Photos Exist of American Revolutionary War Veterans

The Last Men of the Revolution - Archiving Early America

Rev. Daniel Waldo
Incredible though it may seem, six veterans who served in the Revolution were alive eighty-three years after British General Cornwallis surrendered to the Americans at Yorktown ending the War of Independence. Even more incredible is that, because of Rev. Hillard’s efforts, photos of the six veterans are available in the historical record, the only photos of any of the War’s soldiers.
I've blogged about Rev. Waldo before, but thought this page with pictures of other veterans of the Revolutionary War merited a link for Memorial Day.
