Tribute to the Patriot Black
by Roger W Hancock
Little recorded was the Patriot Black,
five thousand or so had fought the fight.
Blacks fought at Lexington as Minutemen;
Black bravery spent for liberty's cause.
Freemen, servants, and slaves were brave.
Whatever their motive; liberty's cause;
Black men fought in every battle.
Many names, were scarce recorded,
yet Black-men bled, American red.
