John Mellencamp Sits for National Anthem Before Colts-Eagles Game

"John mellencamp. He's still a thing apparently. He's 71 years old. And Mellon camp's music has been used by a lot of politicians over the years. He's one of these, what he's from Indiana, one of the heartland guys, sings about blue collar workers, but the guys are raging leftist, as a matter of fact, he once said that the problem with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is they were not liberal enough. So anyway, mellencamp portrays himself as like, you know, I'm down with the people kind of a guy. Well, over the weekend, he was at the Indianapolis game. Was it Indianapolis and Philadelphia? Big football game, and he was spotted inside a luxury suite because we all know that regular Joe's just hang out in the luxury suites. And he was stuffing his face with popcorn and his butt was in the seat. During The Star-Spangled Banner. So we got a picture of it up on the website, someone snapped a photo. Sport says mellencamp is one of America's greatest frauds. And the reality is this guy is a radical, radical leftist. But really, I mean, this guy can't muster the courage to stand up for 90 seconds. And show a little bit of respect to the men and women who fight for our freedom, he can't do that. I mean, come on. No, I don't know. I don't know if it was orville redenbacher. I don't know what kind of popcorn it was, Kyle, I'm sorry. But probably some of that, I don't know. Organic unsalted popcorn. The stuff without the butter.

"philadelphia" Discussed on The Suburban Women Problem

"Everyone. This is Rachel vindman, and I am on the final stop of my troublemaker tour. I am sitting at a kitchen table in chalfont, Pennsylvania, which is a suburb of Philadelphia. And I'm joined by two women who know all too well how bad things have gotten here in bucks county. So Tracy and Jamie, in case you introduce yourselves and tell us a little bit about you. Hi, Rachel. I'm Tracy suits. I am a former school board member and school board president in the central school district. I ran in 2017 and served a four year term until 2021. I did not seek reelection, but governed through the pandemic. I have three kids who were in the central box school district when I was on the board there and have been kind of running the age range through all of the schools and fighting through the things we fight through. Jamie? Hello, hello. My name is Jamie Davis. I am a 35 year old black queen raising a black son. I recently ran for school board last year, currently I'm working from home, my son is 11. Just running around being a mom. I love it. Shout out to moms of 11 year olds. Between life is real. So we're just gonna jump into it here. Bucks county is unfortunately a bit infamous for having extremists on the school boards. I won't hold it against you personally. I know you've both done a lot to work on that and to counterbalance it, but we actually interviewed a mom on the podcast a few weeks ago who told us about Paul martino. I am very curious about that. He's a venture capitalist, I understand who poured half a $1 million into getting extremist on school boards across Pennsylvania. Tracy, you were a school board president until 2021. So could you tell us a little bit more about Paul and the influence of what he's doing? Yeah, I actually had never heard of Paul martino even though I had been on the school board and he has children in the district. I'd never heard of him at all until late in 2020 when he started a series of town halls in central box specifically to talk about pandemic response. And his platform was basically candidates who want schools to be open. Even though our schools were open, our schools were 100% open, his platform was, I will give money to any candidates who agree and want schools to be open. That happened to align mostly with Republican candidates and he offered $10,000 to any candidate who would run under that assumption. That attracted a lot of more extreme and what I would say even radicalized candidates throughout the county and that offer of 10,000 per candidate was across the state, which is where that half $1 million comes from. That's just so disturbing that one person could skew take things completely out of context, but have so much influence. Jamie, you ran for school board and palisade school district, which is also here in bucks county. What made you decide to run? And what was your experience like when you did run?

