what should the sticker be for someone who was a soldier in the American Revolution?

with all the recent project box/sticker changes, I've lost track of correct templates.

This profile has a red (meaning non-existent) Template:American Revolution in a location suggesting it was meant to be a sticker.

I could not  locate a sticker (or a project box) with that name.

Could folks from 1776 and Military & War Projects take a look?

Thanks!

I thought it was {{1776}} ?
by Maggie N. G2G6 Pilot (890k points)

{{1776}} is a project box, and with all the projects changing their policies in light of the clarified guidelines (if project box, then managed by said project*), I didn't want to add a project box if the profile manager and/or the project had decided project management of the profile was not needed.

I inferred a sticker was intended since the red text was below ==Biography== (correct for a sticker/not for a project box).

 * Maggie - I know you're up on all that, but for anyone who needs more info about my if/then comment, see [this g2g] for a fuller explanation on the clarified guidelines.

Hi Liz,

I didn't see service records, so I added the following two categories:

[[Category: NSDAR Patriot Ancestors]]
[[Category: Patriotic Service, Virginia, American Revolution]]

and the DAR template in sources. If the profile isn't managed by the 1776 project, you don't need the {{ 1776 }} template.
