  • Battle of Great Bridge
    11:00 AM-12:00 PM
    December 08, 2018

    109 N Battlefield Blvd, Chesapeake, VA 23320, USA

    109 N Battlefield Blvd, Chesapeake, VA 23320, USA

     Commemoration of the Battle of Great Bridge

    This year the entire commemoration will take place on Saturday, December 2, 2017 only. (There will be no Friday evening reception as in the past.)

    The formal NSSAR Commemoration of the Battle of Great Bridge will start at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, December 08, 2018, in Great Bridge Battlefield Park, Chesapeake, VA. Dr. Phil Hamilton of Christopher Newport University, will speak on the history of the Battle of Great Bridge and Its Pivotal Importance. The ceremony will include the 64th annual wreath laying led by Great Bridge Chapter N.S.D.A.R. The formal ceremonies will conclude by noon.

    Norfolk Chapter SAR will host a luncheon immediately after the ceremony at Vino’s Italian Restaurant (located just across the bridge on Battlefield Boulevard – same location as last year). Food and drink will be “Dutch treat.” We are planning on at least 50 attending. There will be no speaker but it will be a time of good fellowship.

    Additional Information:
    On Saturday afternoon, all compatriots are encouraged to visit the colorful re-enactment of the battle and the re-enactor encampment on Saturday afternoon. Docents will be available for tours of Great Bridge Battlefield Park and the reenactment site all day Saturday and Sunday. Participants may also visit the Norfolk Chapter information/recruitment booth at the reenactment site.

    Those chapters wishing to participate in the laying of wreaths and wish to have their chapter and representative recognized in the program brochure must provide that information to me at drklhawkins@gmail.com NLT 24 October, 2018.

    The new visitors’ center is now 74% complete. It is anticipated that it will be finished in time to use the facility in the event of inclement weather.

    However, should the building not be available and the weather not suitable for an outdoor ceremony, we will be using the Chesapeake City Council Chambers located at City Hall located at 306 Cedar Rd., Chesapeake, VA. If this facility is used, we may be able to have the event televised.

    Hotel Reservations:

    The Founders Inn and Spa will host our group.  The hotel address is 5641 Indian River Rd., Virginia Beach, VA 23464.  Please be sure to book prior to 11/7 to receive the special group rate of $89.00 (std. colonial queen) or $99.00 (std. colonial double) per room per night + tax.

    Please call the hotel toll-free at 1-757-366-5700 and ask for the Sons of the American Revolution Group. Should you experience any difficulty with your reservation, contact Cindy Crawford, Sales Manager, at 757-366-5748

    We will also plan on an informal “Dutch treat” dinner with the PG at the Founders Inn on 7 December open to anyone that wants to join us. Social gathering at 6:00 pm followed by dinner at 6:30 pm.

    Medals. A SAR medal commemorating the Battle of Great Bridge will be available for purchase by all compatriots attending.
