Updated Revolutionary War Site Locator

Well, it is now April 17, 2013. I have been working on my Revolutionary War Site Locator and have updated many entries. There are still many places to check, and some of my current information is probably incorrect. Helpful comments are always welcome.

The information is location, state, county, USGS Geographic Names Information System Feature ID, and type of location. I also include notes underneath entries to help explain the location.
Using the GNIS http://gnis.usgs.gov and entering the feature ID number will lead to a gazetteer entry. Clicking on the feature name will lead to more information about it, and a list of map and satellite photographs about the place.

Location State Name County or District Name Feature ID No. Type

See the entry Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail for a National Park Service Website with maps and text about

the campaign journey from Rhode Island to Yorktown, Virginia in 1781

[This is the location of a Revolutionary War Prisoner of War camp where soldiers from British General Burgoyne's army

that surrendered at Saratoga were marched to. It is located in the town of Rutland, Massachusetts. There was a state prison

camp in the same area from 1903-1933 that was for prisoners with tuberculosis. It was closed in part because it was located

on the Ware River, which may be part of the watershed for the Quabbin Reservoir which was about to open as part of the Boston

area water supply.]

An interesting part of my research has been trying to find old ferry crossings and fords in rivers and streams that were shallow enough for men, horses, and wagons to cross from one shore to the other. More on that in the future.

Revolutionary War Place Locator

I have been updating the information in my blog entry titled Locator of Revolutionary War…, and have also started researching a list of places referred to by the Marquis de Lafayette which are not in the Locator.

What a situation I have encountered. One source says that the Paramus New Jersey of the 1700s is now Ridgewood, New Jersey, Tinicum Island, Pa. is now included within the grounds of Philadelphia International Airport, Hog Point, Virginia could one of two different Hog Point, Virginia locales, Fredericksburg, New York might now be West Patterson, New York, Bergen Neck could be Bergen Neck, or it could be Bayonne, New Jersey.
I could go on with others, but you see the problems that I encounter, and I am sure that the U.S., British, and Hessian forces encountered back in the 1700s.
I will interleave the lists with each other and repost the locator in the future.

Swords awarded by the Marquis de Lafayette

One of the most frequently told stories about Daniel Shays is that he sold a sword presented to him by the Marquis de Lafayette, was criticized and ostracized by other officers, and this was one of the reasons that he resigned from the Army in late 1780.
A publication that I read, but did not make a bibliographic citation record at the time, stated that the Marquis de Lafayette brought 20 swords from France when he returned to the United States in 1780. I recently wondered if I could find information about other people who received a sword from Lafayette for gallant and heroic actions.
I have used search engines using these terms”
“received a sword” +Lafayette to try to find web pages with information. I also read the volumes of Lafayette in the Age of the American Revolution: Selected Letters and Papers to see if he wrote about awarding swords. There is no correspondence that makes refers to awards.
Here is the list of names that I have compiled. I will leave it up to my blog readers to go search for web pages that make reference to these people and Lafayette swords.
1. Stephen Badlam, Dorchester, Massachusetts
2. James Bradford, Massachusetts
3. Robert Bradford, Massachusetts, 1750-1823
4. Israel H. Buker
5. Percival Pierce Butler, who later became the Adjutant General of Kentucky. A Kentucky National Guard web page
6. Elias Cornelius
7. Thomas Dougan
8. James Giles
9. Jeremiah Keeler
10. David Kirkpatrick
11. John Neilson
12. Stephen Ranney
13. Daniel Shays
14. William Shepard
15. David Smith [brother of Ebenezer Smith, Massachusetts]
16. Joseph Wardwell
17. Roger Welles

I think that the Marquis de Lafayette also presented swords to others that had been taken from British or Hessian
officers in battles at which Lafayette and the recipient had been combatants. Another publication about Lafayette’s visit to the United States in 1824 says that an unnamed person at Hudson, New York gave back a sword to Lafayette
that he said had been given to him by Lafayette. Another source says that Lafayette also presented swords and received some swords during his 1824 trip.
An early 19th century biography of Lafayette found in the Internet Archive or at Project Gutenberg says that he gave swords to each officer of his Light Infantry Corps when he assumed command in July or August, 1780. The composition of the Corps is described in his letter to the Viscount de Noailles dated September 2, 1780. The two brigades of this corps were commanded by General Enoch Poor and General Edward Hand.
I wish that I had an easy way to find a list of the officers in his Light Infantry Corps!

