Meet a Black Revolutionary War Soldier
at the Brick Academy
On Sunday, April 23, Meet a Black Revolutionary War Soldier at the Brick Academy.
You will meet Ned Hector, who was a teamster (wagon driver) and artillerist for Proctor’s 3rd Pa Artillery in the Battle of Brandywine and Germantown. His reenactor, Noah Lewis, brings to life the struggles and bravery of African American soldiers fighting for the cause of American independence. Noah is a black living history educator who creates a memorable learning experience through audience participation and laughter.
You will also have a chance to explore the Brick Academy’s ongoing exhibit “Slavery in Our Own Backyard,” which focuses on the history of slavery in the Somerset Hills. The exhibit features the story of an enslaved black Revolutionary War soldier, Samuel Sutphin, who fought bravely in some of the most famous battles of the Revolutionary War.