"Spread the floor. But also, you look at their approach and you look at the way they are individually. And you have to say, well, what's going on with there? You know? You look at both of them shooting terribly, especially when there's something needed them to do the complete opposite. And it's like, well, how can they figure out how to compliment each other? That's something we've been talking about. All season long. But when you look at a huge matchup like this, against the Philadelphia 76ers and they both, you know, neither one of them can put something together. I mean, what does that say about the team? Or at least what does it say about email? You know, this thing is going to take longer and you want them to continue to push me to spread the ball and to stick with the stick with the program. But that's going to take longer than I think that we all thought that it would. So and you talk about what he can do and again, this is going to be, you know, back to it. One job is to motivate the players to play, which again, I just don't know that that's necessarily his job. I know he took the bullet, but those guys have to be out there on their own. This idea that I mean, we spend all the last year with a lot of people saying, Brad doesn't have these guys ready to play. And I thought that was nonsense too. I think they might have tuned him out. I think they might have needed a new person in their ear. But it obviously doesn't matter because at this point you have enough sample size to say, I don't think it's a coach, guys. It's not the coach. I don't think it's a motivation. So if you may want to help, you are in close your eyes and start to throw darts and see if you hit something mode. So I know Bobby you said Pritchard, we have talked about grant going away from double big. We have talked about flipping, starting lineups and changing a couple of rotational things. That would be the first thing I would do to change. Because if the players aren't going to change their behavior, you may instead of trying to find ways to reach them, should try to find something different to try. And he hasn't yet not anything real. It's still when he has everybody healthy. He's doing the same stuff. Maybe he might play one guy a little more than another or change a closing unit from time to time, but he is not embraced an idea of a wholesale change to see if that unit works better. And again, we're talking about the whole being greater than the sum of the parts. So for the love of God, why not try to not do double big once and see if it happens, you know? Just try it. You know, and then see what the second unit looks like with Horford there. Split Schroeder and smart. You know, try to not play him at the same time. Just some of the women in the amount of stuff you can do. They can try some things..

"Position was now. What's happening right now. Is that as the city continues to do this. The city is losing money. There was incentivisation of getting juvenile's back into juvenile custody. That was incentivized by federal grants. Federal money coming through cities not getting that money because they continue to hold a relatively small number of juveniles in adult custody so it is sadly something that is beyond our control. But it's something. It's an area in which we continue to advocate for improvement. You have this long career. A civil rights attorney in the city can tell us a little bit especially for those listeners who are unfamiliar with you. What kind of pass did you come from in. Why did you i guess. An manner speaking switch sides. Oh i never switched sides but i'm happy to answer your question so my legal career was primarily doing criminal defense work. I came out of law school. And when i came out i applied both to prosecutors offices and to public defenders offices. This is nineteen seven Did a lot of interviews had offers from both sides but ultimately at that time in that culture i was just much more comfortable with the public. Defenders seem to share my values and seem to have a sense of humor is much more comfortable in so i became a public defender in philadelphia for three years in the county system tried a lot of cases and then i became a federal public defender doing nothing but federal cases for broke people and then i set up my own office About mayor good appointed me to be on a commission to investigate what was effectively a police riot against hiv aids activists. I ended up as a third year. Attorney on this blue ribbon panel. Did this investigation of this particular incident. And i realized during that process that while i loved you know criminal offense that i wanted to be able to do civil rights cases as well Because i had such a deep affection for protesters and activists and the important work that they do and philly was a place where they just kept getting arrested for no good reason and prosecuted so the next twenty five years of my career was spent with a combination criminal defense work at every level. We're talking underage drinking. we're talking triple murders. I came to the end of that thirty or cycle watching another. Da's race that was gearing up and it was the usual suspects who are running. They were not serious about reform they were using a lot of the old language And to some extent could take him. I watched this slow motion car. Crashing courtrooms thirty years.

