Welcome to the website for the Stephen Holston Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution.  Within this site you will find information on  how to join, about our meetings,  our community involvement, youth scholarship opportunities, the histories of our local Revolutinary War Veterans, and much more.  We hope that you enjoy the site, and your feedback is most important to us!

Our Mission:

Perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men and women who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions, including the stories of those brave men and women who came to this Tennessee wilderness with little more than their raw grit and determination and proceeded to claw out a gracious society of which WE are the recipients.

Our Next Event:

"The Gathering" at Sycamore Shoals
September 17th, 2016 – 10 am EST
1651 W. Elk Avenue - Elizabethton, Tennessee
