At the 10th hour of the 10th day of of the 10th month in the year of our Lord Two thousand and twenty, we remembered the Battle at Point Pleasant, Virginia (now West Virginia). Many SAR State Societies stood up to honor and remember the Patriots that fought and sacrificed to achieve victory on this day in history–Monday, 10 October 1774.
Unlike past days of remembrance we were driven this year to honor our National History in a hybrid ceremony of remembrance in virtual reality and actual circumstance. The ceremonials were led by President of the Point Pleasant Chapter, Ed Cromley. the SAR State Societies of Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee were present along with numerous SAR, DAR & CAR Chapters from the aforementioned state societies.
The writer of this article, having participated virtually, cannot provide photos of the event. However at least three officers of the Ohio Society Chapters were represented:
Ohio Society – Ohio Society President, Lee Wilkerson
Cincinnati Chapter – Committee Chairman, Bob Bowers
Lt. George Ewing Chapter – Chapter President, Scott Moody
