We are very lucky to have among our forefathers a number of people who served in the American Revolution. There are
probably a lot more, so we'll keep looking and listing and ask that you let us know of any we might have omitted. Updates in orange.

(Of special interest: Moses, John, and James McCarter
were all members of Marion's Rangers, [or Marion's Brigade], led by Brigadier General Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox.
William Sims was a member of Hogg's Rangers, led by Captain Peter Hogg. It is likely that Dr. Martin Shultz
was the only Patriot doctor present at the Battle of King's Mountain. He was one of the Overmountain Men) .
Jeffrey Beck, Sr. was a member of the "Regulators," a North Carolina pre-Revolutionary
War group, that rose in protest against corrupt British practices before the "real" war broke out. He was at the Battle
of Alamance where the British handily defeated the some 2,000 ill-organized colonists.