"I guess you could say under frank. Rizzo that guess. It's the most incarcerated city. Essentially terms of like percentage of incarceration per capita. And so. i just think that of oh for you seems to be for them. I would think in offensive against that sort of philosophy. That has not only imprisoned a lot of their neighbors and family and friends but also has them consistently living in a culture of fear without actual solutions. You know. I think that's absolutely right but one thing left doesn't really talk about. Is that when you go into the same neighborhoods and you talk to women who have lost their sons. It's almost always sons to gun violence. You know in philly. There are only solving twenty percent of shootings before the pandemic and that low rate of solving cases went down. They were only solving. You know something. Like forty percent forty to fifty percent of homicides and that rate went down. These are lousy levels of solving cases that we're seeing in those areas and that is something that is felt just as dearly by people living on a particular block as the unjust incarceration of who is either innocent or guilty of something but got far too much time in a system that was unfair and did not afford a proper trial. Or you're out. The problem is quite deep. There are a lot of people in poor black and brown neighborhoods feel unsafe on safe from gun crime but also unsafe from what police and prosecutors have been doing to them for decades and they're right there right on both fronts philadelphia being the most incarcerated big city in america. I know that you've run against the car. Several state but i understand that the number of people jailed in philadelphia have increased by thirty percent just in the last year. Can you offer an explanation for that. That doesn't have to do with your performance or is it just something that had to do with the pandemic. What exactly is behind that. So you know this is a city where not so many years ago there were fifteen thousand people county custody. By the time i took office there had been some good efforts to reduce it. When i took office in twenty eighteen january of two thousand eighteen we had sixty five hundred. That number was down to.

The former lawyer from philadelphia turned down an offer to become the state's chief justice as i said he did take a position in the continental congress and on the executive council read also seemed to be a hardcore idealist. Like many leaders. He had lost a personal fortune. As a result of the war general. How had once offered read a ten thousand pound. Bribe to become an advocate for reconciliation in other words for the loyalist side. Read turn it down cold and reported. The incident read strongly supported the radical effort to punish any tories who remained in philadelphia. It wasn't just the leadership that wanted punishment. The people of philadelphia were demanding it many of the wealthier families who got through the british occupation unscathed now found rocks being thrown through their windows or being assaulted as they walk down the street. Many moderates were concerned if things could quickly spin out of control and into a reign of terror but given the popular sentiment. It seemed that there would have to be some examples. Made in the end twenty. Three men were indicted by philadelphia grand jury and put on trial for treason against the state by collaborating with the enemy. Ten more were indicted for other capital crimes. The courts however tended to be dominated by moderates. Most of the accused were wealthy. Men who hired good defense lawyers. These lawyers knew who to put on the jury who did not want to see their neighbors die for doing something that they had to do during the occupation in the end only four were convicted of treason and two of.

"To enforce these restrictions for a region having suffered from the deprivations of war. Arnold did not make a good first impression. He arrived in philadelphia in a coach and four then proceeded to occupy the penn mansion. The former home of the colonial governor and most recently occupied by general william. How the british had stripped the mansion other way out. So arnold spent a small fortune refurbishing the house buying new furniture and hiring servants for the people of philadelphia any of whom were starving and under a banned from engaging in any business. This extravagance seemed outrageous. Arnold had been a wealthy merchant before the war but the intervening years had destroyed. His business is fleet of ships was long gone much of his personal funds that he had spent on. Behalf of the army was never repaid. Congress had not even bothered to pay his salary in the two and a half years that he had served. Arnold seems to have decided that he was entitled to make a little money from his position and to resume a comfortable life. There was a great deal of goods held in philadelphia that the british had not removed or destroyed because of congress has banned much of it was still being held in warehouses. Some enterprising philadelphia merchants had purchased luxury items at pennies on the dollar from desperate residents or from british soldiers. Who looted them. And we're leaving town arlt made some. Shall we say questionable deals by granting a pass to one ship whose owner had agreed to sell him thousands of pounds worth of goods at bargain prices. Arnold also cut deals with a number of tories to sell certain goods that were not needed by the army. But were in danger of seizure by pennsylvania officials again arnold bot these goods at pennies on the dollar since batori. Merchants had to do that or else lose everything to public seizure. Once arnold onum the goods were no longer torrione and could not be seized by the state later some of these goods and up it little egg harbor. In new jersey. Arnold had received advance word of the plan. British raid there and send a train of teamsters using government wagons to bring back to philadelphia many of the personal items that he had purchased before the british could.

