Ed Ireland asked:

Hats off to picking one of the hardest to pronounce rivers in America. Did you ever live in Philly or is all your knowledge based on research? Also, do you know how to pronounce "Schuylkill"?

Monica Shaughnessy Sorry...just now saw this question! I've never lived in Philly. I had to do a ton of research on the city, but not the way it is now, the way it was 150 years ago. I went a little cross-eyed reading vintage maps! And I have it on good authority (from a friend who grew up in the area) that it's pronounced skool-kill. Hope that's right because that's how I've been saying it in my head. :-)
