He was the paymaster-general of the French military forces in the early years of the United States. It is asserted that more than $10,000 which he advanced was never repaid. He lent the young United States government about $600,000, and at his death about $400,000 of this amount had not been repaid. This sum was in addition to what he had lent to statesmen and others while performing public duties and trusts. Jacob Bader Marcus wrote in Early American Jewry that the sum owed to Solomon was $800,000. That amount in 1785 is equivalent in purchasing power to about US$22 million in 2005 dollars. [1]

Solomon came to New York in 1772 and joined the Sons of Liberty. He was a brilliant financier and one of George Washington's personal friends. In 1776 he was captured and sentenced to death by the British, but he used his knowledge of German to convince his Hessian jailer to let him out and desert to the American forces. He then escaped penniless to Philadelphia. It was during this period of incarceration where he contracted tuberculosis.



During the American Revolution, Solomon went to France and raised an additional £3.5 million from the Sassoon and Rothschild banking houses and families. He spoke eight languages. When Solomon was in France, he passed himself off as a French diplomat.

Despite his business acumen, he died penniless.


This stamp, like others in the "Contributors to the Cause" series, was printed on the front and the back. On the glue side of the stamp, the following words were printed in pale, green ink:

"Financial Hero—Businessman and broker Haym Solomon was responsible for raising most of the money needed to finance the American Revolution and later to save the new nation from collapse."

The Americans crushed the Hessian Mercenaries too during the revolution. Then Washington welcomed Jews while America was still anti-German.

I bet the neo-nazis really love that shit.

@B-Pep: your point?

My point? That America was a jewish controlled nation from day 1. While Anglo-Saxon's bashed "swarthy Germans" and "Negroid Irishmen" they put jews on the pedestal.

This is just a point to make for all the naive yankee "white nationalists" on this board who romanticize America before the 1960's.

Another noble cause supported by Jewry.

Correct B-Pep. Moses Michael Hayes was grandmaster of Paul Revere's Lodge.

And the Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel who sold his subjects military service employed the Rothschilds as his tax farmers.

How many people might have lived - if only people understood the malignancy of the Jews.

Your connection is tenuous at best. If America were such a citadel of 'Jewry' then why would Henry Ford and Walt Disney (both avowed antisemites) be viewed as American heros?

While Anglo-Saxon's bashed "swarthy Germans" and "Negroid Irishmen" they put jews on the pedestal.

At what point in our history prior to our involvement in Israel have we been putting Jews on a pedestal?

America lost any nobility it had left when if federalized back in the early 19th century. Although it gained some nobility back in its war against that degenerate lunatic who dared to call himself a German [Hitler], it promptly through it away in the late 40's and 50's.

Was walt Disney an antisemite? Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act show that from 1941 until his death, he spied for the FBI on union activity in Hollywood, and illegally intimidated union activists. Since Jews were prominent in the labour movement, some employees felt that Disney's actions were motivated by anti-semitism. However, there is no evidence of this. Source: Wikipedia

How is it that finding a couple of jews in the woodpile makes something Jew controlled? We really need to give ourselves much more credit than we do and quit believing in the notion that jews are so damn superior that the presence of a few of them means they have total control over the stupid, inept goyim. Do you believe there were not many white gentiles who gave much time and money to the cause of the american revolution?

I really can't think of many instances in the more distant past that would tend to indicate jews were put on a pedestal. There didn't seem to be as much tension between jewish and gentile populations as there were in other nations, but this hardly indicates jewish domination or jews being put on a pedestal.

B-pep, I need to ask exactly what about american life was so disturbing to you before the period you list? We were a bit of a different nation prior to that very destructive time. If you are trying to get people to hate everything about this nation and what is was about and stood for from the beginning, you would need to bring forth a lot more arguments and evidence of why this should be. Listing a jew involved in the american revolution does not cut it.

Get with the program, Odysseus. Henry Ford should be among the first studies a budding young commie such as yourself undertakes.

If you were to do a bit of research you'd find Henry Ford was hardly the evil "anti-semite" he's occassionally made out to be. Some of his closest associates were Jews, in fact.

So there were a couple rich jews who helped finance the revolution... that doesn't mean they had much influence in early American policy or that the general population "put them on a pedestal". The fact that he died penniless seems to indicate that he was doing it for altruistic/personal reasons (ideological support of the revolution, and ensuring himself a place in a country safe to get his jew on, I suppose)

Judah P. Benjamin held prominent posts in the Confederate government but that doesn't "prove" that Confederates loved Jews, anymore than Northerners did.

To put it another way: prior to the 20th century most Jews involved in American politics smartly conformed to the surrounding [Anglo] establishment. They didn't really start raising hell until the Ostjuden from the slums of Eastern Europe made their way here in large numbers, bringing Bolshevism and other assorted garbage with them. By then, their foothold was significant enough that they could start advancing their own interests.

One thing is clear though.

At the time of the revolution, Jews were NOT seen as enemies of Americans. It was the British (even though they shared blood) and before that the French and Spainish. It was the German Hessians. But it was not the Jews.

The American revolutionaries were not anti-Semetic.

Certain American Jews allied themselves with the patriots in the American Revolution, but others, especially some of the richer ones, fearing a movement that aimed to secure greater freedom for the common people, became Tories. David Franks, one of the Philadelphia merchants who had signed the original non-importation agreements, became a prominent Tory and was charged with giving secret aid to the enemy.

In July 1780, the state of Rhode Island passed an act of banishment against those who had "left this State and joined the enemies thereof." Included in this list was Isaac Hart, wealthy Jewish merchant of Newport, who was a Tory. In 1776, when New York fell into British hands, 15 Jews joined with others in signing a "loyal address" to Sir William Howe and his brothers, Lord Howe. Abraham Wagg, one of the 15, served in the British militia and in 1778 engaged in propaganda for the king by urging the Americans to end their alliance with France and agree to a negotiated peace with England.

My eyes glaze over when trying to decipher anything about finances, but I've got an interesting article which indicates that claims of Haym Solomon being the "financial hero of the American Revolution" are completely groundless.