"Cosmo gordon a british regular woke up in philadelphia. After a night of heavy drinking. He quickly discovered that the city had been completely abandoned is unit along with the rest of the army was marching away in new jersey. The final british ships in the river had already set sail and were away from port. The product officer quickly grabbed his things and rush down to the port there. He found a friendly boatman who he paid to take him across the river. As far as we know. Gordon was the last officer to leave philadelphia around eleven. Am admiral how who was already aboard his flagship. The eagle in the middle of the delaware river weighed anchor and sailed away that same morning. A militia scout aimed george roberts out valley forge to report that the british had abandoned philadelphia about the same time. That colonel gordon was making his escape across the delaware river to new jersey. Washington received roberts's report another group of delaware militia on horseback had entered the city that morning and had captured about thirty enemy soldiers. Who had not left in time. Washington dispatched major general benedict arnold with a brigade of about four hundred soldiers to take control of the city. Arnold you may recall was still recovering from his leg wound at saratoga when he turned up at valley forge about a month earlier. Ready to return to duty. Still not really ready. For combat washington designated arnold to serve as the military commander of philadelphia following the british evacuation. Riding with arnold into philadelphia was washington's aide to camp colonel. Tench tilghman who had been a philadelphia before the war as well as washington's former aide to camp joseph reed who had been a philadelphia lawyer before the war at that time read was a delegate to the continental congress continental general henry knox and philadelphia militia. General john cadwalader also road with the first occupying force to enter the city. The comments of everyone who was that it was a complete and utter mess piles of garbage lay everywhere in the streets in public buildings in private homes occupying troops and others had used houses public buildings and even independence hall as a place to relieve themselves. The smell of human feces and urine was everywhere. Some occupying soldiers had he been taken the winter to fill entire basements with their own human waste. Many churches had their gravestones knocked down. So that churchyards could be turned into horse riding areas. Church pews at a great deal. Other furniture had been used for firewood. Almost no wooden fences had survived the occupation. In some cases entire houses had been dismantled and burned for firewood. Even some of the better houses have been looted. Major john who had occupied. Benjamin franklin's house left with a full length portrait of the founder and also with his music and scientific equipment and most of his library. Andre blamed franklin for bringing france into the war and forgetting general how recalled he defended his looting as a form of payback against his enemy. As i said the damage to the city overall was severe and it would take months to clean up and repair to make philadelphia functional again aside from assuming former control of philadelphia. The purpose sending arnold and other key officers was to take control of any supplies that the british had left behind that the continental army needed the following day. Arnold issued proclamations of martial law and ordered all citizens to provide an inventory of any items held in the city. The continental congress still out in york had passed resolutions ordering the army to put up an embargo on all trade and secure all valuables within.

