Almost Invisible - Black Patriots of the American Revolution  

Stories of 25 African American patriots rarely told until now. Included are Oscar Marion, a slave who fought alongside the Swamp Fox, Francis Marion, and James Armistead, a spy for Marquis de Lafayette. In the northern colonies many black - both free and slave, fought for the patriot cause. In the southern colonies, especially in South Carolina and Georgia, few slaves were armed, but blacks made other contributions to the patriot cause. In George Washington's Continental Army over 5,000 African Americans served. Illustrations were done in colored pencil and gouache.
