Day two-Chapter 14, Jack Sholl, Patriot, Rower, Gentlemen Unparalleled

A few years ago, Jack was scheduled to be a guest speaker for two Sons of the American Revolution presentations at Independence Hall in Philadelphia.  Even though he was in pain and was taking pain killers, because of his multiple melanoma( cancer of the bone marrow), he still arrived to give his presentations.  He quipped, “I did not want to walk in even with the aid of a cane, but I did so in spite of my vanity.” After the first presentation, Jack was invited to lunch by the committee.  They plan to visit a tavern that, according to history, was a favorite drinking and eating spot of none other than John Adams.  Jack  sadly declined, because of his physical discomfort.  He added, “I wanted to go but I was hurting too much. But I received good feedback about my presentations; they liked them.”
Jack frequently gives historical presentations all over the country.  In my discussion with Jack, he did not think I knew about Hyam  Solomon.  I told him I had learned about Hyam and the fact that he helped finance the American Revolutionary War.  Jack responded with, “I frequently give PowerPoint presentations about George Washington going to  Hyam for financial support for the war effort. Hyam did not let Washington down.  He was able to get contributions from his synagogue to support the revolutionary war; he was a real patriot.”
