Abstract:

Tells the story of the black slaves who fought against Hessian troops in the Battle of Rhode Island during the Revolutionary War, and describes the role they played in the war and the formation of the Black Regiment. In the Battle of Rhode Island during the Revolutionary War, the Black Regiment successfully fought off three determined attacks, thus preventing the capture of a large Colonial force. The Black Regiment went on to serve with distinction at Yorktown, establishing a proud tradition of African American military service and proving the valor and discipline of black men in an era when slavery was rampant.
