Overview

New Hampshire, despite its small size, played a significant role in the American Revolution. The deeds of the state's soldiers and other notable citizenry have been well documented but the contributions of the black population have never been fully explored until now.

The largest part of this book consists of the service records of all known black soldiers with ties to New Hampshire: 139 who served in New Hampshire's forces, 34 who served in New Hampshire and another colony's forces, and 51 who served in another colony's forces but lived in New Hampshire at some point in their lives. The work also provides information on life for blacks in New Hampshire before, during and after the American Revolution, and information on campaigns and engagements that blacks from New Hampshire were known to have taken part in.
