The papers of Sir Andrew Snape Hamond, bart. (1738-1828), a British naval captain during the Revolution, and those of his son, Sir Graham Eden Hamond, bart. (1779-1862). The elder Hamond's papers consist mainly of official records relating to his very active and influential naval career and to his brief political assignment as Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia, Commissioner of the Navy, and Commander-in-Chief in Halifax, 1781-1782. Highlights of his wartime career include his service in the coastal rivers of Pennsylvania and Virginia where he mastered the art of river warfare, and his role in the invasion of Charleston, 1780. The personal material, although limited, is of special significance. The personal correspondence (1766-1778) of Hamond with Hans Sloane and Hans Stanley gives the views of three Englishmen to the approaching separation of the colonies from England. Also of importance are Hamond's excellent narrative account, written from 1783 to 1785, of his role in the Revolution during the years, 1775-1777, and his autobiography which covers his career to 1794. Principal correspondents include: Marriot Arbuthnot, Robert Digby, John Murray, Earl of Dunmore, Lord George [Sackville] Germain, Lord Thomas Graves, William Hotham, Lord Richard Howe, John Montague, Peter Parker, Molyneux Shuldham, Philip Stephens, and William Tryon. Available on department microfilm (M-1722-1724). (McGregor Library, #680, etc.)
Contains several letters of Elizabeth Pinckney and her son Thomas, a Revolutionary War general from South Carolina, mainly about personal affairs. (#6019)
In the late 1930s, David Ben-Gurion wrote: "What is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times; and if at this time the opportunity is missed and what is possible in such great hours is not carried out a whole world is lost." The "revolutionary times" would come with the first Arab-Israeli war in 1948, when the Zionists were able to expel 750,000 Palestinians (more than 80 percent of the indigenous population), and thus achieve an overwhelmingly Jewish state, though its area did not include the entirety of Palestine, or the "Land of Israel," which Zionist leaders thought necessary for a viable state.The opportunity to grab additional land occurred as a result of the 1967 war; however, that occupation brought with it the problem of a large Palestinian population.
