Black Heroes of the American Revolution (Paperback)
Includes a bibliography, a foreword by Senator Edward W. Brooke, and an index.
BURKE DAVIS (1913–2006) was a historian and noted author associated with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. He wrote more than thirty books, many about the colonial period in American history, and received many accolades.
"In a very readable style, the author relates the stories of a few of the approximately 5,000 black soldiers who participated in the Revolution, emphasizing their unselfishness fighting a war from which few would substantially benefit."--School Library Journal —
