A Connecticut Yankee in the King's RangersSaturday April 24, 2021
2:00 AM until 3:00 AM
"A Connecticut Yankee in the King's Rangers: One Oliver Graham (1758-1838), or Two Men?" demonstrates using correlation and analysis to merge the identities of a man who served in the Connecticut and New York Militia during the Revolutionary War with a United Empire Loyalist soldier of the same name. The presentation covers the difference between "search" and "research," employing Canadian and U.S. census records, obituaries, military records, and an original artifact that directly links to the man's identity.
