We invite those interested in learning more about the E Pluribus Unum Educational Initiative’s ongoing efforts to recover, center, and remember the American Revolution’s Patriots of Color to consult the following list of resources on African American, American Indian, and multiracial contributors to the War effort.

This expanding list features published scholarly books, monographs, articles, genealogy guides and tutorials, museum exhibits and directories, databases and archives, historical film links and recommendations, and recent news pieces, among other sources, which you are encouraged to pursue. Be sure to bookmark and check this space in the future for new resources and developments as they become available.

Featured Collaboration – 10 Million Names

The 10 Million Names initiative was launched by American Ancestors with the goal of finding the names of nearly 10 million people of African descent who were enslaved in pre- and post-colonial America. As this goal specifically overlaps with our aim to honor Black patriots (both freed and enslaved) who fought in the American Revolution, DAR is proud to be a founding collaborating institution to the 10 Million Names project. We have shown our support by sharing financial resources and data from our Patriots of Color database.
