An Unknown Soldier A Veteran's Story

In Honor of Memorial Day

My service goes back, way back to the Battle of Bunker Hill. I was in the (Continental)Army (formed June 14, 1775) with a rank of field officer and my rank could be seen on my hat with a pink or red cockade. I was a captain. Serving under General George Washington. I fought with my flintlock musket, a pistol and my bayonets. It was a tremendous battle, where over 400 of my fellow soldiers died for America. The British wounded and or dead topped 1,000. This battle was called the bloodiest of the Revolutionary War. I was proud to serve and I can be found in an unmarked grave near Charlestown.
