Six 1812 Veteran Brothers Honored at Historic Christ Church in Lancaster County on March 27, 2010

Our Virginia Society contributed $300 toward the cost of this plaque placed at the entranceway to  the church. Notice at the bottom is our society name for folks to see for a long time. Our colors were carried at a luncheon that preceded the ceremony. Attending was President Hartman who laid a wreath, and Colonel Andrew Johnson, Deputy President General of the Chesapeake-Potomac District of the General Society War of 1812, who also laid a wreath. Mike Lyman, Bill Nash and Dr William Nichols of our Society also attended. Our Star Spangled Banner flag was carried by President Hartman. An article mentioning our society was in the local paper preceding and following the event as well as an article in the Northern Neck Historical Society newsletter. An interesting aspect is that the six 1812 militiamen were all brothers and the sons of a Revolutionary War patriot who was also honored.
