African and Native Americans in the Revolutionary War
September 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join AARCH Society and the Sgt. Lawrence Everhart Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution, for “African Americans and Native Americans in the Revolutionary War.”
As many as 8,000 African-Americans and Native Americans fought in the American Revolution. Some were free, and some were enslaved; whether fighting for the American or British side, they were fighting for freedom. Jameson’s presentation will draw on the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) research on Forgotten Patriots and other resources, and he will also tell of his personal search for his African-American Revolutionary War Patriots. The presentation will be given by Charles Jameson, Past President of the Culpeper Minute Men Chapter of the Virginia SAR.
The event is free and will be held at the Frederick Community College JBK Theater and Lobby.
