Lemuel Cook died at the age of 106 and was buried with full military and masonic honors. He was one of seven Revolutionary War veterans who, having survived into the age of photography, were featured in the 1864 book

Witnessed the British surrender at Yorktown, the event that guaranteed American independence. Of the event, he said, 'Washington ordered that there should be no laughing at the British; said it was bad enough to surrender without being insulted. 'The army came out with guns clubbed on their backs. They were paraded on a great smooth lot, and there they stacked their arms.'

Your picture makes me smile. Something tells me you would have been so much fun to know. May Heaven be everything you ever imagined it to be.

The daguerreotype of Lemuel Cook is extremely rare. Of the tens of thousands who fought in the American Revolutionary War, his is one of only about eleven such documented images that is known to exist.
