The Maryland Society Sons of the American Revolution (MDSSAR) is very pleased to report the finding and return of a very old relic of our early society. Our State Society is now 125 Years old founded in 1889 and a large framed autographed photograph of the Officers of the 1901-1902 State Board was returned to Maryland after being found in a trash heap in NC ready to be disposed of for eternity. Larry Baily of Cary NC was dropping off refuse when he noticed a large frame picture standing to the side with a group of men in business suits.
A beautifully framed replica of Rembrandt Peale’s “porthole” portrait of George Washington now greets the students of Our Lady of Hope / St. Luke School thanks to the generosity of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) and the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association (MVLA).
