As a Chapter, we our proud of our nation's Independence and the living and past Patriots who have made it their mission to continue to keep our Freedoms alive such as Dr. John King Beck Emory Seegar Jr who was our past NSSAR Surgeon General, Carl Francis Bessett, our past NSSAR President General, and many of our Past MDSSAR State Presidents Earl McCoy Altizer, Lester Anderson Foster Jr., Charles Bailey Slaughter, Christos Christou Jr., Ivan Virgil Dooley, Jr., Edward Addison Foreman Jr. And especially for our first Black Chapter President Jean Schloss Fugett Sr. and his son and grandson who became the first 3 generations in the NSSAR to hold the title of President - Jean Schloss Fugett Jr, Reginald James Fugett and Joseph Russell Fugett. The Annual Fugett award honors his memory of the work he did in the NSA code breaking during the Cold War that continues to keep our nation free. We thank these and all the other unnamed Patriots to this day that keep American Independence alive.

We celebrate Independence Day to remind us of the heroic founding fathers. They came together despite their differences and created a nation that has survived until this day. Men like Col. John Eager Howard served along side free men of color in the Flying Camp in 1776. He fought at many battles and was so badly wounded at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse that he was sent to recover for over a year in a hospital in Philadelphia. He wrote the most comprehensive description of the Battle of Germantown that is still used today for its accuracy. His public dealings and transactions show a man of character and honesty. We are grateful for the great documents of our history but for the men and women who in that time and those who continue today to keep our freedoms and liberties strong.

God Bless America on her 245th Birthday.

Our Chapter is named after one of the great heroes of the Revolution. In the famous painting of Washington by Trumbull hanging in the Capitol, Col. Howard is 5th behind him in the portrait. He is honored with the words "Remember Howard's Warlike Thrust" in the Maryland State Song. Much has been written about career - 3 time Governor of Maryland, Justice, Lt. Col. of the Revolution, his near death wounding at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, his almost certain death at the Battle of Cowpens, etc. but few have written about his personal life and the support he gave to many of the poor in Baltimore City, his fair dealings with all he encountered, his reputation for honesty and accuracy. The list of his accolades are long and yet he is just one of the many who sacrificed so much or our freedoms. We honor all of them today with the continued celebration of our Independence Day.

Happy 245th Birthday U.S.A.

This is the type of propaganda that causes people to think they must stop saying the U.S. Pledge and tear down the lessons of the past. The pledge unites us as a nation.

Proverbs 23:10 Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless.

When Francis Bellamy wrote the Pledge of Allegiance in 1892, the oath was steeped in nativist impulses. He sought to define "true Americanism" against the rising tide of southern and eastern European immigrants "pouring over our country." From its anti-immigrant origins to the Nazi-esque salute children used to make while saying it, this is the dark history of the Pledge of Allegiance that schoolchildren who say it each morning will never find in their history books: https://bit.ly/2voAQo9

The Marquis de Lafayette passed away on May 20, 1834 at the age of 76. He has been the great champion of freedom for America, France and for the enslaved. His memory should be honored around the world. After his 1824 return visit, many U.S. cities were renamed in his honor.

Baltimore City erected a great equestrian statue in his honor on Charles Street. The groundbreaking of the Lafayette statue in Baltimore took place on May 14, 1917, just weeks after the United States entered World War I. The Mount Vernon Place Conservancy hosted a Centennial commemoration of the groundbreaking for the Lafayette statue on May 16, 2017.
