Documentary filmmaker and historian Chris Haugh will keynote the semi-annual meeting of the Sergeant Lawrence Everhart Chapter of the Maryland Society of Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) on Thursday, October 8, 2015 at Dutch’s Daughter Restaurant (581 Himes Avenue, Frederick). The luncheon program is open to the public and will commence with a social at 11:30 AM.
Widely-known for instigating the Boston Tea Party in 1773, the Sons of Liberty were actually quite active in the American colonies in the mid-1760’s. Frederick County boasted its own Sons of Liberty organization formed in response to the infamous British Stamp Act of 1765, a historical fact not lost upon Distillery Lane Ciderworks Owner Rob Miller, who, with Cidermaker Tim Rose, has created a “Sons of Liberty Cider” to mark the 250th Anniversary of The Repudiation Act in Frederick County.
Eight lineal descendants of men who fought in the battles of the American Revolution in support of the cause of American Independence were inducted recently into the membership of the Sergeant Lawrence Everhart Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution. 2015-2016 SAR Chapter President Donald Deering affirms: “Each Compatriot honors the sacrifice of his forebears with membership in this historical, educational and patriotic organization.”
"In ceremonies at its 95th annual meeting, the Sergeant Lawrence Everhart Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution honored Brunswick resident Richard Foot with the SAR’s War Service Medal in recognition of his honorable service in U.S. armed forces..."
