Two 5th great-grandfathers of mine fought at Yorktown, the battle that ended the War, another was in Boston during the beginning...so where do I sign up?
Here is my 5th Great Grandfather

One of my fifth GGs also fought at Yorktown and for a year during the early dark years was a personal guard for Washington. Two others were Minutemen.
