At 11:00am on Monday, February 19, join the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Sons of the American Revolution as they host colonial military and civilians to honor the soldiers of the Revolution at the Old Presbyterian Meeting House (321 S. Fairfax St., Alexandria, VA).
Included in the ceremony will be representatives of SARs and DARs around Virginia, and Rev. Tom Costa and Susan Costa will embody the roles of George Washington's minister, the Reverand and Mrs. Massey.
The inscription on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of the American Revolution reads:
“Here lies a soldier of the Revolution whose identity is known but to God. His was an idealism that recognized a Supreme Being, that planted religious liberty on our shores, that overthrew despotism, that established a people’s government, that wrote a Constitution setting metes and bounds of delegated authority, that fixed a standard of value upon men above gold and lifted high the torch of civil liberty along the pathway of mankind. In ourselves his soul exists as part of ours, his memory’s mansion."
