Our nations history has not always been something that we can look back on with great pride. But, it is critical to understand all of our history so that we can learn from our past. The Rhode Island 1st was an officially integrated regiment that fought valiantly in the American Revolution. The world would not witness another officially integrated regiment until well into the 20th century. And the non-integration of American troops would not be eliminated until an Executive Order from President Truman.
We hope you enjoy the story of the Rhode Island 1st and learn about the valiant fighting of this incredible group of men. 
Revolutionary War Rarities is the podcast from the Sons of the American Revolution.

Duels, also known as “Affairs of Honor”, were commonplace around the time of the American Revolution.  These duels were ruled by the Code Duello, a series of 25 rules defining the process required to conduct these affairs of honor.  The most famous duel in American History was between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton.  This episode dives into the Code Duello as well as the Burr - Hamilton duel.  Make sure and subscribe to our YouTube Channel, join our Facebook Group, and subscribe on your favorite podcast application.  Thank you for being a part of Revolutionary War Rarities, the podcast from the Sons of the American Revolution.

”An American Rembrandt”

Sunday Jun 11, 2023

Sunday Jun 11, 2023

The knowledge we have of our forefathers is significantly impacted by the artwork created during that period.  Many of our Founding Father’s sat for portraits and thankfully their look, their countenance, and their height were all captured.  This episode focuses on what many people would consider the “First Family” of American artists who captured important details of our founding history.  So, please watch, listen, and share this episode entitled “An American Rembrandt”.  Please also subscribe and click the bell on YouTube and join our Facebook Group.  Jim Griffith and Jim Maples will return in the next episode in a new studio with a new look.

Sunday May 28, 2023

Sunday May 28, 2023

Our language today is deeply impacted by our forefather’s.  Many common sayings of today have their origins in the American Revolution period.  Everyday idioms, which have a very specific meaning in our language, were formulated from very real problems or challenges.  And that is the subject of today’s episode of Revolutionary War Rarities.  You will be surprised how these sayings came into existence.  So, please watch and share this latest episode and make sure and subscribe and click the bell on YouTube so that you will be notified when a new episode is released.  Please also join our Facebook Group and subscribe on your favorite podcast application.  Thank you for being a part of Revolutionary War Rarities.

”$8.1 Million Dollars”

Sunday May 14, 2023

Sunday May 14, 2023

Well, today’s episode of Revolutionary War Rarities is a bit different.  This episode is titled “$8.1 Million Dollars”, but is constructed significantly through artificial intelligence.  The subject of this episode is John Dunlap, the Dunlap Broadsides, and the impact that it had on the country.  But today’s episode merges 250-year-old history with cutting edge technology just to see what happens!  So, this is an experiment from Revolutionary War Rarities.  We do not intend on this being a permanent change to RWR, but it could end up being something that we use to enhance our episodes in the future.  So, we hope you enjoy today’s episode of Revolutionary War Rarities.  Please subscribe to our YouTube Channel, join our Facebook Group, and share this episode with your friends.  And, remember that the podcast is available on most podcast applications.  We are the Podcast of the Sons of the American Revolution.

If you have ever been in the Rotunda of the United States Capitol, then you have seen four famous paintings by John Trumbull. But, very few people are aware of the impact that John Trumbull's family had on the American Revolution. In fact, John Trumbull's Father played a major role in the revolution as well as in the Colony and State of Connecticut. Other family members did the same. I hope you enjoy this episode of Revolutionary War Rarities entitled "Trumbulls Everywhere".

Eight Men Out

Sunday Apr 16, 2023

Sunday Apr 16, 2023

Were you aware that the title "Baker General" existed and was bestowed upon a Gingerbread Baker from Philadelphia during the Revolutionary War? Were you aware that the "Baker General" baked up to 6,000 pounds of bread in a single day? The "Baker General" became a trusted friend of George Washington and ended up donating a significant sum of money which started "The Christopher Ludwick Foundation" in Philadelphia. And, the "Baker General" had a way with people, including enemies, that would win them over to his "side". This is a great story about honesty, hard work, perseverance, and how to make a long-term difference in the world! We hope you enjoy "Eight Men Out".
