Probably because when his parents brought the family here, they settled in Cleveland and that is where he grew up.

We would be right where we are, a free country. The first permanent English settlement has been at Jamestown, VA since 1607. Patrick Henry did a bit of rabble rousing himself. He's the guy who said "give me liberty, or give me death". Then there was this other VA guy. Thomas something-or-other... I dunno, he wrote some famous thingy. BTW, wasn't Samuel Adams the guy who brought the beer?

And I see that now this thread about visiting states is becoming a history lesson about states. It's all good. History is a cool thing.

I want to thank the both of you for the fight you put out, for us, the younger generations that were not there.

It could very well be. Beer making was one of his failed enterprises. He was a lousy businessman. It is his recipe for beer making that the present company found and is using. The name of the company today is The Boston Beer Company. Samuel Adams is the name of the original beer the company first produced.

Once the British looked up at Dorchester Heights and saw the cannons steering down on them, did they finally give up the fight to hold Boston. (March 17th Evacuation Day) Access to Boston was denied for a whole year. The citizens of Boston refused to give in and many families went hungry as food from outside of the city was denied entrance. The blockade of Boston had been broken. Some of your Bill of Rights are a result of that year. Your right to bear arms. The citizens of Boston were not allowed to have arms in their home. The fact that you cannot be forced to house the military in your home. Freedom of Religion. Only churches of the King were allowed to hold services. So many indignaties were suffered by the citizens of Boston during that year of the blockade.

There is a church in Boston called King's Chapel. The steeple has never been finished. When the war broke out, all work stopped on it. And it was never started up again. To this day it is an Episcopalian. And so BTW is the Old North Church.

Nope.

From Wikipedia:
The Samuel Adams brand began with Samuel Adams Boston Lager. The original recipe was developed in 1860 in St. Louis, Missouri by Louis Koch, who sold under the name Louis Koch Lager until Prohibition, and again until the early 1950s.
According to company founder, Jim Koch (who's from Ohio, by the way, and not Boston), "I wanted an assertively American name, and Samuel Adams was a brewer, a patriot, and a revolutionary, so we named the beer after him."

But I'm not sure what any of this, or stories of King's Chapel (Also incorrect. According to iboston.org, the steeple was never added because they ran out of funds. And the church itself was finished 20 years before the war) has to do with the original topic.

What, we stray OT Steve? How did we do that? Besides, maybe I started this thread to see how widely travelled a group we are but I am thoroughly enjoying out banter here.

OK guys, Steve wants us to shape up. Maybe next time history comes up we should just start another Back Porch thread.

Oh, I have nothing at all against history. History is one of my favorite topics. But I also prefer it when it's factual, rather than pulled out of one's... um... hat.

Ok. I'll lighten up.
