As a chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, we strive to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. We accomplish the objectives of our society, by actively assisting, participating, and hosting events within our area. Below are just a few of the ways we further our cause.
The Hobkirk Hill Chapter NSDAR is fortunate to be located in an area of many important historical events. We have three sites in the county where significant events took place during the American Revolutionary War. These sites are: the residence of Lord Cornwallis, the Battle of Camden, and our namesake Battle of Hobkirk’s Hill. The list goes on to include many other sites, graves, and monuments too numerous to mention.
Our area also had many other historical avenues to explore such as our Native American history, the colonial period, Robert Mills’ architecture, the Angel of Saint Marye’s Heights grave and a passion for steeplechase racing.
As a chapter, we strive to enhance our local history by saving, preserving, and volunteering to ensure that history is not forgotten.
We know the best way to preserve our history and learn from success and failure is to pursue knowledge. To further our task of spreading knowledge throughout the community, we provide many services to young and old by providing literacy programs, volunteering for school days at Historic Camden, and providing scholarships to our local youth to help with their future educational needs.
Our forefathers and mothers fought hard and sacrificed their lives to ensure that we would have better life. Patriotism is at the heart of our chapter. We strive to promote our great country by volunteering for patriotic events, promoting the Constitution, attending wreath laying events, assisting veterans with their needs and keeping relationships with the many military bases in our area.
