Our Patriots

Who Are Our Patriots?

Female Patriots

Have you ever given consideration to the role that your female ancestors played in the Revolutionary War? Women and other under recognized individuals played an important role in the formation of our great nation. We are currently researching to add Lydia Barnes Potter as a patriot for her hard work at sewing uniforms for the soldiers during the Revolutionary War. There were many women that worked for the government washing, caring, and helping with the clothing of our dear Revolutionary soldiers. There is a publication within the DAR library that Examines Women’s and Girls’ Lives During the Revolutionary Era.

Forgotten Patriots

The DAR is working diligently to identify minority individuals who contributed to America’s independence in the Revolutionary War era. The National Society has published a book, Forgotten Patriots, which describes heroism and acts of service by American Indians and African Americans. To date, thousands of “Forgotten Patriots” have been identified, and DAR researchers continue to uncover these individuals and their unique stories.
