The Caroline Close Stuart Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) once again is laying wreaths on Veterans graves in the St. Charles County area.
One hundred years ago, the Missouri DAR surveyed the state and marked a number of the Revolutionary War graves. This year Chapter members will mark the graves of 14 Revolutionary War Patriots who came to Missouri after the war long before Missouri became a state. Those men include Bowles Abbington, Joseph Baugh, James Bryan, John Castilio, Warren Cottle, David Darst, Zachariah Moore, Samuel Wells and Jacob Zumwalt.
Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day Wreaths Across America and its national network of volunteers lay over 700,000 memorial wreaths at 1,000 locations in the United States and beyond.
