George Washington Covenanter Squatters
George Washington Covenanter Squatters
Richard Alan Stewart in his book "Pennsylvania Footprints, A Stewart-Buente Family History", 2002, speculated that Lieutenant William Stewart (1738-1811) may be the same William Stewart, et al, against whom General George Washington brought eviction proceedings, asserting that they were illegal squatters on his holding of 2,813 acres in Washington County, Pennsylvania.

The Furling of the Flags
After the Civil War General Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain of the Union Army wrote two aricles on the events of April 12, 1865 at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia. This article is a somewhat more detailed account than the more poignant "The Last Salute of the Army of Northern Virginia" which follows below.

The Last Salute of the Army of Northern Virginia
The Last Salute of the Army of Northern Virginia
This is a moving account of the events on April 12, 1865, a rainy and cloudy day, at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia. A must reading for those who had forebears in the Civil War. The 155th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry was present on that day and included Company G with men recruited from Richland, Salem and Washington Townships and Company H with men recruited from the Rimersburg area, all in Clarion County, Pennsylvania.

See comments in the Notes Section of Nathan Stewart.

There is also a high degree of probability that Washington Adams Craig was present that day as at the time of Lee's surrender earlier, he was with Corp. G.H. Clover, privates J.C. Barnett, A.G. Lewellen, C.M. Smith, G. Kribbs, of Company K, and William Eich, of Company E, all of the 155th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, in the town of Appomattox where they captured 116 Rebels, including sixteen officers, of whom a colonel was the highest in rank, and marched them into the Union lines. Of the two swords Mr. Craig secured at this time, one he gave to his second lieutenant and the other he still has in his possession.

It is not known whether Lewis Hartman was present that day as he had been captured earlier and was a Prisoner of War at Andersonville, Georgia.

See additional comments in the Notes Section of Milton Stewart, who fought with the 155th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry and was killed at Petersburg, Virginia on June 16, 1864.

The Plantation of Ulster.
The Plantation of Ulster.
In a figurative sense the term "Plantation" is applied to the establishment of new colonies of English, Welsh and Scots in Ireland, chiefly carried out by Elizabeth and James I. The preliminary ground work was, however, laid by Henry VIII, and the first steps were taken during the reigns of Edward VI and Mary.

The Whiskey Rebellion 1791-1795
The Whiskey Rebellion 1791-1795
William Stewart (1738-1811) and his family resided near the South Fork of Cross Creek in Hopewell Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania during the time of the Whiskey rebellion, 1791-1795. His son Galbraith Stewart and his family resided in nearby West Middletown during that period. When President George Washington led the militia into Western Pennsylvania in 1794 they camped at the nearby city of Monongahela. I thought it appropriate to record some of the events of that period.
