This one is not as animated as other recent ones and is more narration and quick facts. We thought it is interesting enough on it's own to stray back to the earlier format. With info on Wheat Sheaf, Trembley, Upper Rahway, and Greater Elizabethtown. Join us next time for the Clark Family!

Military March #1 is a classic Schubert composition you must hear before the end of The "Pit' highlight of Franz Schubert. This is arranged by P. Beiner as part of a classical compilation.

Fair use as this is part of an educational set of programming on the pit

Just a funny little trailer for the channel

Our second cross over The "Pit" TTACL Gagmix video. This time MDMG is up. Really I'm just playing with software for animation and audio mix. We will do a few more.

This Colonial Linden Extra has to do with the sacking of nearby township Westfield, New Jersey after the Battle of Short Hills. It was an astounding plunder by British forces burning homes of staunch patriots like Ephriam Marsh even looting the town Bell!
I hope everyone is enjoying our attempt to continue informing the area and the world of the colonial/revolutionary history of these parts. Work on the full length Documentary is in the works with most of the writing finished (although it seems we gain more info to add everyday)
I would like to thank all of the supporters and contributors to the Project.

Circa 2000. This is a great song from NYC Punk Rockers The Shipwrecks remixed for a TTACL/The "Pit" hybrid video. All in fun! In Jersey the Revolution was very much a Civil War and listening to the Shipwrecks I got the idea for a fun Video using clips from our Truth About Colonial Linden Revolutionary Videos. Hope you enjoy!

"Old Mash" and his lineage played a large roll in the founding, development, and success of the Great State of New Jersey. Samuel Marsh and his wife Comfort (Mann) settled land along the Rahway River in the area of Linden known as Tremley Point (Trembley Pointe) This is a short video, however, not from lack of importance or history of this major family. This family is quite large and progeny rested there heads all over the state and beyond. Still the main concentration stemming from colonial times was essex (including union) and middlesex counties in New Jersey.
We will be having much more on the Marsh Family as they are very much married into many of our other highlighted families. This video is in the older format based on trying to focus on colonial ares now Linden and Roselle. Yet, we have shared content from Rahway. The village founded by John Marsh. Also most of Linden after 1803 or 4 was incorporated into the Township of Rahway. We will at a future date do our mid sized format 1 or 2 episodes on the Greater Marsh Kin. We just recently got in contact after I found some research from the family. Like the Winans there is a lot of great history to preserve with this family. Hope you all like our quick update and stay tuned for the Clark family next in the cue!

This video is for educational purposes and is non profit. This is part of a month long highlight of Franz Schubert. We claim fair use.

Thanks for joining us for Part two of our The Truth About Colonial Linden Update "The Winans, The Patriots". This family has a lot to be proud as do the People of Linden, Elizabeth, Rahway and Roselle today. We are in the process of fine tuning some of our production but alas not without hiccups. We use the simplest software at this time as we are searching for funding for the full length documentary. The Truth About Colonial Linden full length will not be as in depth in terms of individuals but more of a long form general history of the Colonial period in the Linden and Roselle parts of the Elizabethtown tract. Though we are doing quite a good job of including some of the rich stories and colorful characters along with those facts in the script.

I would give more of an introduction here normally but I believe the video flows well and you will be quite satisfied acquiring knowledge about the Winans patriots. Also, for returning viewers, you know I always leave a bibliography of cited works and research. However, this time they are all in the credits. Trying that out. Let me know how you liked the piece and if you haven't already like and subscribe. This way you will always know when a new video comes out.

We will be licensing music and images as well as employing a professional narrator for the documentary. The film will also feature actors as well as a host. A little different than our updates. This will all depend on funding. We are writing a grant proposal now but if you would like to contribute every bit helps. You will receive credit in the film as a patron, receive a link to a pre-screening on Youtube and for 25 dollars or more request research notes for your own digging. You can donate to our gofundme or subscribe to s&m productions on SubscriberStar.

