A gathering to kick off our fall season of events, our work in chapter development, our celebration of Yorktown, and plans for the forthcoming nominations and annual meeting. More information will be available as the date of the meeting approaches.
The Battle of Yorktown in 1781 was a decisive victory by combined assault of American forces led by General George Washington and French forces led by General Comte de Rochambeau over a British Army commanded by General Lord Cornwallis. It proved to be the last major land battle of the American Revolutionary War.
Each year in October the society gathers at a historic site within the state as selected by the officers of the chapters with our Board of Managers. As with our event for Patriot’s day, this celebration begins with the marking of a patriot’s grave and proceeds with a guided tour of the site, a banquet, and lecture. Celebrations have occurred at Historic Deerfield, Plymouth Plantation, the Museum of our National Heritage, and Sturbridge Village.
Plans for the celebration in October are being developed. Please visit this page again as the date approaches for more information on the occations.
