What was one recruiting method used by American colonists to enlist more slaves into the Revolutionary army in the war against the British?

The American Revolutionary War provided slaves with an incentive to join the fight against the British. American slaveholders were provided with incentives to allow their slaves the opportunity to become soldiers in the War, and to eventually gain their freedom. In the New York colony, 500 acres of land were offered to any slaveholder who allowed each slave to enlist for 3 years in the Colonial Army. For the most part, these slaves became freed men as part of their own compensation for fighting the British. The British also courted Black men into their ranks.
