    May Chapter Dinner Meeting!

    North Carolina State Representative Craig Horn, District 68, will join us for an exciting evening and presentation on how the character and foresight of three Great Leaders in 3 different centuries are tied together.

    Our founding documents are not only the foundation of this Great Nation but are also the guideposts that direct our future. In his presentation entitled “The Ties That Bind,” Rep. Horn provides an insight into how we have honored and can continue to honor the legacy of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Winston Churchill.

    Rep. Horn is a former Russian linguist with the USAF Security Service and a retired food broker and businessman. Elected in 2010, Craig is now serving his fourth term in the NC General Assembly representing District 68, Western Union County.

    Buford’s Crossroads 9 Miles East of Lancaster, SC

    On May 25, 2019, The National Society, The South Carolina Society, and The General Francis Marion Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution will host the 239th Commemoration of the Battle of Waxhaws, better known as Buford’s Massacre, at the Battle Site near Buford’s Crossroads about nine miles east of Lancaster, South Carolina. The event will begin at 10:30 A.M. with a formal wreath-laying ceremony and guest speakers. Many guests will don period dress, including Continental and Militia attire. The story of Buford’s Massacre will be told as the bravery of the Patriots is commemorated and the fallen are honored.

    Colonel Abraham Buford was the commander of a Virginia Regiment of infantry and a company of artillery comprised of approximately 300 men. Two hundred thirty-nine years ago, on May 29, 1780, British Lieutenant Colonel Banastre Tarleton pursued Colonel Buford from Nelson’s Ferry to Buford near the Waxhaws District. Colonel Buford attempted to surrender, but a bloody massacre ensued with American casualties numbering 113 against a handful of British fatalities. Even more were taken prisoner, and 150 of the 187 prisoners were wounded. Tarleton became known as “Bloody Ban,” and “Tarleton’s Quarter!” became a rallying battle cry for Southern Patriots until the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown.
