Service to Veterans
The Lt. Andrew Crockett Chapter is dedicated to serving veterans. We want to thank Rob Harding for his work as the chapter's Service to Veterans chairman.
The Lt. Andrew Crockett Chapter, established in 2001, was named after Revolutionary War Patriot Lt. Andrew Crockett. Andrew served in the Virginia Militia during the American Revolution and was a renowned master gunsmith. He made "Long Rifles" which his cousins and neighbors used with such deadly accuracy at King's Mountain, New Orleans and the Alamo.
He was awarded several significant land grants in Kentucky, Tennessee and Louisiana. Andrew and his brother James were among the ten such "first settlers" who chose their land in what is now Brentwood.
It is the founding mission of the Lieutenant Andrew Crockett Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution to research both the lives and the final resting places of these Patriots and share them with our fellow citizens. Our ultimate goal is to sensitize the broader community to the role these Patriots played in laying the very foundations of our rich heritage. In so doing, we hope to engender reverence for their contributions to our heritage.
The Lt. Andrew Crockett Chapter is active at the local, state and national levels and has opportunities for all members to fully participate.
