Stephan Blucke: The Black Loyalist

Stephan Blucke, 1795

Stephan Blucke was a slave in the Revolutionary War from Barbados. He fought for the British side and was known as a “black loyalist.” During his life he not only fought in the Revolutionary War but also the Province of New Jersey. Stephan was a mullato man like most slaves. This means that he is both black and white. Blucke also had a big part in the war because he was considered as the leader of all the blacks on the British side. A little after the war Blucke decided to move to New York City. Here he will marry his wife Margaret Coventry, Margaret eight years later will later leave her husband.
