Independence Day - My 23 Known Revolutionary War Soldier Ancestors - Randy's Heroes

I have listed, and linked to my blog posts (in blue), my known Revolutionary War soldier ancestors:

Amazingly, each of them survived their wartime experiences.

I thank God for these men, the families that nurtured them, the wives and families that supported them, and the children who learned from them the importance of service and devotion to their country.

Thank you, gentlemen soldiers, and your families, for your service, devotion and courage.  I am proud of you, and wish that I had known you.  You've provided me with a wonderful ancestry, and I greatly appreciate it, every day, and especially this day!

Here is a poem created by Artificial Intelligence using ChatGPT-4o:
