Long Description:
In 1781, Isaac Hammond, a free black and barber in the Fayetteville, North Carolina community enlisted as a soldier in the Revolutionary War. He served in the 10th Regiment of the NC Continental Line during the American Revolution. Shortly after the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry was organized in 1793, Isaac Hammond became the first Company Fifer.

According to North Carolina colonial records, Isaac Hammond was a member of Captain Jones' Company in the 10th Regiment of the North Carolina Continental Line. It was his dying request that he be buried on the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry Company Parade Ground, near the famous Cool Spring, where he could be near the Company, in spirit, that he loved and served.