Some questions and research projects about Daniel Shays and the Rebellion of 1786-1787 [with some updates]

I am putting my Daniel Shays Rebellion research aside for an indefinite time. Here are some questions that I would research if I go back to the project.
[Updates available for 1, 23]
1. Was Daniel Shays in a unit commanded by the Marquis de Lafayette? An affadavit for a Revolutionary War pension says that he served in Woodridge’s Regiment, Putnam’s Regiment, Varnum’s Regiment, participated in the Battle of Stony Point, New York, and served under Lafayette.
2. The date and place where Lafayette presented him with a special sword.
3. The event for which Shays was selected. I think that it was his participation in the Battle of Saratoga.
4. If Shays sold the sword, who bought it, where was it sold, and the selling price.
5. The names of the officers who criticized/ostracized Shays for selling the sword.
6. Who was farming Shays’s farm in Pelham, Massachusetts when he was serving in the army. He was married and his wife worked on the farm, but were there farm laborers on the proplerty.
7. The website shaysrebellion.stcc.edu says that Shays owned 251 acres of land. How much land did he start with when he moved to Pelham, how did he acquire additional land, and did he have to sell parcels to pay debts.
8, What happened to Shays’s land after he fled to Vermont in 1787? Did he ever return to Massachusetts?
9, He was in Vermont, and was reported to be underarrest in either Brattleborough or Bennington at some time. When was he released and why?
10. Lawsuits about Shays: plaintiffs, cause of action, date of filing of action, amount of damages sought and debt owed. What lawyers filed the suits, and what were the outcomes?
11. Shays participated in demonstrations at the Northampton and Springfield courthouses in 1786. Who were the people or organization located around Rutland, Massachusetts about 30 miles east of Pelham, in Worcester County, who asked Shays to come and organize a protest grooup. Shays wrote or told others after Springfield that he was the original organizer.
12. Colonel Rufus Putnam, Shay’s regimental commander in the 4th Massachusetts and the 5th Massachusetts, moved to Rutland after the end of the war. Did he meet Shays or have contact with Shays before the march towards Springfield?
Putnam marched with Gneral Lincoln and the militia troops that came from the Boston area to catch Shays group.
13. From what towns and cities did the 1,200 to 1,500 men reside who participated in the attempted takeover of the arsenal. The volume of the Massachusetts Archive with the names of the oaths of allegiance has been microfilmed. Where can I get a copy of this microfilm, or a listing of who participated.
14. A group fo 1200 to 1500 would have been equivalent to 3 regiments of militia. How was the group organized? Were there men appointed as Captains, Lieutenants, Sergeants, Privates as companies?
15. What type of provisoins and forage did the group have while they were training? Where were they training on whose property in what town?
16. I think that the route of march was Rutland-[unknown town]-wilbraham-Springfield. The route of route was Ludlow-Amherst/Pelham-Shutesbury-New Salem-Petersham. I think that a normal day
s travel for a marching unit at the time was about 16 miles a day. Is this right or wrong?
