VIS Approval 2016

Welcome!

Welcome to the Colonel Frederick Hambright Chapter website. If you are seeking a National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) chapter near Gastonia or Charlotte, North Carolina, we hope the information found here will prove helpful. Please contact us if you would like to visit one of our meetings or have any questions about DAR membership.

Colonel Frederick Hambright led the "South Fork Boys" into battle and played key roles in winning America's Independence.

Kings Mountain, North Carolina, takes its name from the Kings Mountain National Military Park located eight miles south of the city. On October 7, 1780, American patriots fought and killed Major Patrick Ferguson in a battle lasting a little more than an hour. Many consider this battle to be the turning point of the Revolutionary War. Our DAR chapter is closely associated with this battlefield and hosts the Overmountain Men reenactment each year on October 7 to commemorate the event.

The Colonel Frederick Hambright Chapter was formed on February 18, 1916, in the home of Ida Pauline Mauney Neisler in Kings Mountain, North Carolina. We will celebrate our chapter's centennial anniversary on December 27, 2016.
