What does a veteran of the American Revolutionary War look like? Looks like Agrippa Hull, who lived long enough to serve in the Continental Army AND to have his photo taken.

In 1777 Agrippa joined the Continental Army. He served under General John Paterson and Colonel Thaddeus Kosciuszko. He served in nearly every major battle of the southern campaign, including Cowpens, Guilford Courthouse, the Siege of Charleston and Eutaw Springs. In July, 1783, after six years of service, Agrippa Hull was discharged personally by George Washington at West Point.  He served for a total of six years and two months and he received a veterans pension.

He is buried in Stockbridge Cemetery.