"How you can Manipulate and change like muddle through frequency and vibration in magnetic fields. Super interesting stuff. There's gonna youtube that claims that he can make a steel levitated through frequency and vibration and that he can. He can create an anti gravity fields. And he's he's been investigated. A lotta people say is a hoax. I would think if that was true the government would be all over him and wanna talk to him unless they ve already done it twenty years ago and maybe not quite the right path or seventy years ago or seventy years ago you gotta think if they if they actually did that seventy plus years ago what what are they doing now writing and why do we need space for us. There's so many things that tie into this. Like i think dimensional we open gates long long ago that we can come and go through but david copperfield does this every day. It's like second nature to him. He's not that cold dude. I don't think anyway. I was on stage with that guy. It was pretty awesome copperfield over trade on an we saw. What was that guy. We saw in vegas angel. Chris angel angel. I thought he was pretty good. I thought it was good to go gas. Tv show was kinda stupid. you know that. Charlie's angels or chris angels. Charlie's angels maven a stupid tv show but it was pretty hot to watch. You gotta give them that it's true what kidneys regional. What kid in. The seventies didn't just drool all over faira fawcett and jaclyn smith edibles verify in action. How i was totally on jacqueline. She's gorgeous yeah shaneco just willa. Well okay you know. Everybody's got their time. Sure tesla ostensibly back in what like the late. Eighteen hundreds early nineteen hundreds would would do these little la. Traveling road shows trying to show people that He was smart and that He was worthy of being invested in and he would play with electricity and and frequencies one of the things that he reportedly would do. Was he turn his oscillating machines on and Carry like a piece of rebar in his hand and while he was holding it just in his hand steady the oscillating machine was set to whatever the resonant frequency of of iron was and slowly after about two minutes. The bar the piece of rebar which start to kind of wobble and vibrate until it got almost like it was a piece of rope and then it would snap into and fall to the ground and so this was like in front of you know hundreds of people he did this. This was witnessed by a lot of people and he he Had this awesome later machine and put it in his apartment in his new york apartment and set it to various frequencies and just make no sense of what happened when it was at certain frequencies and so he would watch you know at certain frequency. The chair might start bouncing around the room and another frequency You know the the toaster might start bouncing around or whatever so he was just kinda like okay. This is kind of interesting and you take notes and and what have you will. one time. he He had it on and I guess in his new york apartment you know in the older apartments they have these The support beams. That would kind of go through the middle. You're you're rumor. Whatever and then much do with architecture now because it's invasive back then you'd would see these support beams maybe in the right in the middle of your living room and apparently he had his machine right up next to one of the support. Beams that went down directly into the earth and while he was experimenting with these resonant frequencies apparently He caused an earthquake that was felt seven blocks away and they were trying to figure out what this was. It wasn't a normal earthquake and somebody was like damn tesla and so they sent the cops after him and and he finally realized that what was causing. This earthquake was him and so he's like. Oh my god. What do i do what i do. He took a sledgehammer and destroyed his oscillating machine right before the cops got their hand and knocked on the door and he's like oh yes. Sorry guys Good good to see ya. And now you've just missed a my experiment today but come on back tomorrow and all have another one for you have a nice day in so if a guy could do something like that and he claims that he can he can make ship disappear. Can't maybe can't and what's interesting to me as you think about the things that tie into that well if if back then they could come up with a resonant frequency to make something gigantic like that disappear. What what could you do. If you had the knowledge and some supercomputers and you could calculate the resonant frequency for anything a duck about a person a whatever you could you could send them wherever you wanted to send it. Goes both ways. I mean you. Could you could postulate on and really Daydream about it. And there's all kinds of amazing things That you can think of. But it's hard to find anybody corroborate it. The the there was a reunion of navy vets who sailed aboard the eldredge in ninety nine hundred ninety nine. They all claim that the ship had never made port in philadelphia. The whole time they run it and a lot of these guys were serving Further evidence shows that the log of the uss eldredge put them far far away from from philadelphia on the date in question or anywhere near the dating question. And it's it's all available on microfilm. Now that's easy enough to fake of course but you get all those old guys together talking. You think somebody might be looking. I might have. I might have been there. But all of them say they weren't now that doesn't mean The the navy's not capable of putting a different name on a different ship and and doing experiments with it should they are but but the real uss eldredge. Those guys say that they weren't there so fair enough. The navy claims that they were doing a lot of experiments back then in nineteen forty-three and they were trying to map the seafloor which sounds like absolute bullshit.

