The Gen. William Lee Davidson Chapter
Welcome to the General William Lee Davidson chapter website. William Lee Davidson was an officer in the North Carolina militia and Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. He was killed on February 1, 1781, at the Battle of Cowan's Ford. The town and college of Davidson are named after him.
The Sons of the Revolution
The Sons of the Revolution was organized in New York on December 18, 1875, primarily by leading members of the Society of the Cincinnati (founded by George Washington and Henry Knox) in order to broaden participation in preserving the American Heritage.
The Society of the Sons of the Revolution has been instituted to perpetuate the memory of the men who, in the military, naval and civil service of the colonies and of the Continental Congress, by their acts or counsel, achieved the Independence of the country, and to the proper celebration of the anniversaries of the birthday of Washington, and of prominent events connected with the War of the Revolution.
