Brigadier General John Stark


Brigadier General John Stark, who stood against the odds and did not yield
Remember that trip I took and how I stopped off and went to a Revolutionary War site? Well, here's a picture I took there. (Click on the "read more" link down below to see a full sized picture of it all.)

Stark was pretty damn cool. This was the Battle of Bennington, which was a necessary precursor to the battle of Saratoga where the Americans actually turned the tide of the war and made it possible to... well, win the whole Revolution. Stark's famous battle cry was "There they are, boys! We beat them today, or Molly Stark sleeps a widow tonight!"

Well, it was pretty damn cool at the time. This was before "It's Clobberin' Time" had been coined, you know.

Anyway, this was a test of Photon, which is an addon for iPhoto to let me export pictures into this here site without having to wrestle quite so much. I like things that make things easier.

I first read this as "Brigadier General John Snark."

Which would be even cooler.

There are some members of my family that claim direct descendancy from General John Stark. I am not so sure. If I could access a family tree from his lineage it would help a lot. If anyone can provide this information please contact me at the above e-mail address.
