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".

Names of our Founding Fathers are generally known and important to our history. However, this particular Doctor who played a large role in the Revolutionary War changed his name later in life. He was a well known local Doctor who was withdrawn and very private, but very much loved. His history and his contribution to American independence was not known by his patients or the local Citizens who knew him well. It was only after his death that it was discovered who this particular individual was. Watch and find out who this was and what he did for the American Revolution!  Thank you for watching.  Revolutionary War Rarities is the Podcast of the Sons of the American Revolution.

The Father of the Revolution

Sunday Feb 19, 2023

Sunday Feb 19, 2023


The American Revolution would not have been possible without the participation of so many different people. And, there are so many of those individuals whose names we rarely or maybe never hear. Although we have all heard "taxation without representation", very few people know exactly where that thought process originated. Well, his name was James Otis. According to John Adams, James Otis was the "Father of the American Revolution". James Otis fought countless legal battles against the British, ultimately became insane, and lost his life in a bolt of lightning.
 
Please enjoy this episode as we dive into the name "James Otis" a bit further. Thank you for being a part of Revolutionary War Rarities. Please subscribe to this YouTube Channel and click the bell. Please also join our Facebook Group. Now, enjoy our latest episode.

The Deane From Groton

Sunday Jan 22, 2023

Sunday Jan 22, 2023

There were many "little known" heroes in the American Revolution. Silas Deane was one of those. Silas Deane worked with France to secure money and weapons and other resources for the Revolution. Silas Deane recruited the Marquis De Lafayette and Baron Von Stueben, who without either of them victory would have been even more questionable. After being accused of financial improprieties while in France, his life changed dramatically. His name was destroyed, his finances were destroyed, he was considered a traitor (for some period of time), and he died without ever recovering his good name. In the end, his name was cleared, but it took many years and his name never reached many of the history books where it rightfully belonged! Enjoy this Season 1 Episode 15, "The Deane From Groton".
