Sons of the American Revolution Records (MC 312)

Organizational Note

According to information published in the program of its first meeting, the Coweta Falls Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) was chartered on the 23rd of October, 1976.  Before the granting of the charter there had been several months of discussion among interested men at both Fort Benning and the Bradley Library.  In January of 1976 temporary officers were named pending the formal establishment of the chapter.  In May of that year a Letter of Intent was presented at the annual meeting of the Georgia SAR in Atlanta.  This led to the charter being granted at the first official meeting of the Coweta Falls Chapter, held on October 23, 1976.

Scope and Content

Among the missions of the Sons of the American Revolution were to keep alive the history and memory of Revolutionary War participants, to support American ideals, to educate the young with such things as annual essay and poster contests, to mark and restore the graves of Revolutionary soldiers, to observe such events as Veterans Day, Flay Day, Constitution Week, the anniversaries of Revolutionary battles (such as Kettle Creek) and local naturalization ceremonies to welcome new citizens.  The chapter also had monthly meetings with speakers and presentations, and an annual Christmas banquet.
