Learn about American Revolutionary War Hero Casimir Pulaski
The name Pulaski has intriqued me for years. From Pulaski Avenue in the south Chicago suburbs, to Casimir Pulaski Day, and most recently to the civil war fort, Fort Pulaski. Being of Polish decent myself, I decided to do some research on the Polish American hero Casimir Pulaski to find out whatever I could and bring together different resources to one single page. If you don't learn something, at the very least I hope you find this interesting.
The first thing I found out, was General Pulaski's first name is not spelled Casimir, instead it is spelled Kazimierz. The birth date and birth place in Poland of Kazimierz Pulaski is questioned with different sources indicating 1745, 1747, and 1748. His death is not in question, as he died of wounds at the Battle of Savannah during the Revolutionary War on October 11th, 1779 (Ask.com has his death on October 15th). However, his remains remain a mystery. Whether he was buried at sea as some accounts say, or is entombed in Savannah, Georgia, we owe a lot to General Casimir Pulaski.
