|Revolutionary War: 1776-1781
Although there were at least 17 Haupts to serve during the American Revolution, we have no record to indicate that any died in combat. I did come across a record of a Michael Haupe who was a prisoner on the British Prisoner of War Ship "Old Jersey". Perhaps he made it out?

There were at least 14 Haupts to serve during the War of 1812. We have no record to indicate that any died in combat.

During the American Revolution (1776-1781) there were many Rheinlanders fighting against Hessians. There were even Hessians fighting Hessians. Many thousands of Hessian Troops were employed by the British. Several thousands of the colonists were from the Rheinland and Hessen.
Did you know that 23% (or 516,000) of the Union Troops in the US Civil War were of German descent with 216,000 of those being German born? Records are far more scarce for the Confederate States Army. Assuming similar percentages for the CSA, there were likely another 230,000 of German descent serving with the Confederacy with 100,000 of those being German born.
