Patriot's Day: My Revolutionary War Soldiers

It's Patriot's Day (19 April) in Massachusetts - where they honor the persons involved in the "shot heard round the world" at Lexington and Concord.

I wanted to list, and link to my blog posts about, my known Revolutionary War soldiers - not just from Massachusetts, but from all of the colonies.  

* Martin Carringer (1758-1835) of Mercer County PA (RevWar Pension file)
