The Colonel William Grayson (CWG) Chapter Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) and the Elizabeth McIntosh Hammill (EMH) Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) have partnered to participate in Patriotic events throughout Virginia this year. To allow the EMH Chapter to participate without borrowing a DAR flag, the CWG Chapter of SAR purchased a new DAR flag and presented it to the EMH Chapter at their September Chapter meeting.
So far this year the CWG and EMH Chapters have joined forces to recognize various patriots and events. These include Patrick Henry at his tomb at Redhill Plantation, Brookneal, VA; the placement of a Patriot of the American Revolution Marker on the grave of Patriot James Campbell in Alexandria, VA; and the celebration of the 243rd anniversary of the Fairfax Resolves at the Historic Fairfax Court House. Both Chapters will participate in the Yorktown Victory day celebration at Yorktown 19 October. The CWG Chapter will support DAR for the Commemoration of WW 1 at the Historic Prince William County Courthouse in Manassas on Veterans Day 2017, and the EMH Chapter will march with CWG Chapter in the Greater Manassas Veterans Day Parade on 4 November.
