Ray Raphael, Renowned Historian's endorsement

Ray Raphael, Renowned Revolutionary War Author of 'A Peoples' Guide to the American Revolution' Concerning research about Chapman Falls, Devil's Hopyard State Park, East Haddam, CT. verified by Peter Oliver's 1781 Origin and Progress story of Beebe's attack by the Sons Of Liberty Mob in 1775, and it's link to the gristmill ruins and it's millstone found in Chapman Falls at Devil's Hopyard State Park, CT Lou, Wow! You've gone far deeper into this than I did. Here are my thoughts: First, you don't have to have absolute certainty in this arena. We use physical artifacts as a means of telling significant tales, and that can certainly be done in this case. So I wish you the best of luck in your efforts. But I don't think you need this as an "independent source" for your purposes. Again, you've got a juicy piece of material history there, and in my mind reasonable linking to tell a big story. Best of luck Ray From: "Ray Raphael contactray@rayraphael.com> Date: Sun, June 1, 2008 To: lou@lousorrentino.com
