I just saw this discussion and have some comments/suggestions.
I have an ancestor who is recognized by the DAR. He was from Louisiana which was under Spanish control at the time. Galvez, the governor, practiced a pro-France, anti-British policy and joined the revolutionaries in their war.
I added some categories a while back (some of which are in desperate need of better names... especially the first one). They are:
* "Contributions From Areas Other than Original 13 States" I believe something along this lines should be incorporated into the main list of categories under the American Revolution category.
under that category is
*"Louisiana Militia in the American Revolution" and
*"The Galvez Expedition" (with a written article attached)... it was this group of Louisiana and German Coastal Militia that fought in the Battle of Baton Rouge amongst other smaller battles.
I also placed "The Galvez Expedition" under "Spanish Military History"
This profile http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Fruge-78 for
Pierre Antoine Fruge is my ancestor who the DAR recognizes as being part of the Galvez Expedition. (I have another also from Louisiana but he doesn't meet the requirements of being on a certain militia roll in order to be said to have participated in the Galvez Expedition.)
I' hope providing my ancestor's profile link will help make what I am confusedly saying above a little more clear.
