Revolutionary War Memorial/Cemetery, Washington Crossing State Park
Philadelphia

In December, 1776, the nearby Thompson-Neely House became a temporary military hospital for General Washingtons soldiers that were suffering from disease, exposure, unhealed wounds, etc. The soldiers that died during this time were buried throughout the area. In 1954 the Soldiers Graves and Memorial Flagstaff in Washington Crossing State Park was dedicated to the many men lost during that time. The modern gravestones are named Unknown, except for one, Captain-Lieutenant James Moore.  The Memorial Flagstaff base is made up of native stone from the original 13 colonies, with each state named. Situated on a rise along the Delaware River, it is a beautiful tribute to those men of the Continental Army.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
