I write to invite you most cordially to gather with the D.C. Sons of the American Revolution, the C.A.R.s, and members of many other lineage and patriotic organizations on the morning on the Fourth of July for our traditional Independence Day kickoff at Congressional Cemetery.
The 2017 meeting of Atlantic Middle-States Association of the Sons of the American Revolution will be held in Gettysburg, PA. from August 11th to 13th. The registration form is attached for those who plan to attend this popular event. I suspect this meeting will be very well attended since it is being held in Gettysburg, and recommend you register for the meeting and make your hotel reservation as early as possible.
Please join D.C. Sons of the American Revolution, D.C. C.A.R.s, and members of other lineage and patriotic societies on the morning of the Fourth of July for our traditional Independence Day kickoff at Congressional Cemetery.
The C.A.R.s lead the way at 9:30, laying a wreath at the grave of Revolutionary War drummer boy John Hunter. Then at 10:00 AM we'll move the short distance to the grave of Elbridge Gerry, where we will honor the memory of all Signers of the Declaration of Independence. As you are probably well-aware, Gerry is the only Signer buried in Washington, D.C.
The 2016 Atlantic Middle States Association Annual Conference will be hosted by the Empire State Society of the Sons of the American Revolution in Albany, New York from August 12-14, 2016. In addition to the business session, the Conference will include a special tour of the Saratoga Battlefield. The Saturday evening banquet will include a presentation titled “Arnold on Arnold, May 18, 1775: Benedict Arnold Saves America’s Revolution.”
The registration deadline is Friday, July 22, 2016.
Please come to the Jefferson Memorial next Wednesday and join DCSSAR, the National Park Service, the Military District of Washington, The University of Virginia and a host of lineage societies in commemorating Thomas Jefferson's 273rd birthday.