17. One book, and only one says that the retreat was over the Notch in the Mount Holyoke mountain range, down into Amherst. In the 1950s and 1960s, [Massachusetts Route 116] was a narrow two-lane road with a wire guard rail and a precipice. One mountain on the east side of the notch has been blasted down to flat and a gravel rock quarry closed. Is this the correct route, or did the people march along the route of present day Route 47 along the Connecticut river to around the foot of Mount Holyoke into Hadley, then march into South Amherst and then north to the East Street Common area and camped there?
17. What happened to Luke Day’s followers in West Springfield and Westfield? Day had decided to wait a day before attacking, but the message sent to Shays was intercepted. What did that group do next, just disperse?
18. What did General Lincoln and the state militia do to protect the magazine with muskets and gunpowder after the retreat?
19. What units of the state militia marched with General Lincoln out to Springfield? Were there units and soldiers of militia units that refused to join the militia force? I think that some Worcester county companies and regiments refused to join the state force.
17..What did the Confederation Congress do before and after the Shays Rebellion incident to assist states to protect federal property.
20.What laws of government were passed by the Massachusetts legislature during the Revolution era and the years through 1790.
21. Colonel Timothy Bigelow of Worcester, who had been a POW in Canada during an early invasion of Canada, but was released and returned to the state where he rejooined the Army. Timothy Bigelow died in the Worcester County jail as an imprisoned debtor in 1790. When did Massachusetts repeal its debtor prison laws?
2. I think that George Washington encountered Daniel Shays three or more times during the years 1775 to 1780. The first time might have been at Boston when Shays was recently promoted from Sergeant to Ensign or Lieutenant, when Washington thanked the troops who took the fort at Stony Point, New York in 1779, and perhaps at a time when Shays was an officer in Rufus Putnam’s regiments 1777-1780, or with Varnum’s Regiment, or if Shays was serving in a unit commanded by Lafayette.
23. If Shays was so notorious, why have I not found any references in books, memoirs, or diaries of other people that refer to having been in the same unit as Shays.
23. [Update: The Daniel Shays in Rennselaerville was Daniel Shays Jr. . Daniel Shays named his first son Daniel Shays, Jr., so this person living in New York might be his son. I still do not know where Daniel Shays the elder was living, except that he is listed in the 1790 census volume about Heads of Families. Shays was living at [where?] when the 1800 census was conductee, in Renselerville (wrong spelling) New York in 1810, and moved to Sparta, New York in 1814. Exactly where in each community was his residence. From whom did he buy his farms. I know that at least one other soldier from the 5th regiment moved to a town that is about 30 miles east of Sparta, somewhere near Cayuga Lake. Were he and Shays in contact after the war? Did Shays maintain contact with other veterans of his old regiments after the war, either before or after the rebellion. I do know that his 1775 company commander from Amherst, Reuben Dickinson, was among those who participated in protests at either Northampton or Springfield in 1786.
There are a lot questions to be researched. A lot of documentst and letters that could help answer the questions may no long exist.
Well, on to another project for an indefinite period of time.

