Writing a non-fiction history book isn't easy. There's no "let's say this or put this character here" in a non-fiction, and the stories and anecdotes not only have to be intersting, but cited and correct. Without the help of other historians, past and present, and the museums and libraries that house the books and accounts that have been written, this book could not have been completed. I have much respect and admiration for those who have spent their lives writing about the past and those who spend their lives now protecting and keeping the past safe for the rest of us.

(Any student of history--especially Bucks County history--should visit the Langhorne Historic Association [located in the old Langhorne Library], Newtown Library, Newtown Historical Society, Spruance Library,
David Library of the American Revolution, Pennsbury Manor, Historic Fallsington, New Hope Historical Society, and Washington Crossing Historic Park. Additionally, all of these organizations are truly deserving of donations and volunteer hours...after all, they keep history alive for all of us.)
