I am very interested in joining the 1776 Project. My 7th Great-grandfather, Nathaniel Chapin (Chapin-955), was an Ensign in the Connecticut State Levies for the Patriots. He served in Wadsworth's Brigade in Col. Comfort Sage's Regiment in various locations throughout New York in 1776. He was present for Washington's retreat from Long Island and was at the Battle of White Plains. This is my favorite era of American History and I would be honored to join the project.
