Daughters Of The American Revolution Participate In Red Clay Pow Wow

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

What started out as a Nancy Ward Chapter of the DAR project blossomed into a five chapter DAR project at the Tribal Pow Wow at Red Clay State Park.  

The chapters involved were Nancy Ward, Chickamauga, Chief John Ross, Judge David Campbell and Moccasin Bend.  

The Brainerd Mission Cemetery, which is owned by the five chapters and the John Sevier Chapter of the SAR, was featured with a pictorial display and handouts for the public. All five chapters had information and handouts about the individual chapters.  Nancy Ward and Chief John Ross had posters and information on their place in history during the Revolutionary War for Nancy Ward and the Trail of Tears for Chief John Ross. 

The tent was manned by ladies from each chapter throughout the weekend . They were there to answer questions and to hand out bottled water and popcorn which Cleveland Carmike theater provided.
