In 1787, Delaware became the first state to ratify the US Constitution In 1808, James Madison was elected as the fourth President of the United States. In 1836, Martin Van Buren was elected as the 8th US president. In 1862, during the Civil War, the Battle of Hartsville, Tenn., and the Battle of Prairie Grove, Ark., began. In 1868, Jessie James and his gang robbed a bank in Gallatin, Mo., and one person was killed. In 1872, the British warship HMS Challenger began a 3-1/2 year round-the-world oceanographic cruise. In 1917, during World War I, the US became the 13th nation to declare war on Austria. In 1932, the first gyro-stabilized vessel arrived in New York Harbor after crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

November 21, 2014 is the 50th Anniversary of the Opening of the Verrazano Bridge Anti-Italian Bigotry and Prejudice in Brooklyn In 1909 my grandfather and the other Italian immigrants experienced the anti-Italian bigotry and prejudice that was prevalent at that time especially during the Hudson-Fulton Celebration in New York City. The Italians protested passionately the exclusion of the Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano from the exposition. In 1524 Verrazzano was commissioned by the French king, Francis I, to find a passage-way to Asia. He sailed westward, landing in the vicinity of present day North Carolina and then sailed north into the present day Hudson River on his ship La Dauphine. His explorations gave France its claim to the lands in North America. The English explorer, Henry Hudson, didn’t sail into New York Harbor until 1609. Apparently history chose to ignore Verrazzano’s voyage, his explorations, and his discovery of the Hudson River and New York Harbor, and instead credited the dis ...

“Why Veterans are Important to our History and Future” Illinois Sarah Morthland As a storm rolls into New York Harbor, I am reminded of the countless wars my nation has faced and the sacrifices the veterans have made throughout the history of America. I am The Statue of Liberty created in 1875 and now stand proudly watching over the nation as each of our brave soldiers fights for our freedom. At my feet are loose chains symbolizing the freedom our first soldiers fought for during the Revolutionary War, in my left hand a tablet engraved with the date July 4, 1776, and in my right hand a torch that illuminates the way for all veterans of all wars. Looking down at my green cooper body, I can see the cracks that have formed throughout my years stationed at Liberty Island. With each crack forced into existence, a soldier is placed into the remembrance of my heart, and with each casualty the cracks deepen. Even though a soldier’s sacrifices may be forgotten and the cracks in my body repaired, the mem ...
Everyone is familiar with the Statue of Liberty as a symbol of the promise of America, but for a few years early in its existence, it was also officially a lighthouse. The lighted torch in Lady Liberty’s right hand has great symbolic significance, but at its beginning, it was also used as a navigational aid for ships entering New York Harbor. Nine arc lamps were placed in its torch.The torch could be seen as far as 24 miles away at sea and stood over 305 feet high. The Statue of Liberty became operational as a lighthouse on November 22, 1886. The Lighthouse Board was responsible for the statue. Despite efforts by the Lighthouse Board the torch was still considered too dim and remained virtually invisible in the night sky. In 1901, President Theodore Roosevelt ordered the statue's transfer to the War Department, as it had proved useless as a lighthouse. The Lighthouse was deactivated in 1902. In 1933 the statue was turned over to the National Parks Service.

Did you know, shortly after Greece was invaded by Italy, Greek Americans mobilized and formed numerous support and relief organizations, most notably, the Greek War Relief Association, which raised tens of millions of dollars for the people of Greece. They immediately launched the "Greek Railway Express" which was a coast to coast journey collecting dry goods, clothing and other materials for immediate shipment to the people of Greece via ship. These photos are from the collection of Gregory C Pappas and show Chicago's collection point for clothing, sent to Tripolis; and a Greek Railway Express truck that helped transport the materials across country to New York harbor..

This weekend marks the anniversary of the Battle of Brooklyn. In June 1776, General George Washington moved his troops to New York Harbor, in anticipation of a British attack. Finally, after months of anticipation, British forces landed on Long Island on August 22nd. Five days later, the British attacked American positions at Brooklyn Heights and the Heights of Guan (roughly today’s Prospect Heights). Although vastly outnumbered, the Americans managed to hold of the British, and the remainder of the army retreated to Brooklyn Heights. The August 27th Battle of Brooklyn was the first major battle of the American Revolution fought after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. On the night of August 29-30th, Washington executed a brilliant evacuation plan, moving his entire army to Manhattan without the loss of a single life. The Americans were eventually driven out of New York, and the British maintained control of the harbor throughout the war. Interested in learning more about Brooklyn's ...

