America’s Revolutionary War included all types of Patriots with different ethnic backgrounds although the diversity of the first American Army has not been well publicized. Many of these early American heroes have been honored and remembered through gravesite markings, ceremonies and Patriotic remembrances. But there was a small group of Patriots in eastern North Carolina that, until last year, had been largely forgotten for their bravery and contributions to American Independence. The NCSSAR hosted a ceremony honoring the first male descendant of several of those previously Forgotten Revolutionary War Patriots of the North Harlowe community by inducting Edward Earl Carter as one of the newest compatriots of the Society and the second African-American compatriot of the North Carolina Society. Mr. Carter is a native son of the North Harlowe community, but now lives in Greenville, North Carolina, where he is a retired pharmaceutical industry executive and a former Mayor of the City of Greenville.
