The 1776 Project seeks to recognize those who participated in the American Revolutionary War.  

The 1776 Project honors those who were involved in the early history of the United States of America, circa 1773 through 1789, by adding and improving their profiles on WikiTree. This time period covers the Boston Tea Party, through the War for Independence, to the ratification of the United States Constitution by our Founding Fathers.

Loyalists welcome :)

Just send us your request to join and for the 1776 Project Badge by adding your answer below. Please include what you are working on or interested in so I can include it when I award your badge  Thanks!!

Several of my ancestors are Revolutionary War soldiers. I would like to join the group to see what I can learn.

I have been improving the profile for Ivory Luce Sr, my 4X great grandfather, who served with Captain Elias Weld's Vermont Militia company 1778-1780. I would like to be added to the 1776 project.

Hi, my name is Arthur Van Riper [Van Riper-81] and would like to join the 1776 Project.  I have many ancestors that served in the War for Independence (ie. Ayers, Colfax, McGlaughlin, Doremus, Rupe, Roush [the nine brothers], Zirkle and Ryerson). One ancestor was Capt, William Colfax, Commander of Washington's Life Guard and later, Brig Gen of the Bergen Brigade in the War of 1812.  He is from my home town of Wayne, NJ.

I would love to be a part of this project I have many ancestors who fought for the independence of America.  A few who were minutemen some were general soldiers and a possible relative who signed the Declaration of Independence though right now it’s only family lore.

I would like to be added to the 1776 project and would be happy to participate.  I have a number of patriot ancestors along my paternal line and one on my maternal line as well.  The best documented patriot ancestor I have is Titus Hart, (1757 - 1844) who served in the Connecticut 7th Regiment, Continental Line from 1777-1781 under Col. Heman Swift.  he enlisted on May 20, 1777 for a term of three years.  Titus saw action at Germantown, wintered at Valley Forge, saw action at Monmouth, and Stony Point.  Thanks.

Yes, I would like to be added to the 1776 project to find more information on  John McCauley 1740-1800 of Virginia. He shows up on numerous muster rolls as a drummer with the 4th Virginia Regiment.
