Revelutionary War Soldier All his decendents should be proud of Lewis Adkins for his longand very hard seven years service in the Revoluntionary War.Only a VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE of the soldiers in this war foughtas long as seven years. He suffered through the early defeatsand retreats at Brandywine and Germantown. He also went throughthe terrible winter at Valley Forge with General GeorgeWashington. At the fall of Charleston, SC. he was one of only a handful ofmen from his brigade who escaped capture and prison for the restof the war, on the right flank in the first line, a very exposedand dangerous position call "Post of Honor". His decimatedregiment then became part of the group that went to SouthCarolina and Georgia to fight the rest of the war. He waswounded in Geogia in 1782. He was a "chip off the old block" ofhis GGGrandfather, Richard Adkins, who had fought in Bacon'sRebellion, the first armed revolt against the British in 1676,exactly 100 years before Lewis enlisted in the RevoluntionaryWar in 1776.
