Ned Hector: Revolutionary War Hero: A Living History Presentation

Ned Hector: Revolutionary War Hero: A Living History Presentation In-Person

Ned Hector is a Revolutionary War hero, a free black man, who was a teamster and noted for his courage during the retreat from the Battle of Brandywine, where he refused to give up his horses, wagon and the armaments he was carrying.

Noah Lewis of Upper Darby, PA brings Edward “Ned” Hector to life as a costumed educator at presentations for children and adults alike at schools, clubs and historic sites.  Noah dresses in costume of the Third Pennsylvania Artillery Company to bring his message—his passion—about the role of African-Americans in the Colonial fight for freedom during the Revolutionary War. Noah says he is an unlikely person to serve as a Revolutionary War costumed interpreter given his background, but he is a convincing and meticulous researcher about his character, Ned.

Noah uses both first person and third person interpretation throughout his presentations, which allows him, as Ned Hector, to explore universal themes about liberty, courage and responsibility. His teaching has been lauded throughout the region.

Noah Lewis was born in Heidelberg, Germany. His degrees are in biology and electronics. He is a widowed father with four children who resides in Upper Darby, PA on the outskirts of Philadelphia.

You should get to know more about Ned Hector and Noah Lewis. View the web site at www.nedhector.com for more information.
