Back To the Revolution!

Myers, Colby, Drayer, Sprung

In honor of Uncle Barney Myers’ 105th birthday, I prepared a slideshow for the family reunion in Billings, Montana, held in late July, 2015. I have added audio narration, background music, and a few more slides and stories for this video version, now available via YouTube. There are old photos, documents, and other evidence tracing four lines of Barney’s ancestry (and my own, and dozens of Myers relatives’) back to Revolutionary War times. Ancestors in at least two lines were Patriot soldiers, and another was a Redcoat! And yes, ancestors of ours were present at the locale of the battle depicted in the top photo.