"Had actually gone crazy from it. Which which would make sense it. Would it would make sense if you underwent something like that and and the things that reportedly happened actually did happen. Like if you're on a ship ship disappeared. You ended up two hundred miles away and when you ended up back where you were. You saw some of your crew mates With their torso fused into team. Would that not mess with your mind. I mean it probably would but some of these guys some pretty serious combat in the pacific some guests been around a long time and it might mess with your mind or the the the experiment might just like drive people. Mad the rearrange brain. Who knows i was just gonna say maybe maybe that did. Have you know with the thing. We've talked about a few weeks ago. Where In kennedy's administration the guy basically was trying to rat out the bad guys and so they throw them in an insane asylum ryan. They said yeah. Nobody's gonna listen to you here. You're crazy like everybody else. And so maybe that's how you keep a bunch of people quiet. Is you either threaten them with. Hey you saw what happened to frank over here You want it to happen to you and your family than talk or you know throwing insane asylum and then if they do talk who listens nobody. It's interesting that the story's been told and retold over and over again it. It got real legs in nineteen seventy nine Charles berlitz wrote a book He had written a book about The bermuda triangle and then he published a book The philadelphia experiment project in disability. Which was supposed to be a factual account of everything that happened. Arctic robbery those things But there's been many times authors have retold the story you know the other thing that strikes me as and it doesn't seem to be without any merit at all if you had a bunch of people on board a ship and something like that happened. I would think that most of those guys would probably end up with really cushy jobs Military in you know in. We're gonna we're gonna re up your your top secret clearance and we're gonna put you on some cool projects we're gonna pay you fat salary and you're gonna sign this nondisclosure. Keep your mouth shut will let you know when we're done with you kind of thing. I think a lotta people go that route. In fact i know personally several route so so there's that and then every once in a while you get somebody that kinda goes off the ranch. Maybe they end up in an insane asylum or disappeared I think it's a lot easier to just be like you know stalin's no dummy noman no problem right and they would just disappear. Them and accidents happen. Maybe the brakes on your car. Whatever you know it's not. I don't think it's beyond our government to do something like that and i certainly don't think gets technologically beyond our government. I think they have a lot more tricks up their sleeves than they than they will ever let on. That will know you until it had twenty or thirty year old technology. And i you know it goes along with. I've always said. I think a lot of the things we see that are that are people think are space. Aliens are in my opinion dimensional beings the travel from from different dimensions into this one. And i think it might be possible that they had started to open that door and really once they did that. Experiment try to become radar invisible. Maybe they realized what they have and they decided to scale down. Put it someplace dark and work on it in private instead of on the open. Seas with one hundred sailors definitely intrigued by by the philadelphia experiment. Because because tesla and he he had ostensibly just like a year or two before. This happened before supposedly happened. He had come up with I think unified field theories when it's called that's exactly what it's called and And he he basically said you can make it happen. I can make a ship disappear and again. According to the rumored story that i heard which have no corroborating evidence for is that he said but but there can be no people on board. Do not try to do this with people on board and because the vibration vibrational frequencies of metal very different than the vibrational frequencies of human and he said if you try this it will be disastrous. And then tesla met with an early death and then. The government seized his his records. And somebody ostensibly who had knowledge of tesla in his work came in and said. But i can do it. I can do it and this is where this is where the disaster occurred. Because he said yeah. I believe that it can happen and it could happen. But then they didn't do what tesla said to avoid and that was met with disaster. Now again no corroborating evidence on any of this other than just You know reports from reports and But it makes sense. It doesn't surprise me. I wouldn't be surprised that all to find out the that had actually happened. And and as we all know tusla man he is a next level genius you know. Right is his grasp of things as far beyond nearly everyone except maybe albert einstein. Some will tesla tesla thought. Einstein was an idiot does a different version of the story. The proposes researchers were preparing a magnetic and gravitational measurements of the seafloor to detect anomalies supposedly based on einstein's attempts to understand gravity in in that version There's also a secret experiments in nazi germany to finance gravity. A bunch of different things interrelate with with the the whole tale of the philadelphia experiment. But but it all kinda kinda falls back on really on tusla's the unified field theory..

