Stars repesent the individuality of each state.     Blue field represents the Union.

13 Stripes represent the original 13 colonies.    White stripes represent the peace between them.

And the RED STRIPES represent the bood spilled to defend it.

My families blood has been spilled in every American war defending it, and will continue to do so.

To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child.

For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history?




We sleep safely in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would harm us.

George Orwell



By Tom Freeman


The Declaration of Independence was the promise; the Constitution was the fulfillment.

At the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention, Ben Franklin was asked, "What have you wrought?"

 He answered, " A Republic, if you can keep it." 


What Archimedes said of the mechanical powers, may be applied to reason and liberty; "Had we,"  he said, "a place to stand upon, we might raise the world."

Thomas Paine -- 1792


When Historians forget that history begins with a good story, They end up talking to themselves.

 The flowers in bud on the trees

 Are pure like this dead child.

 The East wind will not let them last.

It will blow them into blossom,

And at last into the earth.

It is the same with this beautiful life

Which was so dear to me.

While his mother is weeping tears of blood,

 Her breasts are still filling with milk.

 Mei Yao Ch'en--10th Century Chinese poet/philosopher


I am a wave of the sea

And the foam of the wave

And the wind of the foam

And the wings of the wind.

My soul's in the salt of the sea

In the weight of the wave

In the bubbles of foam

In the ways of the wind.


My gift is the depth of the sea

The strength of the wave

The lightness of foam

The speed of the Wind.

 Joseph M. Plunkett --Written in the fall of 1915, just prior to his execution in 1916. Protestant Rebel involved with the Easter Rebellion at the General Post Office in Dublin, Ireland.

The HMS MACEDONIA  under fire from the USS UNITED STATES

U.S.S. United States at sea October 30, 1812.


       I have in the honour to in form you that on the 25th Inst. being in the Lat.29.N. Long.29*.30.W., We fell in with,  & after an action of an hour  & an half, captured his Britannic Majesty's ship MACEDONIAN commanded by Capt. John Carden, and mounting 49. carriage guns (the odd gun shifting)- She is a frigate of the largest class-two years old-four months out of dock, and reputed one of the best sailers in the British service. The enemy being to windward had great advatage of engaging us at his own distance, which was so great, that for the first half hour we did not use our carronades, & at no moment was he within the complete effect of our musketry or grape-to this circumstance & a heavy shell which was on at the time I ascribe the unusual length of the action The enthusiasm of every officer Seaman & marine on board this ship on discovering the enemy, their steady conduct in battle & the precision of their fire could not be surpassed-where all have met my fullest expectations it would be unjust in me to discrimnate. permit me however to recommend to your particular notice my first Lieutenant Wm H. Allen, who has served with me upwards of five years & to his unremitted exertions in disciplining the crew is to be imputed the obvious superiority of our gunnery exhibited in the result of this contest.

 Subjoined is a list of the killed & wounded on both ships our loss compared with that of the enemy will appear small. Amongst our wounded you will observe the name of (Acting) Lieutenant Funk, who died a few hours after the action he was an officer of great gallantry & promise and the service has sustained a severe loss in his death. The MACEDONIAN lost her mizzenmast, fore & maintopmasts and mainyard & was much cut up in her hull. The damage Sustained by this Ship was not such as to render her return into port necessary, and had I not deemed it important that we should See our prize [in?] should have continued our cruise. With the highest consideration and respect I am etc.
