The first lady and I were already planning on attending the Atlantic Middle States Conference in Rochester, NY, Aug. 7 -9. I needed to stop in New York City to visit officials of the History Channel. So, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to visit the First Continental Chapter in New York City. I called my long time friend, former Historian General, and current NSSAR Ambassador to Scotland, Dick Sage. Dick arranged for John Hilliard, current chapter president to give us a tour of the Revolutionary War historic sights in lower Manhattan and a luncheon at Fraunces Tavern.
