S. 1316

A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO CONGRATULATE THE DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, MT. ARIEL CHAPTER, AT THE DEDICATION OF ITS AMERICA 250 PATRIOTS MARKER AND TO SALUTE THE DAR CHAPTER ON ITS NEW PROGRAM TO COMMEMORATE AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY WAR PATRIOTS IN CONJUNCTION WITH OUR NATION'S TWO HUNDRED FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION IN 2026.

Whereas, the South Carolina General Assembly is pleased to learn that the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), Mt. Ariel Chapter, will be dedicating its America 250 Patriots marker on Tuesday, May 24, 2022. The ceremony will take place at Greenville Presbyterian Church in Donalds, where the marker has already been erected by the gate of the church cemetery, just outside the fence. Fittingly, the marker honors thirty Revolutionary War patriots; and

Whereas, the dedication is part of the new DAR America 250 Patriots Marker project, created to raise awareness of the courage and sacrifice of the patriots who won America's independence, as well as to honor the memory of these committed men and women, with whom we have a sacred compact to ensure that these United States of America continue as a government of the people, by the people, and for the people; and

Whereas, the text of the marker reads as follows:

Revolutionary War Patriots

This marker commemorates the

men and women who achieved

American independence.

These patriots, believing in the

noble cause of liberty, fought

valiantly to found a new nation.

1775-1783

Presented by

Mt. Ariel Chapter

Daughters of the American Revolution

in honor of the 250th anniversary of the United States; and

Whereas, states, chapters, clubs, and individuals are encouraged to purchase and erect the standardized bronze markers, which will be customized with the name of the sponsoring entity. The goal is to place at least one marker in every state, in advance and in celebration of the nation's approaching two hundred fiftieth anniversary. The plaques may be placed indoors or out and may be installed in parks, cemeteries, town squares, schools, municipal buildings, historic sites, and private properties visible from a public street; and

Whereas, this coast-to-coast network of markers will become a source of pride for local communities and will remind all who view them of the importance of emulating our American Revolutionary patriots in their conviction, courage, and cooperation toward national unity. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:

That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, congratulate the Daughters of the American Revolution, Mt. Ariel Chapter, at the dedication of its America 250 Patriots marker and salute the DAR chapter on its new program to commemorate American Revolutionary War patriots in conjunction with our nation's two hundred fiftieth anniversary celebration in 2026.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the Daughters of the American Revolution, Mt. Ariel Chapter.
