Col. George Middleton: Black Revolutionary War hero

During the time of the American Revolution, George Middleton (1735-1815) was recognized as a great fighter for liberty and independence, and a respected leader among the community of blacks living in Boston.

How a family maneuvers through this predictable but nonetheless traumatic physiological reality may be the most revealing moment in that family’s history.
