Be A Part Of Preserving United States History!
I’m proud to say I’m a backer participant in the Kickstarter of Maureen Taylor’s film “Revolutionary Voices” A Last Muster Film. She and Verissima Productions are raising funds to get this film made about Revolutionary era people who lived during the time our country was becoming a nation. I hope you will join me in helping make this historical film possible by contributing what you can to the endeavor. See more about this film by clicking the video below.
My Revolutionary War Era Ancestors
You may not know it, but the faces you see in these images might be those of someone who was a child during the Revolutionary War era. Why do I say that? Because the people in these tintypes are of a certain age that might have fit that criteria. The tintypes are from my Yates family and my grandfather Will Yates probably inherited them when his own father Jim Yates passed away. They sat in a closet or dresser for many years until I asked for them.
