The “Patriots of the American Revolution” was a fascinating historic commemoration of the Boyd and Parker Ambush during the Sullivan Campaign of the Revolutionary War.
We met at the American Revolutionary War Monument in Mount Hope Cemetery, and learned how the Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution had joined forces to provide a beautiful and permanent memorial for these almost-forgotten heroes who, for so many years, had lain in neglected, unmarked, unhonored graves.
Historian Mike Tunison told the story of Boyd and Parker and explained the significance of the Sullivan Campaign and George Washington’s plan to win the war. We were all captivated by his presentation and were eager to hear Mr. Tunison share his information again so that all our members could learn this story.
This ceremony was presented by the Daughters, the Sons, and the Children of the American Revolution.
It was an honor to attend this patriotic event.
