237th Anniversary of the Battle of Cowan's Ford
**SAR NATIONAL EVENT!**
The Mecklenburg chapter and the North Carolina SAR invite you to attend the 237th Anniversary of the historic Battle of Cowan's Ford held at Hopewell Presbyterian Church in Huntersville, NC. Our traditional "biscuit and coffee" breakfast begins at 9:00am with the actual ceremony beginning at 10:00am inside the church. Following a brief indoors ceremony, we move outside at the new SAR historical marker to honor the Patriots buried at Hopewell Presbyterian, including Gen. William Lee Davidson, who was killed at the battle.
**New This Year!**
You will drop off your wreaths outside with the Boy Scouts at the cemetery. Then you will park and walk inside the Gymnasium (look for signs) to register your wreath, drink hot coffee and eat biscuits.
Our speaker this year is Steve Lundeen, Sr. Instructor and Shoot Boss, with Project Appleseed. Project Appleseed is a non-partisan group of men and women (known as the Revolutionary War Veterans Association) who are committed to upholding the values and principles of America’s founding fathers. Steve will deliver an emotional and engaging message to all attendees!
