  1. History of Veterans Day World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” - officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.” Soldiers of the 353rd Infantry near a church a

  3. Jacob Hubler, an immigrant from Switzerland, purchased his first tract of land in what is now Bushkill Township in 1743 and over the next decades he would continue to accumulate tracts of land that he would later call Jacobsburg. Hubler became a naturalized subject of the British Crown in 1763, and during the American Revolution he served on Northampton County’s Committee of Observation. Sometime before 1785, Hubler built the Jacobsburg Inn, which served as a store, tavern, and residence. By the time he died in 1789, Hubler’s holdings amounted to about 432 acres. Read more...
  4. A Guild of Contemporary Horn Workers and Collectors In 1996, Roland Cadle of Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, who had long been interested in the historic 18th Century horn trade, conceived the idea of hosting a “Horn Fair” at the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA. The horn fair consisted of a series of seminars and exhibits on the subjects of collecting and making objects from cow horn. It was such a positive experience for those who attended that eleven workers and collectors met afterwards to form a new organization called the Honourable Company of Horners (HCH). The founding members decided that the purpose of the organization would be to promote and preserve the knowledge of horn working. Officers were elected and the members decided to meet each year to hold seminars and conduct business in order to fulfill the mission of the organization. Source: About Us
  5. MUZZLELOADER’s focus on early American and frontier history, and the reenactment thereof, led to the publication of The Book of Buckskinning in 1981. As of 2012 we have produced eight books in the Buckskinning series, as well as many other books on Colonial arms, Colonial and frontier clothing, gunsmithing and history. Source: Muzzle Loader
  6. One of my favorite symbols of our struggle for freedom, is "Join or Die". Today, May 9th, the disjointed snake was created by Benjamin Franklin. How cool is this! "On this day in 1754, Benjamin Franklin published one of the most famous cartoons in history: the Join or Die woodcut. Franklin’s art carried significant importance at the time and is considered an early masterpiece of political messaging." How Ben Franklin's Viral Political Cartoon United the 13 Colonies - HISTORY WWW.HISTORY.COM Franklin’s “Join or Die” cartoon was so eff

  8. I'd like to ask, if anyone can come up with the oldest known woodworker in our earths history. This woodworker needs a name, it cannot be a segment of a society, nor an era of our worlds history such as any of the Big Era's and it cannot be a people in a region such as "The Egyptians". I am looking for a name, it can be in literature of fiction as well, drama, poetry, and of course non-fiction. You can use any venue of research you like, google and such. Yes this is a challenge! No prize at the end, just fun debate.
  9. The Encyclopedia Britannica (Latin for "British Encyclopaedia"), formerly published by Encyclopedia Britannica, Inc., is a general knowledge English-language encyclopedia. It was written by about 100 full-time editors and more than 4,000 contributors. The 2010 version of the 15th edition, which spans 32 volumes and 32,640 pages, was the last printed edition.
  10. Can anyone name the two major/general categories of furniture? It's true, all furniture can be narrowed to two main categories, what are they? No Googling! Your own brain please! By the way, if you've watched Roy Underhill at all, the answer was in one of his episodes, that's how I learnt of this cool subject!
  11. Apparently, General Henry Knox was a bit "rotound", and in the lead up to the Crossing of the Delaware....Col. Glover "insulted" Gen. Knox... "In an Army that hasn't had a good meal in three months, it should be considered Treasonous for the General to fat.." "And, yes, General Knox, I am an uncouth, and profane man....however, you see that Private sitting over there, outside his tent? Cold enough to freeze his balls off, and the man is shaving!
