Revolutionary Grave Program

 

Brass Patriot Grave Marker

Revolutionary Patriot
Grave Marker

The Fairfax Resolves Chapter sponsors and attends grave marking ceremonies to recognize the contributions made by our patriot ancestors. Marking ceremonies include a brief talk on the life and times of the Patriot as well as a commemorative wreath laying.

  

The National Society sells brass markers which can be placed at the graves of Revolutionary Patriots, a visible symbol to the public that the person buried at that place aided in the American Revolution.
