    Twelve Revolutionary Patriots to be Honored by CCSAR

    The Cincinnati Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (CCSAR) along with the City of Springdale, OH will be hosting a 18th Century Ceremony to honor 12 Patriots of the Revolutionary 2:30 PM in the Old St. Marys Cemetery at Route 4 and Cameron Road, just one block South of Northland Blvd, on Rte. 4 in Springdale, OH.

    CCSAR will bring their Nolan Carson Memorial Color Guard. They will post colors and present a musket salute with the bravado of the 18th Century, clad in the uniforms of those days.

    Community dignitaries and several descendants will be in attendance. These patriots who will be honored for the first time had been lost to history until the City of Springdale began their campaign to save the cemetery and the CCSARs Revolutionary War Sites and Patriot Graves Committee discovered the records of their burial here. These patriots will finally have their Revolutionary War service properly memorialized.

    We will dedicate a granite monument with the names of the twelve, five of whom have no other identification at the St Mary's site. There will be accompaniment to the prayers by a fifer, the bagpipes, a bugler and the mourning of the musket unit. And we are pleased to have located family of some of our honorees who will have come from as far away as Oklahoma to participate.

    We welcome the public to join us for this momentous occasion where we will honor these patriot ancestors who helped give us our freedom and liberties that we continue to enjoy in thes
