A retired public school educator, Marion T. Lane is one of the few African American members of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and the Society of Descendants of Washington's Army at Valley Forge. Lane is also the only African American member of The National Gavel Society, which is open to presidents of heritage societies. Orginally from Philadelphia, Lane now resides in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
Many children do not know that African indentured servants, as well as free blacks and slaves, all assisted in the founding of our nation. There were between 5,000 to 20,000 patriots of African and Native American descent who served in the Continental Forces under the command of General George Washington. This stunning new picture book is historical fiction, told by the family historian to his great-grandson about their family's military and patriotic service as African-Americans during the Revolutionary War. The two are direct descendants of two patriots. One was a free black man, Sergeant Isaac Brown, who served in the 7th, 11th and 15th Virginia Regiments of the Continental Line. Readers ages eight and older will be fascinated as they learn about our country's forgotten patriots.
