paoli massacre

William Shepherd’s article [Hallowed Ground, May 2020] on the 1777 Battle of Paoli in Pennsylvania, in which 53 American Patriots were killed in what may or may not have been improper conduct by the British, reminds me of the short memory of Scots fighting for the British. Hadn’t the Scottish Highlanders had their rear ends kicked just 31 years before at the April 16, 1746, Battle of Culloden? The British killed and stole land from the Scots, yet the latter were still willing to war against Americans fighting for freedom? Wow! It reminds me of how French Canadians were badly beaten in the French and Indian War yet still fought on the British side in the American Revolution. The English mistreated the Scots and Irish for hundreds of years, yet…

military museums adapt to national shutdown

The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted military museums nationwide to rethink their business models in recent months. Some have reopened within recommended health guidelines, while most have ramped up their digital offerings, allowing “visitors” to peruse exhibits and artifacts from afar. For example, the National Museum of the Pacific War [pacificwarmuseum.org], in Fredericksburg, Texas, has launched two programs on its YouTube channel—”Nimitz Minitz,” a series of three- to seven-minute videos geared to elementary and middle school students, and “Highlights and Insights of the Pacific War,” for kids 12 and up, focusing on specific aspects of the war through related exhibits and artifacts. The National WWII Museum [nationalww2museum.org], in New Orleans, offers online lesson plans, daily webinars and electronic field trips for distance learning, provides some 1,000 oral histories in its digital collection…

v-j day 75th still in works

Given the coronavirus pandemic, Allied nations staged minimal observances of the 75th anniversary of V-E Day (May 8) this year. A coalition of military organizations [75thwwiicommemoration.org] still plans events in Hawaii and invites veterans to share their stories online to mark the forthcoming anniversary of V-J Day (September 2). On that day in 1945 representatives of imperial Japan formally surrendered to Allied dignitaries aboard the battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay, ending World War II.…

researchers find storied uss nevada

Maritime researchers off Hawaii have pinpointed the wreck of USS Nevada, the only battleship to have gotten underway during the Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Sent to the harbor bottom by damage from a torpedo and a half-dozen bombs, Nevada was floated and repaired, saw action in the Atlantic and Pacific, survived nuclear tests at Bikini Atoll in 1946 and was sunk as a target by naval gunfire in 1948. The battleship was a veteran of both world wars. Launched in 1914, it served as a convoy escort in 1918. That December 13 Nevada, nine other battleships and 28 destroyers escorted the interned German ocean liner George Washington into harbor at Brest as the latter transported President Woodrow Wilson and U.S. representatives to France to negotiate the Treaty…
