You On Behalf Of FROM Miss: Nikki FROM Obama for America You want to end Blog Lech Alex Bajan Polish American

Nowadays big Polish American community is truly proud of important contributions our
ancestors made in the beginning of the 17 th century enabling the survival of the place where the
very foundations of modern America were laid. We also hope that while the incredible Jamestown
story becomes now more popularized and recognized for its importance in America’s history the
crucial role played by Polish pioneers in Virginia will gain wider recognition as well for it was really
significant in the light of some still too little known facts.
The first five Polish settlers who reached Jamestown aboard an English sailing ship, “Mary
and Margaret”, on October 1, 1608, and numerous others who came in the following years,
distinguished themselves in amazing ways. Just consider the following:
three days after their arrival, the Poles dug the first well and gave the English colony a
good source of potable water it had lacked from its very beginning for more than a year;
weeks, the Polish craftsmen started manufacturing glass, tar, pitch, potash, soap ashes
and building materials, becoming thus the pioneers of American industry;
in the fall of 1608, the first cargo of goods manufactured by Poles in Jamestown was
exported to England;
in Virginia responded readily to the need of the colony’s defense. For example, Captain
John Smith, the legendary explorer and leader of Jamestown settlement, credited Poles as his
saviors when he was ambushed by local Native Americans in 1609.
also were the first to fight for civil rights in America. When America’s first parliamentary
body, the House of Burgesses, was established in 1619, and Virginia Poles were excluded from
voting as not being subjects of the English crown, they stopped all the work in their manufactures
till given equal rights in result of this action that some researchers later named as “the beginnings
of Polish Solidarity movement”.
the most American of American sport, baseball, might have been started by Poles in
Jamestown who played a very similar Polish version of the game in early 17 th century.

As a descendent of Tadeusz Kosciuszko his slogan was and is a life today "For Your Freedom & Ours" US General Tadeusz Kosciuszko born in Poland

In 1778, US General Tadeusz Kosciuszko born in Poland was made chief engineer of West Point, New York. This fortification became known as the American Gibraltar because it was unable to be penetrated by the British Army. Eventually West Point became a military academy.

In 1783, Kosciuszko was appointed Brigadier General and was awarded the Cincinnati Order Medal by General George Washington, Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army. Washington also presented Kosciuszko with two pistols and a sword as gifts for his outstanding service to America.

Kosciuszko was a firm believer of equality and requested, before leaving the United States for the second time, that the money from his estate be used to buy freedom for slaves, help to educate them and provide them with enough land to support themselves.

After the colonies won their independence, Kosciuszko returned to Poland in 1784 to help his own country win independence from the surrounding European powers. Kosciuszko was the national hero of the 1794 insurrection. After the successful battle of Raclawice on April 4, 1794, first Warsaw and then Wilno were liberated from enemy occupation. Kosciuszko was wounded in the failed revolt and taken prisoner by the Russians. Upon his release from prison, he returned to America on August 18, 1797, which he considered his "second home." He received a hero's welcome when he reached the Philadelphia waterfront along the Delaware River. Afterward, he secured a residence at 3rd and Pine Streets, which is now the Kosciuszko House, a national memorial to this hero of the American Revolution.

Yes this is all related to today

all post blog content that relates to these goals and understand that it is necessary that the content posted - all blogs are related to our situation as Americans in is and good perceptions of our country United States of America

Tadeusz Andrzej Bonawentura Kosciuszko was the first distinguished military man to come from Europe to aid the Colonists in their fight against Britain, arriving in August 1776. On October 18, 1776, Kosciuszko was offered the rank of Colonel of Engineers. He designed a system of fortifications situated three miles downstream from Philadelphia, to protect from any possible attack by the British fleet. Kosciuszko worked on his fortifications at Billingsport and Red Bank on the Delaware River until April 1777, at which time he followed his commander General Horatio Gates northward to defend the boundaries of the Canadian Frontier.

Gates ordered him to analyze the reinforcement of defenses at Fort Ticonderoga. Kosciuszko familiarized himself with the local topography, and decided that Sugar Loaf Hill would be the ideal spot for a battery of cannons that would defend at long range. General Gates approved this idea, but soon afterwards command changed, and the new chief of the northern army decided that this endeavor was not necessary. Imagine his chagrin when the British approached Ticonderoga and moved their artillery into place atop Sugar Loaf Hill. Kosciuszko utilized his skills instead by fortifying successive retreat camps in the wake of British pursuit.

When General Gates was restored to command of the northern army, he allowed Kosciuszko to select a site to station the army for what was felt to be a decisive confrontation with the British. Kosciuszko chose Bemis Heights along the Hudson River, and fortified it with five kilometers of earthenworks. From this vantage point the Colonists defended themselves in what came to be the turning point battle in the Revolution, the Battle of Saratoga. Six months afterwards, due in large part to the acclamation of General Gates, George Washington assigned Kosciuszko to the fortification of the fortress at West Point on the Hudson.

West Point was Kosciuszko’s greatest engineering achievement. The fortress itself was a polygonal citadel atop a rock face 60 meters above the river. Four additional forts were situated around it, three on nearby hills and the fourth on the river bank itself featuring a 60-ton chain with two-foot-long links meant as a barrier against British ships. Seven redoubts took shape between the forts, and the complex design held 2,500 soldiers. The entire project took two and a half years to complete. Kosciuszko considered it a triumph greater than his victory at Saratoga; he did it with a work force of eighty-two laborers, three masons, and one stone cutter.

In 1778, West Point served briefly as headquarters for General Washington. For years West Point remained the largest fort in America.

Many stories surround Kosciuszko’s time at West Point. He is supposed to have been given a slave, Agrippa Hull, whom he freed immediately, and to have shared his rations with some of the captured British troops. Kosciuszko is also supposed to have laid out a garden that still remains. It is also said that Kosciuszko had not drawn one dollar of pay for his engineering skills, and owned only the one uniform coat that a Philadelphia tailor had sewn for him in 1776.

Kosciuszko went on to fight in the partisan battles of the south as Chief Engineer under General Nathaniel Greene. He orchestrated a series of river crossings as frontline commander, and several engineering projects during the siege of Fort Ninety-six. On December 14, 1782, Kosciuszko rode at the head of General Greene’s units in triumph into Charleston, where he had organized a blockade, the last holdout of the war.

It wasn’t until October 1783 that Kosciuszko received the commendations he so richly deserved. Congress promoted him to the rank of Brigadier General and granted him citizenship; he also was admitted to the Order of Cincinnati, one of only three foreigners cited as outstanding veterans of the Revolution.

After the Battle of Saratoga, Washington wrote a letter to Congress, in which he referred to Kosciuszko as "a gentleman of science and merit" who very much deserved to be remembered. General Nathanial Greene called his chief engineer "one of the most helpful and congenial companions," stressing his "perseverance, determination, indefatigable efforts" as well as his "incomparable modesty," "From one man we can have but one life," President Thomas Jefferson wrote about Kosciuszko, "and you gave us the most valuable and active part of yours, and we are now enjoying and improving its effects. Every sound American, sincere votary of freedom loves and honors you ..."

Jefferson is also credited as saying of Kosciuszko "He was as pure a son of liberty as I have ever known."