"Also wanna thank michael levy for joining the privy council level and for longtime supporter arab wigan. Who raised his contribution from standard-bearer to privy council. Also thanks to todd flurry and eric. Pfeiffer who joined at the standard bearer level everyone at the standard bearer level or higher receives a magnet month with a different flag from the american revolution. It's just my small way of saying. Thanks for supporting this podcast. this week. I tried to give an overview of how the british spent the winter in philadelphia while the americans were in valley forge. General william how found himself almost surrounded in the city by hostile forces with the only relatively secure path to the outside world being the delaware river any even that was not secured for the first few months as i said in hindsight the capture philadelphia has been seen as a failure not just because it resulted in the abandonment of burgoyne army at saratoga but also because of the failure to recruit a loyalist army for many years the british political and military leaders listen to stories from loyal colonists who told them about the thousands of loyal subjects. Who had rallied to the king's banner if the army would just come forth and call them this story. I played out in new england before the war began or they said just bringing the army and the loyalists would rally against these mobs and protesters. Well that didn't happen. General burgoyne was told that loyalists in upstate. New york would rally to his army when his men marched into new york. That did not happen. General again heard from locals that loyalists around philadelphia would certainly rally to the army and that did not happen either. In future years leaders would again be told that at least they could count on loyalist to rally in this southern colonies if the army went there. And you'll probably know how that turned out as well. But we'll find out in future episodes but in and around philadelphia general. How made great efforts to go easy on locals in order to win support. Their greatest support in the area came from quaker's who believed as a matter of faith that they had a religious duty to obey lawful authorities even among the quakers many left their meetings to join the patriot cause and of those who did remain loyal. Another tenant of their religion was pacifism meeting. They could not take up arms. In defense of the king so there was no loyalist rising they could pacify the region once. The army moved on as a result. The occupation of philadelphia could never really be a success. The british did suffer from shortages in the city. Although as i said nowhere near as bad as the continentals were out.

"Today there are only few memorial stones that serve as a reminder to the thousands of soldiers buried in mass graves beneath that park. Perhaps one reason the death rate was not hire was that a number of civilians took an active effort to bring food and supplies to the prison. There is an contemporary newspaper. Article of a person identified only as a quote free negro woman who used to her hard earned dollars as a laundries to buy ingredients to make a pot of broth and buy some bread which she distributed to the prisoners. Another woman whose name we actually know was elizabeth cream ferguson. Who was married to a british officer. She also led efforts to provide for the prisoners. Ferguson was a philadelphia native and she remained in the city after the british army left. When the americans recaptured philadelphia ferguson would face charges of treason and would have her property confiscated however numerous witnesses that attested to her support of the prisoners allowed her to recover her confiscated property eventually another reason. That more prisoners did not die. Was that. The americans had agents on hand for the prisoners in philadelphia. Almost right away. Thomas franklin quaker and no relation to benjamin served as ineffective advocate for the prisoners during the british occupation. A final explanation for why more did not die in philadelphia was that the british were only in the city for less than a year sadly for the prisoners. Most of them were shipped to new york when the british land only to die in new york prisons or prison ships. As i said many captured officers were held prisoner in state house. What we today call independence hall. Although conditions there were perhaps a little better than in jail men there were still crowded. Left underfed and without basic needs the british. Also use the hall for wounded americans who were left there with minimum medical treatment. The british were reluctant to grant parole to most captured officers. Because they were so close to american lines. Escape was a great temptation at one point. The army had to hire women to search females leaving the city. It seems that some americans were attempting to escape from philadelphia. Dressed in women's clothes guards were given orders to shoot to kill anyone attempting to escape. A one officer was released after a local quaker. John roberts put up a one hundred pound bond to guarantee his good behavior. When that officer fled the city. Roberts was forced to pay that bond. After the british left. The city roberts was unable to recover his money because the radicals had him executed for treason. The british would remain in philadelphia until june. Seventeen seventy eight. And i'll discuss that departure in a future. Next week though i wanna talk about a group of loyalist outlaws known as the doan gang and also a skirmish with the philadelphia militia. It took place in may known as the battle of crooked billet..