Black Tom Explosion (1916) Newspaper article from "The Jersey Journal" announcing the devastating news of the munitions explosion at Black Tom. Now a section of Liberty State Park (along Morris Pesin road including the park office and Flag Plaza), Black Tom was originally a small island in New York Harbor not far from Liberty Island. Between 1860 and 1880, Black Tom was connected to the mainland by a causeway and rail lines terminating at a freight facility with docks. The area between the island and the mainland was filled in sometime between 1905 and 1916 by the Lehigh Valley Railroad as part of its Jersey City facility. By the beginning of the twentieth century, Black Tom was serving as a major munitions depot. Before the United States entered the First World War, American businessmen would sell their supplies to any buyer. However, by 1915, the British Navy had established a blockade effectively keeping the Germans from being able to buy from the American merchants. The German government, on July 30, ...

WHAT A SWEET STORY... (CNN) -- It was about eight months into her fight with heart cancer that 24-year-old Maire Kent knew she was going to die. In November 2012, Kent was diagnosed with cardiac sarcoma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer. By the end of September 2013, she was gone. But it's what happened in the final weeks of her life that made her friends and family feel as if she's still around. "I met her by chance, actually," filmmaker Keith Famie told CNN. "I went to the hospital because I was having some chest pains and we ended up having the same doctor. Our conversations took off from there." Famie happened to be working on a documentary about how people deal with the end of life. So he and Kent decided to document the last leg of her life and her final wishes. Inspired by her favorite children's book, "Paddle to Sea," in which a boy carves a wooden boat and sets it free in the Great Lakes, Kent turned to her family and said, "I want to do that. I want to go to the ocean. Cremate me and put my ...

On July 4, 1776 George Washington was sitting in New York on Manhattan Island in blistering heat staring at 120 British ships that began arriving in New York Harbor on June 29. The British had landed on Staten Island where they found the loyalist very hospitable. Martha Washington had left New York for the safety of Mount Vernon. Five of the 120 ships had more guns than Washington had at his disposal to protect the entire city. The British ships carried over 10,000 men. Washington was told to expect hourly arrival of more ships. By August 4 over 400 ships had arrived carrying another 10-15,000 men. Washington did not find out until July 6 that the Congress had voted for independence from Great Britain. Alexander Hamilton, per the Congress, sent Washington a copy of the declaration on July 8 with instructions to read it to his men. That was done with much joy on July 9. The crowd was so jubilant that they marched to the statue of George III and pulled it down. Those men, and many others like them, spent t ...
Little Giant Ladders
My fellow Americans: In a few moments the celebration will begin here in New York Harbor. It's going to be quite a show. I was just looking over the preparations and thinking about a saying that we had back in Hollywood about never doing a scene with kids or animals because they'd steal the scene every time. So, you can rest assured I wouldn't even think about trying to compete with a fireworks display, especially on the Fourth of July. My remarks tonight will be brief, but it's worth remembering that all the celebration of this day is rooted in history. It's recorded that shortly after the Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia celebrations took place throughout the land, and many of the former Colonists -- they were just starting to call themselves Americans -- set off cannons and marched in fife and drum parades. What a contrast with the sober scene that had taken place a short time earlier in Independence Hall. Fifty-six men came forward to sign the parchment. It was noted at the time ...

Good luck to the amazing athletes who are starting the epic 8 Bridges Hudson River Swim tomorrow from the Catskills to New York Harbor. "The swimmers in the 8 Bridges challenge remind us of the motivation for cleaning up the river along the entire length. Some people express dismay to see anyone swimming in the Hudson River. To them, the river still retains its polluted reputation. They are missing out on the enjoyment of a tremendous natural resource. It helps to have water-lovers championing the cause for a swimmable Hudson to show that the river still belongs to us all, even if we aren’t trying to set any endurance records," writes Patrick Landewe, keeper of the Saugerties Lighthouse.

The 8 Bridges Hudson River Swim, the longest marathon swim in the world, started today. The 8 Bridges is an epic swimming odyssey that celebrates the mighty Hudson and New York Harbor and we're a proud sponsor.
