One of our blog followers sent me a wonderful link. It’s not even hidden, but I have never found it before. There is much power is collaboration. Hat tip to Elaine for this wonderful link!
The DAR has really modernized their site over the past few years and become much more friendly.
They have two items of interest, both free, and downloadable. Nothing like instant gratification. I can hear my printer burning ink and paper as I type this. Do be aware of the size of the book before you print it:)
The book is titled Forgotten Patriots: African-American and American Indian Patriots in the Revolutionary War. There is also a later supplement to this work.
Both are available at their website at http://www.dar.org/library/fp.cfm
The book itself is available directly at this link, which is a pdf and you can then save to your computer. http://www.dar.org/library/publications/Forgotten_Patriots_ISBN-978-1-892237-10-1.pdf
The supplement pdf is available at this link. http://www.dar.org/library/publications/Forgotten_Patriots_Supplement_2008-2001_ISBN-978-1-892237-13-2.pdf
I just wish I could read faster!!! I’ll be blogging about each state and their Indian patriots as I work through this document.
