 PATRIOTS 

Men and women who served our country during the American Revolutionary War as military personnel, providers of supplies, jurors, civil servants, and other patriotic services qualify them to be Patriots. These Patriots aided in achieving American independence between the time of the Battle of Lexington and the withdrawal of British troops from New York. A list of acceptable services that qualify an individual to be a Patriot can be found here.
