    President’s Day Community Dinner

    With Theodore Roosevelt Jr.!

    The Mecklenburg chapter will welcome our 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt Jr., as our special 8th Annual President’s Day Community Dinner guest on February 20, 2020 in Charlotte, NC at the Hilton Charlotte Executive Park Hotel.

    Doors open at 6:00pm and the event begins at 6:30pm. Bring your cameras!

    Mr. Roosevelt was the driving force for the Progressive Era in the United States in the early 20th century. His accomplishments in public life were many, including making conservation a top priority and establishing many new national parks, forests and monuments.

    In his foreign policy, he focused on Central America where he began the construction of the Panama Canal and he sent the US Navy on a world tour, called the Great White Fleet, to project the US naval power around the globe.

    His face is depicted on Mount Rushmore alongside George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln, all presidents we have had as guest speakers at previous President’s Day Events! Historical actor Bill Rose portrays Mr. Roosevelt with much acclaim from his performances from across the country.

    Tickets are $37.25 for adults and $19 for children and are on sale via PayPal on our chapter website.

    You can also download the RSVP to mail in your checks.

    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.

    250th Anniversary of the American Revolution Sestercentennial Commemoration

    The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution has challenged every SAR Chapter to recognize those events that led to the American Revolution, as well as those events which occurred during the Revolution. Each SAR Chapter will hold public venues to educate, recognize, honor, and celebrate the events and heroes of the period surrounding the American Revolution. These events will be significant events related directly to acts of resistance to British attempts to coerce the residents in America from the first Parliamentary Acts, through the armed struggle, until the Treaty of Paris.Catawba Valley Chapter North Carolina SAR honors the Gold Hill Riot in New York.

    In accordance with this directive, the Catawba Valley Chapter will commemorate the January 19, 1770, Golden Hill Riot in New York. Most would not be familiar with what happened here just over 250 years ago. But it is one of the first significant acts of the Patriots against the British.

    Soon we will be commemorating the Boston Massacre.

    Please join us at the Frank and Sue Jones Amphitheatre off the Historic Courthouse Square in Newton, NC, at 12 noon, Saturday, February 29.

    Chapter President Ben Setser will enlighten us as to what happened in Yonkers, NY, on this day. We will invite every attending Chapter of the SAR and DAR to add what they know of this small battle or riot. The Frank and Sue Jones Amphitheater is located on the west side of the 1924 Courthouse Square on Main Avenue in downtown Newton, NC.

    SAR and Partners in Patriotism will be eligible for award points for attending or wearing Period Clothing or Uniforms. Award points lead to Bronze, Silver and Gold Medals.

    We will need a full Color Guard with no Wreath Laying Ceremony.
