The speaker at the October meeting of the Nancy Ward Chapter of the DAR , Dr. Daryl Black, reinforced the theme of the Daughters of the American Revolution nationwide: Preserve the Past, Enhance the Present, Invest in the Future. 

The DAR membership is based on the bloodline connection to a Revolutionary War soldier or a citizen that gave aid and supplies to help the Revolution. Prospective members research their genealogy, looking for that connection through reams of paper that might hold a clue to their heritage.  

Dr. Daryl Black, executive director of the Chattanooga History Center, gave another perspective on the importance of ‘Preserving the Past.” The new History Center  deals with the actual objects of the ast.

The tools, clothing, toys, weapons, the list goes on, serve to give a different view of those people who came before us.  How the women of the household forged a home out of very little and the men worked to build this nation with hand tools and sweat.

Roy Exum: Our Insult To Israel

I am deeply saddened that over two dozen members of Congress – all Democrats – will be boycotting a speech by Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, when he speaks in Washington tonight. I am also offended that the President of the United States will not receive Netanyahu prior to the speech – a customary gesture on such occasions – because he claims it is too close to ...
