American Revolutionary War Figure. Born in Schoharie County, New York, he was the last surviving veteran of the US Revolutionary War. He lived to see Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrender to Federal troops at Appomattox and to see Alaska purchased from Russia, to be added to the Union. On February 14, 1867, the US Congress passed a special act which granted a Revolutionary War pension to Bakeman, who proved he was a veteran of the war. He died two years later at age 109 in Freedom, New York.