Locator of Revolutionary War Places and Battles

I am creating a “geographic locator” of locations that are related to the 1756-1763 War [also known as the French and Indian War, U.S. Revolutionary War, 1775-1783, and the Shays Rebellion, 286-1787.
The war of 1756-1763 tested the colonial militia, the Royal Army and Royal Navy, the military forces of France. George Washington was a Colonel in the Virginia militia. British and provincial militia units participated in the same battles. The British were usually not impressed by the performance of the provincial militias. Many militia officers at the start of the Revolutionary War had gained military and battle experience in the earlier war. Many of the problems that came to light in the first war persisted throughout the Revolutionary War. Loyalist militias were operating in most states from New York south to Georgia.
Lord Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown in the fall of 1781, but the last British troops did not leave the U.S. until 1783.

The information appearing below is what I have input so far.

The Feature ID No. a 6 or 7 digit number is a number in the U.S. Geological Survey Geographic Names Information System http://gnis.usgs.gov

Enter the ID no. of an entry into the GNIS query system and the system will return a directory . Click on the Feature Name, and the the web page will be a "Feature Detail Report". Information about variant names and citation to the source of citation is available Nine mapping services provide connections to current topography and satellite imagery.

There are online collections of historic topographic maps that go back to about 1889, such as one at the University of Texas Austin. http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/topo . I hope that people who use my locator to find a place, consult a current or historic topographic map and current satellite imagery can develop a better understanding of events that occurred at locations, and how military leaders made decisions.
Some places had a name in the Revolutionary War era but a different name in this era. The
"Menotomy, Massachusetts" of 1775 is now known as Arlington, Massachusetts. Two counties in North Carolina have disappeared, but each one is now split among two or more other counties.
Any river, including the Mississippi River, is a "stream" in the USGS system. The U.S.G.S. GNIS system for giving river or stream locations starts at the mouth of the water body, so the frist record for the Mississippi is down in Louisiana, and goes northward into Minnesota.
Every mountain is known as a summit, except when it is a ridge, or something else like an elevation.
This project is an offshoot of my research into the Daniel Shays's Rebellion of 1786-1787 in Massachusetts. I wanted information about the topography of Western Massachusetts, the route of march towards the armory at Springfield, and the routes of retreat to Amherst, Pelham, and on to Petersham, where most of the remaining insurgents were captured. I wanted to come up with a likely route of march from Amherst to Petersham. I think that it is Amherst-Shutesbury-New Salem-Petersham.
The list below is the latest revision of my list. I will work on putting each place record on one on two lines.

The alternative careers of people who graduated in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s may be different because personal computers became part of the work tools of all library staff. The internet first became available to the general public in the early 1990s. Occupations like web developer, did not exist until the 1990s and later.
One way to locate people in alternative occupations is to search for word combinations like facebook, linkedin library science and an occupation or industry
I will search for information about the group from the 1990s and first years of the 2000s, and post new information here. Tom Lindsey, MLS 1975

A silly costume idea for costume events

A friend has started working at a charitable organization resale store. There are many outfits that can be purchased at great prices and used for costume parties.
For ladies who remember the song titled, Devil with the Blue Dress On, a blue dress and a face mask could be a costume.
As for myself, I am costuming as “Inspector Clothesno” of the dreaded FASHION POLICE. I picked out a brown and black tartan pattern men short trouser, a blue, aquamarine, purple, and white tartan pattern shirt, a paisley print tie, and two baseball caps wearing one brim forward and the other brim backward. I am wearing black socks with my sneakers.
“Inspector Clothesno” is on an undercover police assignment as a tourist. I don’t want to have my expensive camera misplaced or stolen, so I will take along a 27 exposure disposable camera that I bought at a drugstore.
Costume cost low, and I can donate the clothing back to the store for future resale. What are your plans for a costume party costume?

What federal employees should do during their furloughs

In September, 2009, I sent an email to syndicated columnist Jim Pawlak, author of the Career Moves column, titled “What I did on my furlough day.”
I myself was not furloughed, but many employees of the city of Dallas, Texas began a series of mandatory furlough days during the city fiscal year that began September 1, 2009. It was the Labor Day holiday weekend, and I thought about where I was in my work life and what the future might hold.
So, I wrote a list of things that I would do if I really were on furlough or lost my job. Mr. Pawlak polished it up a bit, and it was published in newspapers around the country on October 4, 2009.
It was published in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on page 5D.

I found it again in a Palm Beach, Florida newspaper.
This is a URL link to it:

I would move number 19, about calling my wife, to the top of the list.

Texas as Independent Nation: My Speech at a Toastmasters International Meeting

Unfortunately, I ran overtime, beyond the 7 minute, 30 second limit, and I still more to say. I chose the Ukraine as the model nation, because it is about the same size area as Texas, has a seacoast (Black Sea, we have the Gulf Coast), has other countries bordering it just as Texas has another nation Mexico, and states like New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana. The Ukraine had and may still have military bases of another nation.
Texas would have to figure out its relations with the U.S. about Fort Bliss, Naval Station Ingleside, all the U.S.A.F. bases, and U.S. Coast Guard bases. I tabulated some of the current federal government functions, post office, copyright, patent and trademark, trade negotiations with other nations, customs, immigration, naturalization, regulation of radio and television stations, and many other things. And what do we do with all the native Texas citizens convicted of felonies or misdemeanors in the remaining 49 states and all the territories and commonwealths of the United States that are deported back to Texas? I think that there are about 2 million prisoners in U.S. correctional facilities. Texas is about 25/312 of the current U.S. population, so we would get back at least 160,000 deportees from those currently in correctional facilities. Then they would try to start deporting the rest of the Texans ever convicted of a felony but residing in the U.S.
Becoming independent in 1836 was a far less complicated project than becoming an independent nation in the 21st century.
I think a senior year undergraduate student could write a very interesting honors thesis about what happens after newly independent nations are established, and lessons to be learned for a Texas independence movement.
