The Nancy Ward Chapter DAR members met in Brainerd Mission Cemetery for their monthly meeting with a unique program.  Members were seated underneath magnificent oak trees - with some dating back to 100 years of age.  Hamilton County Historian, Linda Moss Mines, presented historical information and displayed artifacts on Brainerd Mission Cemetery’s history, going back to the early 1800’s.

The Brainerd Mission Cemetery has an annual Flag Raising Ceremony each year in June, attended by members of the Tennessee Society Daughters of the American Revolution of the five chapters of Chattanooga DAR:  Chickamauga Chapter, John Ross Chapter, Judge David Campbell Chapter, Moccasin Bend Chapter and the Nancy Ward Chapter; and the John Sevier Chapter (Tennessee Society Sons of the American Revolution).  The public is always welcomed. The four flags on display are the United States of America Flag, the Tennessee State Flag, the Cherokee Western Band National Flag, and the Cherokee Eastern Band Flag.  The Cherokee flags are gifted each year by the Cherokee Nations.

The Nancy Ward Chapter welcomes prospective members who have lineage to ancestors who aided in the American Revolution.  For inquiries regarding community service in the areas of patriotism, education, or historic preservation, contact Nancywardchapter@gmail.com
