Thomas Sully, “Passage of the Delaware,” 1819 (oil on canvas), Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Click on the photograph to reach the Museum website. The painting was a “Gift of the Owners of the old Boston Museum.”
One of my ancestors, Irishman John Honeyman, helped make the crossing of the Delaware possible (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Honeyman). I joined the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution in 2010, after having formally demonstrated my relationship. I am now working with a professional genealogist to prove seven more American Revolutionary War ancestors.
Celebrating the Fourth of July 2012 ~ best wishes to all!
