Arrow My 5th g-grandfather

One of a handful of American Revolution veterans who are buried in Arlington National Cemetery, he rests in Section 1.

He was Brigadier General of Virginia Regiments in the Revolution against England. At one point he was captured by the British and was a prisoner of war for a time. Following the war, he was a Virginia State Senator.

He died on January 12, 1793 and was originally buried in a home-made coffin on his family's Virginia estate. He was reinterred in Arlington National Cemetery on July 7, 1943.

The Virginia Continentals earned an excellent reputation during the Rev War. They performed their duties at the highest level at virtually every battle. You should be proud of your ancestor.

Thank you...

I'm just beginning to make a study of their activities.
