American Revolution

Sponsored by the Brown Family Club

This part of our Brown Family History section is devoted to all those Brown men and boys who fought for the independence of our nation as soldiers in the State Militias and the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War for Independence, 1775-1783.

If you have records or information on a Brown ancestor who served in the military during the war, please make copies of these records and send to us to preserve in the Family Library.

This site is sponsored by the Brown Family Club, a national family club dedicated to gathering and preserving family history of all Brown families.
