    In the same way the Caucasians did. There were heroes amongst Blacks as well. Also, white and black women would follow their husbands who were fighting in the war. They would cook food, care for the wounded, carry supplies, and bring water to soldiers on the field. Though you will find more information on white women doing so (Mary Ludwig Hays, Deborah Sampson) black women did the same. Though in 1775 George Washington did not allow black to fight because he was afraid that they would (1) run away, (2) turn their guns on their masters, or (3) would be too afraid to shoot at the British. Also from Wikipedia: As a result of the looming crisis in 1775 the Royal Governor of Virginia, Lord Dunmore issued a proclamation that promised freedom to servants and slaves who were able to bear arms and join his Loyalist Ethiopian regiment. About 800 did so and were able to convincingly rout the Virginia militia at Kemp's Landing. They then fought the Battle of Great Bridge on the Elizabeth River, wearing the motto "Liberty to Slaves," but this time they were defeated. The remains of their regiment were then involved in the evacuation of Norfolk, after which they served in the Chesapeake area. Unfortunately the camp that they had set up there suffered an outbreak of smallpox and other diseases. This took a heavy toll, putting many of them out of action for some time. The survivors joined other British units and continued to serve throughout the war. Blacks were often the first to come forward to volunteer and a total of 12,000 Blacks served with the British from 1775 to 1783. This factor had the effect of forcing the Revolutionaries to also offer freedom for those who served in the Continental army, but after the war, most actually remained as slaves