Are next family update will either be on the Clarks' or the Marsh family. We will start those in a few weeks and have them out in a month or two. So keep an eye out for them! The reason not sooner is directly a result of working towards getting a grant to be able to upgrade software, add some hardware, upgrade our audio equipment, license music, images and pay for some talent. I will be putting out the normal bi-monthly update on the project. Thanks for your interest!

Just a quick update. The Winans family video will be released next Saturday. The video is about the Founders of the Winans family Jan (john) and Sussanah as well as 5 of their progeny, 2 grandsons and 3 great grandsons who were patriots during the revolution.

The "Pit" Presents this short synopsis of life Franz Schubert as part of our Jan-Feb 2019 highlight of his work. This is the first documentary installment for 2019. This is a new format which is much shorter and this does not cover his life in-depth. Not to worry as we will continue to look into his life releasing more information and education on Franz Peter Schubert in the music videos you are used to seeing in companion with each highlighted artist. We will be telling his story through his music with loads of info on each piece, info on the performers in those recordings and highlights from his personnel life during the time the compositions were written. Thanks for joining us and look out for the next Schubert video!

This is a fair use of Franz Schubert's "Ave Maria" the original German title " Ellens Gesang" performed by Andre' Rieu and The Johann Strauss Orchestra Feat. Mirusia Louwerse as part of this months highlighted artist Schubert intended to educate on the life and music of Franz Peter Schubert. This is a beautiful version that will help the viewers this month understand Schubert's command of melody and his style of creating harmonies derived from the base melody. Credits in the video including brief descriptions of the soloist Louwerse and Conductor Rieu. Also included in the video and Britannica entry with citation from Betsy Schwarm. This video is in companion to the short documentary of Schubert's life that will be released 1/17/2019 on The "Pit" We would like to thank Andre' Rieu for allowing fair use for nonprofit educational purposes and believe this is continuance with his mission of spreading this music to the people.


Murisia Louwerse represents the Australian Children's Music Foundation:

This Truth About Colonial Linden Extra documents The 2nd Battle of Spanktown (3rd engagement at Spanktown) February 23, 1777 during the part of the Jersey Campaign known as the Forage War. Spanktown is Rahway, N.J Lindens neighboring town. During the colonial period the whole area was part of Elizabethtown (Elizabeth, N.J) and much of what is now Linden became part of Rahway in the early 1800's before incorporating into it's own township in the mid 1800's. Troops from Elizabethtown's Wheat Sheaf neighborhood (part of Roselle and Linden), and the Rahway neighborhood (some of which is now part of Linden) were involved in the battle. This was a neat bit of History we decided to share as we continue to learn new software and search for that voice to help bring the main documentary project to completion. Sources varied but we believe we did the history justice. This was certainly a planned trap by Maxwell and the colonials while being another example of British professionalism and cool under fire leadership of Lt. Colonel Mawhood.

An oldie but goodie from Knighthawk. Highlighted artist Ant Tempalsky was in this group. Low quality recording but great tune.

The skirmish between The HMS George and rebels of 3-4 hour old United States happened around midnight from July 4th to July 5th 1776 and was most likely the first military action of the United States of America. A fleet from Halifax pressed down into New York Harbor Landing troops set up base on Staten Island.

We discuss in short three accounts and I give my thoughts on the most likely events of the nations first fireworks! Capturing the George and relieving it of it's cannon for the defense of Elizabethtown, ergo the American Continent! Enjoy

In this sit down G and Phill discuss illegal migration, citizensborn from illegal migration and the impact on the average American that lives and works with many of the new population. They discuss the differences between people that immigrate legally and those who migrate. The effect on the job market and qualifications is spoke on as well as questions on how to repair the divide. In the comments please add your perspectives, solutions and questions

This is another brief installation for The Truth About Colonial Linden about Linden originals the Morse Family.
Peter Morse the patriarch of the Morse family was an original associate of the Elizabethtown charter making him a founder of New Jersey. The Morse roots run deep in Linden as the creek that runs through under and around our streets bears their name. This tid bit give info on the family with emphasis on two of Peter's great grandsons whom were noted patriots.
