A Revolutionary Trio

It takes a long time to make a dream a reality. In this case, it was five years from concept to completion. Financial support for this project came from you through our Kickstarter and fundraising campaign. Thank you for making my wish come true: a “Last Muster”-related set of films.

Eleazer Blake

Fitzwilliam and Rindge, New Hampshire are lovely towns situated on country roads. A blurry picture of Revolutionary War veteran, Eleazer Blake led me there. I arrived with Vermissima Productions on a typical spring New England day. It was cold, blustery, and sunny. We were hunting for details of Blake’s wartime service. We discovered many more treasures than we anticipated. A lot more.

Agrippa Hull

Stockbridge, Massachusetts.  It’s a picturesque town in the Berkshires. It is home to the Norman Rockwell Museum and where the sculptor Daniel Chester French once lived. It is also where Revolutionary War patriot, Agrippa Hull resided.

On a steamy summer day, myself and Verissima Productions explored the town. We weren’t there to see the tourist sites, instead, we sought Agrippa’s story.

Molly Ferris Akin

An old Akin Family Association newsletter story mentioned Molly Ferris Akin. Did the young Quaker woman really sneak into the British encampment and fire a musket? If so, then she supposedly alerted the Americans to their location in Pawling, New York. The pieces of her story weren’t in one place. Verissima Productions and I traveled to Dartmouth, (Massachusetts), Pawling, and to coastal Maine. See what you think. Did she or didn’t she?


We made that trip 5 years ago! It takes a long time to make a dream a reality. Financial support for this project came from you through our Kickstarter and fundraising campaign.  Thank you for making my wish come true.

Do you want to know more about my search for images of the men and women who lived during the Revolutionary War period? Sign up for my newsletter. I’m working on a third book in the Last Muster series.
