The drums beat, the fifers played and the flags unfurled at Historic Locust Grove on Saturday June 27, 2015. As part of the 125th Congress visitors were given choices of events to attend over the weekend. And about 150 of the National members and their wives choose this ceremony at Locust Grove.
Members of many of the Kentucky Chapters carried the various revolutionary era flags onto the field and members of the Kentucky militia fired a 21 gun salute in a coordinated firing with an 18th century replica cannon provided by The Painted Stone Settlers of Shelbyville, KY.
Throughout the weekend members could choose various tours throughout the city. The Kentucky Derby Museum, The Imax theater at The Louisville Science Center, The Kentucky Show at the Kentucky Center for Performing Arts were just a few of the options for the visiting SAR members.
