Adams was fond of referring to him as “...the bastard son of a Scottish peddlar.”

" Video at the link. She's grasping at straws... "

She is polluting the minds of the sheeple, she knows that most of the American sheeple are illiterate and only get their news and view of the world through American Idol.

" We need an image to post every time Kate Parker’s name comes up... "

Like those war on drugs commercials, instead of " This is your brain on drugs " .... it should be " this is your brain on public education and sopping up main steam media's lies " ...

After a thorough search all I could find of Lee’s court martial is that Lord Stirling presided, with both prosecuting officers and defendants lawyers listed as unknown.

No, I never heard that phrase. Must be a Yankee thing.

How do you uppity remarks excuse the sorry Fed Reserve of today?

Do you have any idea of the consequeces of borrowing or printing our way out of debt have had on our current condition?

Thomas Jefferson said:

“To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. If we run into such debts, we (will then) be taxed in our meat and our drink, in our necessities and in our comforts, in our labor and in our amusements. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they (will) be happy.”

Regardless who was under Washington, George Washington didn't seek that power.
He was very reluctant to be the CIC of the Continental Army, and he was called the reluctant President because he didn't want that power, he only took that position out of duty and loyalty of the United States.

It's such an obscure item it does take a lot of searching to discover who the members were.

What you have to do is search for the MEMBER, then for Lee. If you do it the other way around it's just awful.

I've even found the situation referenced in a book on George Rogers Clark, and also in various documents submitted by Revolutionary War soldiers pursuing a government pension in their old age.

If you find a reference that says "Lord Stirling" and not "William Alexander", you are into the wrong reference ~ William's baby daddy was still alive as best I could tell, and he'd already lost a law case in the UK courts about who was the Lord.

There are also THREE major Alexander clan settlements ~ and early writers talked about the settlement areas as if the others didn't exist. Fur Shur they swapped cousins for marriage purposes.

We have a line of Benjamin and William Alexanders running back centuries, and doggone if that's not one devil of a genealogical trail ~ and sometimes a man would have two Williams, and three Benjamins (just in case somebody died there'd be a spare).

" Stick to you guns and keep fighting, Kathleen! Nothing is over until you decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? "

Yes Kathleen, was it over when John Adams from Apollo 13 said " Huston, we have a problem " ????

The only reason liberals are for illegal immigration is because it fits their political agendas well..... if it were so other sort of people, or political ideology, they ( i.e. liberals, Democrats ) would be screaming from the roof tops to stop this illegal immigration.... what if these illegal immigrants there W.A.S.P.S ???

The liberals/democrats want affirmative action illegal immigration, plain and simple.

That’s rather muddled - Jefferson was never an officer under Washington (and in any case seems to be at Monticello at the time) , Hamilton was a witness at the court martial. Not sure if Lafayette was on the court martial but I doubt it since he was under Lee’s command on the day. Burr certainly supported Lee although I’m not sure if Lee was his commanding officer (Burr actually distinguished himself in the battle)

Since posting my earlier comment I’ve been able to track down an account of the court martial in “The Lee Papers”

http://books.google.com/books?id=hFgOAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA1&lpg=PA1&dq=Court+martial+members+%22charles+lee%22&source=bl&ots=cMs6X6eDM2&sig=FnQQfhSFKwvbDdl5DHR1puZZUi0&hl=en&ei=MPLnTIbnMIL-8AbT8unFCQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&sqi=2&ved=0CCYQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&q=Court%20martial%20members%20%22charles%20lee%22&f=false

Which includes the list of members.

Anyone who resided in the United States at the time of the drafting of the Constitution (except for indians and slaves) was considered a citizen.

Washington was the Commander in Chief ~ and Jefferson was a Colonel of the County (militia). That definitely made him an officer.

Now, the rest of the materials, I'll read through your reference to see what you've come up with.

Been a while since I've seen that one, but you'll notice it has an interesting array of witnesses ~ and there are references to "letters". Some write ups vary the situation and have "members" as "witnesses", and others have "witnesses" as "members", and sometimes the writers of the "letters" are present, and other write ups don't mention those folks at all.

I want you to think about this write up a moment. It has ALL the commanders present, or they have sent information about the situation.

Francis Marian isn't there, but it refers to Greene.

Did you catch the reference to Lafayette's "Aide"? Lafayette went around with a large number of people ~ all armed to the teeth, and even had an Oneida multi-member guard! They returned to France with him, and then came back with him upon his celebratory tour of America. I have no idea which Aide Lafayette was referring to in this particular write-up. Wish I did ~ would love to put a name on the man.

The courtmartial transcripts in this write-up are probably as valid as any. The point was to remove General Lee from command ~ and folks had been after that for one long time.

Well, Washington wanted a place close to Mount Vernon. And Alexandria, which he saw as “another”Alexandria, at the mouth of a river leading into the interior. People have forgotten how Washington “pushed” the canalization of the Potomoc. But America lacked the capital or the engineering talent to make this happen.

Had Hamilton ever decided to run for President, he would have been "Grandfathered" in by Article II, so this is a moot point.

BTW, Hamilton tried to set up Aaron Burr in that duel in Weehawken. The pistols, which had trick triggers, were his. Hamilton fired early by mistake. Burr didn't. The pistols turned up a few years back in a Chase Manhattan Bank collection.

I am a Burr guy. Hamilton and Jefferson gave this guy a raw deal every chance they could.

Years ago, I read the novel “Burr” by Gore Vidal, which gives Burr’s side of the story.Vidal is, of course, a descendent of Burr. ( and Jonathan Edwards: the sheer irony is priceless). Burr, says Vidal, was one of the few men whom Andrew Jackson feared, because Jackson was complicit in Burr’s “Texas” project, and turned state’s evidence, so to speak when Burr was accused of treason. Burr was an adventurer who wanted to mount a filibuster into the region west of the Sabine. His partner was Wilkinson who was in charge of the military district in La. Jefferson got word of it and persuaded others that Burr intended to take over the New orleans district. Now Burr was an outstanding soldier who had actually earned that military glory that Hamilton lusted afterward. His coolness during the duel gives a hint of his coolness under fire. But he was not part of the inner clique around Washington, and the General had little use for him. Under other circumstances, Hamilton and Burr would have been friends. They were a heck of alot alike.
