  • The Young Rebels

    Does anybody recall this TV series:



    Set during the American Revolution in Chester, Pa, “The Young Rebels” followed the adventures of the Yankee Doodle Society, a group of young spies and saboteurs who aided the American fight for Independence. The group consisted of four young people named Jeremy Larkin (Rick Ely), Isak Poole (Lou Gossett, Jr), Henry Abington (Alex Henteloff) and Elizabeth Coates (Hilarie Thompson). The young Frenchman, General Lafayette (Philippe Forquet), supported and sometimes accompanied the agents on their missions.

    Maybe we can get this someday on DVD or?
    Anybody else like this show or idea?

    I used to have the 3 tape VHS set, I got them in the early 80's.
    It was sort of a sanitized version, so made for family viewing audiences.
    I liked "THE CROSSING" Starring Jeff Daniels, a bit more, perhaps it was more made for history loving fans.

      Good call, Konezev!
      I'd still like to see it again though. Say my boy rowed
      down the Delaware River a couple of Summers ago, at the Delaware Water
      Gap. Quite an experience for a 14 year old!

        A truly beautyful picture, and I envy your son.
        I would recomand to you, to visit the polish Karpathian Mountains, and You will find equally beautyful places, plus some awesome Castles, that you wouldn't find in the US.
        It's worth, getting in touch with the Culture of your Ancestors, they are of polish origin, right ?

          That is quite correct. And thanks for that. I will look forward to that visit.
          My cousin plans to visit soon, she has done most of the family history
          research. Her father, Steven died in WWI and was buried in France. It would be great to travel with her. Her dad:


          Stephen (Steve) MIKOLAYEWSKI b 11 Aug 1894, Plymouth, PA WW I 83 Infantry Divison, kia d 17 Sep 1918 France bu Oise-Aisne American Cemetery, Plot D Row 10 Grave 35, Fere-en-Tardenois, France.83 Infantry Divison Pvt. U.S. Army. 1900 Census under name Steve Mickelaski in Plymouth Ward 2, Luzerne, Pennsylvania, Parents: Martin and Lucy. Siblings: Walter, Stella, Sophia, Wanda, and Stanley.

            The Forgotten Ones. (I hope not)

            I grew up in western germany, close to the industrial center of the Ruhr.
            From my childhood on, I started to be very curious about names, and where they originated from. I must have annoyed my parents and teachers with my questions, talking about the topic. So I always wanted to inquire where
            people with names other than what I considered typical german names, originated from. So I found out very quickly, that the Ruhr Valley was populated by a huge number of polish immigrants, so much, that they equalled the number of polish immigrants going to America in the 19th Century.
            If You take a telephone book about Dortmund, Essen, Unna, Gelsenkirchen
            and so on, you will find almost half of the names are polish:
            Grabowski, Rakowski, Dombrowski , Beskow, and so on.
            And here is a tidbid:
            There was a polish General under the Name of Juliuz Rommel leading the polish Wyskow Korps (it could have been Group Pomorze or Pruzy, not quite sure, I read the article in the German DER SPIEGEL magazine quite a while ago) in Battle against the german 4th Army in September 1939. Now this raises the question: Was Erwin Rommel a relative of Juliuz
            Rommel ? And yes, he was a remote relative as DNA testing has been found out.
            The name Rommel originates from a title Baron - Residence Family, that fell into hard times after the 30 years war in Poland.
            There is also a TV miniseires, that I just watched but the very topic:
            http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085080/
            and here on Amazon.de:
