Stunning Early Images of Revolutionary War Heros

Exceptionally rare because few of the Patriots of 1775-1783 lived
until the dawn of practical photography in the early 1840s.

LEMUEL COOK

Witnessed the British surrender at Yorktown, the event that guaranteed American independence.

Of the event, he said, 'Washington ordered that there should be no laughing at the British; said it was bad enough to surrender without being insulted.

'The army came out with guns clubbed on their backs. They were paraded on a great smooth lot, and there they stacked their arms.'

My family dates back to colonial times..

Concord, NH. (didja get that NSA?)

My Nana was a devout patriot. Instilled it into me. That being said.. my favorite part of this article was this:

EV. LEVI HAYES
A fifer in a Connecticut regiment that raced toward West Point to protect it from an impending attack.
He also participated in a skirmish with enemy 'Cow Boys' at the border of a lawless region called the Neutral Ground (most of Westchester County, New York, and the southwestern corner of Connecticut).
In the early years of the nineteenth century, he helped organize a religiously-oriented land company that headed into the wilderness of what was then the West.
They settled Granville, Ohio, where he was the township treasurer and a deacon of his church.
His daguerreotype shows him holding a large book, most likely a Bible.
------

I live next to Granville. My daughter will be getting a history lesson about this fella. So darn cool!!! Thank you for posting this story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is breath taking! Amazing!

Knowing that these people were eye witnesses to the revolution, and even George Washington and Alexander Hamilton, is amazing! Love it! Thank you for posting

There's hope for American news media yet...

Anyone who says news services don't respect the rich history of this nation and the proud history of our independence needs to read this article.

The article is from the Daily Mail, United Kingdom.

Pretty sad.



Although the "feed" on the sidebar was labeled "FEMAIL TODAY" and clearly was for the gals; it is sad that some folks still give a rats patooie about what Bitchney Spears is doing on the Independence Day.

And the article was not from an American news service, but the Daily Mail in the United Kingdom!
The American news seems to be preoccupied. Go figure!

Knowing there wasn't photography back in the 1700's and really didn't start until after the 1st quarter of the 18th. These had to be later photos, they are all senior. But, interesting and informative. They all look to fit the bill of a harsh lifestyle.

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

Yeah find me five 100 year old today. Harsh?

US spend more on health care than all world put together. US is 60th in longevity.

Poor countries have 40 times the 100 year old we do.

Yet we waste billions pretending MD have and expensive magic cures. The statistics are conclusive. US Health Care is an expensive fraud and can be used as a killing machine.

MDs get paid whether the patient lives or not! Ooopsy. Gonna need another Timmy.

Free includes debt-free!

I too thought it was

I too thought it was interesting that so many of these men had such long lives. I've been doing historical and genealogical research for many years now and aside from early death from war or an accident, it sure seems most people were living well into their 90's.

Too true. The deception is in the words 'average lifespan' vs.

Average for those who live past 12 years of age, when most childhood diseases are apt to occur.

Yet even having cured most of these diseases, the average lifespan has STILL declined! One could argue that this is because so many of the 'weak' were allowed to live when historically they wouldn't have, but this also becomes an indictment of the medical complex since they aren't helping anyone in the aggregate, the healthy OR the weak, to live longer or for that matter happy/healthier lives...
