Fourth Quarter Meeting
Please save the date
Members and invited guests are invited to join us for our Fourth Quarter Meeting held on December 10th, 2023 at 11:30 am at the South Hills Country Club.
A business meeting will be conducted followed by a special presentation from author Tom McMillan. As a lifelong student of history, Mr. McMillan has served on the board of trustees of Pittsburgh’s Heinz History Center, the board of directors of the Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial, and the marketing committee of the Gettysburg Foundation.
Mr. McMillan will discuss his new book, Our Flag Was Still There, which details the improbable two-hundred-year journey of the original Star-Spangled Banner—from Fort McHenry in 1814, when Francis Scott Key first saw it, to the Smithsonian in 2023—and the enduring family who defended, kept, hid, and ultimately donated the most famous flag in American history.
National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR or SAR) was founded in 1889 and is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky.
SAR is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and promoting education to our future generations. SAR members volunteer untold hours of service each year in their local communities. SAR is very active in supporting active-duty military personnel and assisting veterans as well. We proudly assist classrooms with living history interpreters, lesson planning materials and reenactment events for school-aged youth to attend.

"For me, SAR is a unique group of kindred men whose forefathers fought for the dream of freedom still benefiting every American."
