The Virginia SAR Patriot Graves Programs

The Virginia Society’s Revolutionary Graves Committee is responsible for encouraging and supporting chapters to register Revolutionary graves with the National Society, to update information about Revolutionary graves already registered with the National Society, and to place SAR grave markers at Revolutionary graves.

Revolutionary War Graves Program

The Virginia Society’s Virginia Revolutionary War Graves Support Committee is the administrative agent of the Revolutionary War Graves Preservation Program for the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.

 Revolutionary War Graves Preservation Program

The two committees described above work in close cooperation with one another, but their combined scope does not exhaust activities that fall under the Virginia’s Society’s Revolutionary Graves program. Activities such as cleaning up a Revolutionary patriot’s grave, obtaining a Veterans Administration monument for a Revolutionary veteran, and placing flags at the graves of Revolutionary patriots are examples of work that falls within the program, but is not in the scope of either committee.
