The new and revised printing of Forgotten Patriots: African American and American Indian Patriots in the Revolutionary War, compiled by the Daughters of the American Revolution, fills a large hole in African-American and Native American research.
Each entry includes the name, race and place of residence for each known combatant. Entries are alphabetized by state. Each state entry begins with a short history of the Revolutionary War and its relation to African-American and Native American inhabitants of the area.
