During the Revolutionary War, Colonel Louis Cook was both the highest-ranking African American officer and Native American officer, yet his name is not often one we associate with those battles. In this podcast, join curator Peter Whiteley for an exploration of the life of this exceptional man, who deserves a more prominent place in American history.

This lecture took place at the Museum on April 14, 2015.
