UNDER CONSTRUCTION - Pardon Our Mess
2/13/18. I am pulling together internet site connections, historical pictures, maps and drawings to give you a sense of the world into which I have placed the Pulaskis. More connections and information will be coming soon.
The Pulaski History:
Ben is born the first moment of 1800. His experiences, and those of Sonja (born 1805), reflect the major moments of the 1800's, as well as the life styles and challenges of everyday people living then. Ben is the renegade son of a Baltimore ship captain, and grandson of a Polish immigrant. Ben rarely attended school and cannot read. Sonja is the daughter of a successful North Carolina farmer and the granddaughter of a German immigrant who settled in Catawba County. Ben and Sonja live in Havre de Grace, Maryland. They have two sons, Isaac, born in 1825, and Aaron, born in 1827. Ben left home during the depression that began in 1837, signing onto a sailing ship bound for the Orient. A daughter, Alisha, was born to Sonja in 1839, but was torn from her arms during the ice gorge and flood that year, when the Pulaski home was swept away. In mourning, Sonja was informed that Ben was lost at sea. The loss of Alisha and then Ben shatters Sonja's spirit, who thought herself a destitute widow until Ben's return in 1841 ("Pulaski's Canal").
Maryland is a slave state. Both Ben and Sonja grew up around that peculiar institution. The Pulaski Saga follows them, as they awaken to the moral issues of slavery and are drawn into individual acts that become a commitment.
