The 245th Anniversary of the Bermuda Gunpowder Plot

The 245th Anniversary

of the Bermuda Gunpowder Plot

May 13th-18th 2020


In the summer of 1775, the American Colonies are in revolt and the British have responded to the growing crisis in the colonies with a blockade of American ports. The blockade hurt Bermuda as the islands already had a shortage of food, putting the islanders at risk of starvation. Bermudians were divided and while most of the island’s population remained loyal the English Crown, there were many who sympathized with the Continental Congress and its fight for independence.

Galvez Day

Commemorating the longest siege of the American Revolution, the 1781 Battle of Pensacola

The Siege and Victory at Pensacola is recognized as a major battle in support of the United States' struggle for independence from Great Britain. While no American units were involved, the victory completed a series of victories by Spanish units under the command of General Bernardo de Galvez which eliminated British military control of the lower Mississippi Rivers and Gulf Coast. That loss of control was a significant factor in Great Britain ceding the land between the Mississippi River and the Appalachian Mountains to the United States and the colonies of East and West Florida to Spain as part of the 1783 Peace Treaty.

Crossing of the Dan - 239th Commemoration

The Crossing of the Dan, a nearly forgotten episode of the American Revolution that occurred at South Boston, Virginia, in 1781, received recognition in September 2013 by the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution as a major historic event.  This action has catapulted what was previously a local commemoration to a national event.

Saturday’s program on February 15th will feature music and songs from the period of the American Revolution by David Russell, wreath presentation ceremony, an encampment on the Dan River, and a re-enactment of The Crossing, weather permitting.

2019 Atlantic Middle States Association Conference

August 9-11, 2019

Dear Compatriots and Guests:


On behalf of the Delaware Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, your hosts for the 2019 Atlantic Middle States Association Conference, I cordially welcome you to Delaware. We are delighted and honored to have the President General and most of the national officers with us. The Delaware Society hopes it has taken advantage of every opportunity to enable you to enjoy the conference and "The First State." While you are with us in Delaware, we invite you to take a moment to explore Delaware's rich history, pristine beaches, and of course our tax-free shopping.

As you will see from the agenda included in your registration package, the Delaware Society, in conjunction with Vice Presidents General Sutton and Goebel, has planned an exciting and informative program.

The Hilton Christiana/Wilmington is conveniently located to a number of other attractions in Delaware and southeastern Pennsylvania, including the Brandywine River Museum (Wyeth family and American artwork), Longwood Gardens (Pierre S. DuPont's home and gardens), The Hagley Museum (E.I. DuPont's gunpowder works), Nemours Mansion & Gardens (A.I. DuPont's home), Winterthur Museum, the Delaware Art Museum and Fort Delaware (a Civil War era fort constructed in the middle of the Delaware River).

In addition to the Brandywine Battlefield, for those interested, Elkton, Cooch's Bridge, Paoli, Philadelphia, Germantown, Valley Forge, and many other sites connected to the British Philadelphia Campaign of 1777-1778, are within easy reach. The colonial city of New Castle, first capital of Delaware and "The Williamsburg of the North" is only twenty minutes away. The nearby city of Wilmington - founded as a Swedish colony in 1638 - contains sites commemorating the first Swedish settlement (Fort Christina State Park on E. 7th Street, including a replica of the ship Kalmar Nyckel) and French assistance during the American Revolution (the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route and the Wilmington Opera House).

We truly hope that you enjoy your time in Delaware and experience everything this Small Wonder has to offer.

Patriotically,

Harry B. Roberts, III

The 2019 SAR Annual Conference on the American Revolution
Women Waging War in the American Revolution

June 14-16, 2019

Mary Silliman wrote in 1776 that she had “acted the heroine as well as my dear Husband [General Gold Selleck Silliman, Connecticut militia] the hero.” Not all women (or men) acted heroically in the war, but they did act, not just react, and their agency informs this conference. How did women fight the Revolution – fight for it, fight against it, and fight in it? This conference intends to examine women warriors, followers, and activists from many perspectives – American and British, Patriot and Loyalist, free and enslaved. This conference will examine the words, actions, and influence of women in the War for American Independence.

Women Waging War in the American Revolution will be chaired by Holly A. Mayer, Associate Professor of History at Duquesne University and the 2019 SAR Distinguished Scholar

The Crossing of the Dan, a nearly forgotten episode of the American Revolution that occurred at South Boston, Virginia, in 1781, received recognition in September 2013 by the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution as a major historic event.  This action has catapulted what was previously a local commemoration to a national event.

The Dan River Chapter, Virginia Society Sons of the American Revolution, Berryman Green Chapter, Virginia Daughters of the American Revolution, Halifax County Historical Society, and the Town of South Boston are hosting the 238th Anniversary Commemoration of the Crossing of the Dan in historic downtown South Boston, Virginia.  The commemorative events are scheduled for February 16, 2019. 

