History of the Col. Aquila Hall Chapter

The Colonel Aquila Hall Chapter was first organized and chartered on September 10, 1920, primarily through the efforts of the Honorable James H. Preston of Baltimore and the Honorable Walter Preston of Bel Air. It was the first Chapter in the State of Maryland, but soon fell inactive. Efforts by Armard V. Motsinger in 1968 to bring it back were unsuccessful.
