Samuel Downing, Revolution War veteran

My daughter Autumn Rhodes on many occasions has sent me to interesting websites, and once again she comes through with one that I feel inclined to send your way. The site is part of, the link off this site is called “THE LAST MEN OF THE REVOLUTION“. The pages of this website are from a book of the same name by REV. ELIAS B. HILLARD, which was originally published in 1864. The site features a half a dozen of the last known Revolutionary War servicemen who where still living in 1865. The site gives autobiographies on the men, photos of them, color sketches of their homes, and more. If you would like a copy of the original 1864 publication of the book it can go for well over $7800.00, fortunately it was reprinted in 1968 and that copy sells from about $98 via
