Years ago, the MDSSAR donated $5000 to the creation of a display case in the State House for GW's resignation speech that came out of private hands - it sounds like there will be a ceremony to unveil it now.
The War of 1812 Society in the State of Maryland invites members of the Sons of the American Revolution to participate in our Annual January Jackson Day Celebration on January 17th. Please feel free to send this invitation along with your January announcements as we are happy to host your January breakfast and meeting at the MD Club prior to this luncheon again this year.
The ceremony begins at 4:15, so members participating should be at the tomb by 3:55. The wreath party needs to be there no later than 3:30 so we can report to the Tomb Guard Quarters by 3:45. The wreath party will be the PG, the highest ranking VASSAR officer present, the GW Chapter president, and the highest ranking color guardsman present. Please contact Michael Elstonif you have any questions about the event.
