He was born on 28 October, 1754, to Eleanor Ball and Henry Laurens. He was educated in Europe before sailing back to America in 1777 to join the Revolutionary War, leaving behind a wife who was eight-months pregnant. He soon became an aide-de-camp to George Washington and became extremely close friends with Alexander Hamilton to the point where some people speculate whether or not they were lovers. Besides anything related to Hamilton, whether it be the person or the musical, Laurens is perhaps best known for his black regiment plan, a regiment of 3,000 slaves from South Carolinian and Georgian plantations, who would all receive freedom after the war. He even asked his father if the forty slaves he would get in his father’s Will be given to him early so they could join the regiment. In other words, he was willing to risk anything for the emancipation of slaves. Laurens was killed during the Battle of Combahee River—a meaningless skirmish fought in South Carolina over rice at the end of the Revolutionary War—on 27 August, 1782. He was only 27 years old and was one of the last casualties of the Revolutionary War. Portrait of John Laurens as a POW done by Charles Willson Peale in 1780. Anthony Ramos as John Laurens, who originated the role on Broadway, in Hamilton: An American Musical