Centered around The Prizery, where the Crossing of the Dan Exhibit is open to the public. Saturday’s program on February 16th will feature a speaker, Dr. Carole W. Troxler, speaking on " The Loyalists in the Back County ", wreath presentation ceremony, an encampment on the Dan River, and a re-enactment of The Crossing, weather permitting.

The Battle of Moores Creek Bridge- February 27, 1776

The Battle of Moores Creek Bridge, fought between North Carolina Patriot and Loyalist militia forces, demonstrates the bitter internal divisions that marked the American Revolution. The Loyalist, mostly Scottish Highlanders wielding broadswords, charged across a partially dismantled Moores Creek Bridge, nearly a thousand North Carolina Patriots waited quietly with cannons and muskets poised to fire. Expecting to find only a small Patriot force, the Loyalist advanced across the bridge. Shots rang out and 30 to 70 Loyalist lay wounded or dead, including Lt. Col. Donald McLeod, who led the charge. Stunned, outgunned, and leaderless, some of the Loyalist surrendered, while others retreated in confusion.

Moores Creek is the site of the first Patriot victory in the American Revolution and the site of the last Scottish Highland broadsword charge. The victory ended British authority in the colony and stalled a full-scale British invasion of the South for nearly four years. The resulting Halifax Resolves of April 12, 1776, instructed North Carolina’s delegates the Continental Congress to vote for independence; it was the first American colony to take such action.

The 2017 SAR Annual Conference on the American Revolution

The Adams Family
and the American Revolution

June 9-11, 2017

2017 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of John Quincy Adams.


John Adams famously wrote “I must study Politicks and War that my sons may have liberty to study Mathematicks and Philosophy. My sons ought to study Mathematicks and Philosophy … in order to give their Children a right to study Painting, Poetry, Musick.” The comment seems to describe the story of the family in the generations from John to Henry Adams. Yet the Adamses, whatever else they did, were political men and women. In 1821, an aging John Adams wrote his grandson George Washington Adams, an aspiring poet, that he must study politics, for “without some knowledge of it you will be always in confusion, blown about by every wind.” Politics were central to the story of the Adams family from the start, and at the foundation of the family’s politics was the American Revolution, a revolution that would create an American republic. With that in mind, the 2017 SAR Annual Conference proposes to explore the Adams family’s understanding of the nature, meaning, and significance of the American Revolution over the generations from John and Abigail to Henry and Brooks Adams. It will focus on the way their understanding of the American Revolution shaped their writings and their works from the Writs of Assistance Case in 1761 to Henry Adams’ death in the early 20th Century.

Please join us as the 2017 SAR Annual Conference on the American Revolution considers

Major Reading Blount Grave Marking Ceremony

A Grave Marking Ceremony will be held in Pitt County, NC, on October 22nd at 11 AM at the Bellefont Plantation, 275 Robersonville Road, Washington, NC

An RSVP is available at www.ncssargeorgewashington.org/GGWC/Major_Reading_Blount_grave_marking.pdf

Major Reading Blount (22 Feb 1757 – 12 Oct 1807) was an officer in the Continental Army. After news came of Lexington and Concord in 1776, the North Carolina assembly met in Hillsborough and divided the state into military districts. Reading Blount, who was then nineteen and had as his only previous military experience drilling with the local militia, was commissioned a captain in the Third North Carolina Regiment on 16 Apr. 1776. Captain Blount became a major on 12 May 1778. In June of that year he was transferred to the Fifth North Carolina Continental Line. On 1 Jan. 1781, he was again transferred, this time to the First Continental Line. He served for nearly seven years. At the Battle of Guilford Court House on 15 Mar. 1781, Blount was cited for bravery. Again at the Battle of Eutaw Springs, on 8 Sept. 1781, was recognized by General Nathanael Greene for bravery beyond the call of duty.

Patriot Isaac Carter Chapter NC SAR Chartering Ceremony

The NCSSAR will be chartering its newest chapter on September 3, 2016.  This will be an historic event because the Patriot Isaac Carter Chapter will be the SAR’s first predominantly African-American chapter and its first chapter to be named after an African-American Patriot!


Patriot Isaac Carter Chapter Chartering Ceremony – RSVP Enclosure

We know that you will want to be with us to celebrate this historic event, but space will be limited.  Also, remember that this will be Labor Day Weekend and Havelock is only a half-hour from North Carolina’s Crystal Coast, so motel rooms will also be in short supply — so reserve your seats and motel rooms early!


Tickets are $25 and include a buffet  supper of Good Ole Eastern Carolina Pork BBQ and Fried Chicken with all  the fixings (cole slaw, potato salad, hushpuppies, banana pudding, pecan pie, and iced tea)!   

Any questions, please contact Guy Higgins at guyhiggins@gmail.com or call 252.327.7752.
