Peter Salem, a slave who was freed to fight in his master’s militia, is credited for stepping forward at a critical point in the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775 and firing the shot that killed British Royal Marine Major John Pitcairn.

Salem was already a veteran who had stood with the Framingham militia at Concord 2 months earlier.Serving in Colonel Nixon’s regiment, he saw action in the NYC Campaign and several major battles throughout the war, including the Battles of Saratoga, the 19th of September and the 7th of October, 1777 and the Battle of Stony Point, July 15-16, 1779.

It is important to note that many African Americans participated in the Revolution and fought on the American side. Peter Salem, Salem Poor and Prince Estabrook were 3 such soldiers who all fought with honor at Concord & Lexington where Estabrook was wounded.