"The british initially left the bulk of the army in and around germantown where most of the soldiers slept intense general. How personally made his first headquarters at the home of james logan. This was about a mile south of germantown several weeks. After the battle of germantown the british pulled back so that almost all of the army was in or near the philadelphia city limits general. How took up residence within the city as well even after the failed continental effort to capture jerry town american attacks on the british lines continued. The americans would often send in small forces at night. These men would get within range of british camp then fire on them around dawn. The attackers would then retreat. Before the british could deploy a detachment to capture them The purpose of these attacks were not to gain any ground it was simply to harass the british and hessian soldiers and keep them nervous on edge washington encamped his army. I at white marsh only a few miles from germantown. He remained there until december beating. The british could never really let their guard down. The main continental army was only a few hours march away. Once the continentals pulled back to valley forge there was a little more relief. However the continentals and militia still sent raids on occasion just to keep the pickets on edge with the city secured militarily the next important issue was housing house regulars and hessian total about fifteen thousand men there were also a few thousand more camp followers women and children who were families of the soldiers even so over twenty five thousand people had fled the city before the british had entered so overcrowding was not the problem at least not like it had been new york city when the british occupied that town a year earlier most homes however remained occupied while many of the men had left to fight with the continental army many of their wives and children remained behind about three fourths of the civilian population in philadelphia or women and children. Housing soldiers among the civilian population was always a delicate issue. Officers took the best houses downtown. The families who live there would be relegated to a few rooms in the house. Well an officer and his staff made use of the most of it. Most officers were relatively polite and paid rent to the owner. The benefit of having an officer also meant that the soldiers were less likely to vandalize or rob the house even so many residents took in these borders reluctantly and without having much choice in the matter. Initially most soldiers stayed in tents or huts that they constructed however the occupation moved into the winter months. Most enlisted soldiers were moved into houses primarily those vacated by patriot families who had fled the city units were billeted together so that officers could keep tabs on their men and form up the companies and regiments quickly if needed..

"Hello thank you for joining the american revolution today. Episode one eighty two occupied philadelphia. As i mentioned back in episode one sixty general house. British army entered philadelphia on september. Twenty sixth seventeen seventy seven a prior to the occupation philadelphia had been not only the seat of the continental congress. It was also the largest city in british north america. It had a population of about forty thousand compared to twenty five thousand for new york city and fifteen thousand four boston general had hoped that its capture would finally bring the rebels to their senses or at least win him. Some praise back in london in the end. The capture accomplished not much of anything beyond being a career. Ender for the british commander of north america. The army found itself surrounded by hostile enemy with a great deal of difficulty keeping its own army properly supplied. Benjamin franklin's comment about philadelphia having captured general. How must've run. True for many british leader's having occupied the city. The british began setting up defenses. The burnish had slipped past the continental army to enter the city without having a major battle after brandy. Wine the continentals. However we're still in the field. An attack on the city was not out of the question. Captain mantra sewer house. Engineer took responsibility for the defenses. He proposed building a series of ten redoubts along a line. North of the city connected by defensive lines which stretched from the delaware river on the east to the schuylkill river on the west hatred. Out sat along a road that lead into the city modulus or later added two additional redoubts. Just north of the main defensive line to serve as outposts which could alert the main body in the event of an attack watchers surveyed. The proposed defensive line with general cornwallis who gave final approval. The next problem was actually building. These defenses the soldiers had to be ready for combat so the work fell on the civilian population. The call for laborers led to almost no volunteers. Most of the city's remaining population was quaker. Which had religious prescriptions against working on military projects beyond that the work was hard and the pay was terrible. General cornwallis had to threaten to conscripts locals before he could finally get about two hundred men to work on the project that was about half of the amount that they wanted as a result. The construction took many weeks before any of the defenses. Were even close to ready for garrison. Further slowing the project was that captain madrazo was also tasked with to open up the delaware river for weeks after the british occupation. The americans still held the forts below philadelphia. This prevented the british navy from reaching the city. How could not bring any supplies up the river until the british took control so in addition to defending against a land attack from the north the british still had to assist the navy to the south in removing the forts along the delaware..
