cemetery I felt a calm as if they were letting me know they heard. One could think I am crazy, but I do not care. They are people, not just tacks in books. My husband noticed the change I think he was glad he decided to stop and let me visit. #motheringmyheart @motheringyourheart #prayforsouls 2d

rkwdc Uh-oh. I am not a history professor, but I am fairly certain this was how the #AmericanRevolutionaryWar began -- or the Biggie/Tupac feud. I always get those two conflicts confused. In any event, this promises to be 1776 part 2, which I suppose would be 1777. #EastCoastVsWesternEurope #1777 #DC #BuckinghamPalace #Feud #Served #BringItOn 4d

dshyamili A long hike across a lot of stones and hilly terrain leads to this amazing marble statue built in 1883, standing atop the Mom Rinker's Rock. The rock was dedicated to an American spy who used to sit atop the rock and watch British movements during the occupation of Philadelphia. #visitphilly #history #iphotography #iphoneography #hiking #tolerationStatue #americanrevolutionarywar #nofilter #paoutdoors #discoverpa #explore #hikePA #dayhike 2w

beineckelibrary For Patriot's Day, "A Circumstantial account of an attack that happened on the 19th of April 1775, on His Majesty's troops, by a number of the people of the province of Massachusetts-Bay." Printed by John Howe in Boston, 1775. John Howe, twenty years old at the time, was a loyalist printer and most likely the author of the broadside. His loyalty to the British crown is evident in this "circumstantial" account, which describes how the colonists were first to fire upon the British soldiers, who were under orders not to fire unless fired upon. #PatriotsDay #LexingtonandConcord #BattleofLexingtonandConcord #AmericanRevolutionaryWar #JohnHowe #Broadsides #Boston #BostonHistory #AmericanHistory #LibrariesofInstagram #ExploreYourArchives #1775 #InspiringYale #YaleUniversityLibraries #BeineckeLibrary 2w
