We will also be inducting new members. A Flag award certificate and cased flag will be presented to Kenneth Fisher.
Please join us and invited dignitaries at a reception for the unveiling and and welcome home of our treasurered War of 1812 relic, the cavalry jacket of Sgt. Jacob Huyett, in time for its 200th anniversary at the Battle of North Point in 1814, on Friday, September 5, 2014 at the Miller House Museum, 135 West Washington Street, Hagerstown, MD from 5 to 7 pm.
Ft. McHenry has reported that the two new cannons ordered by the MD Society War of the 1812 are scheduled to arrive on Monday! The firing of the guns will be on Thursday. Plan to come around 1:40pm for a private showing and firing. We will walk up to the gun deck and the Daughter and Son will be fired. Should literally be a blast.
Please come join us for this event. It has been your donations that made this possible and these cannons will long outlast us.

As chairman of the MDSSAR’s CAR/DAR/SAR Committee I am pleased to report that both the Maryland DAR and CAR are very active. You recently received from me the DAR’s newsletter and here is the CAR version – see the link below. The CAR in Maryland receives the majority of its senior support from the Maryland DAR, and it needs our SAR support. Unfortunately, except for Christos and King, it receives very little real-time assistance from us men. Please get involved if you are able. You can see me for more information since I am also the senior chairman of the CAR’s SAR Liaison Committee.
