Listed here are the patriot names, state of service, and rank for the members' ancestors of the Elizabeth Campbell Russell Chapter NSDAR (from previous to current members). Our chapter will forever be indebted to these and other patriots for their unyielding sacrifice and their commitment to the cause of American independence.
As we remember their sacrifice, let us also remember the words of George Washington as he too acknowledged the sacrifice and what he was asking of these great patriots, while at the same time, encouraging his men to re-enlist to help ensure a victory in the fight for freedom ...
"My brave fellows, you have done all I asked you to do, and more than can be reasonably expected; but your country is at stake, your wives, your houses and all that you hold dear. You have worn yourselves out with fatigues and hardships, but we know not how to spare you. If you will consent to stay one month longer, you will render that service to the cause of liberty, and to your country, which you probably can never do under any other circumstances." WASHINGTON, ENCOURAGING HIS MEN TO RE-ENLIST IN THE ARMY, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1776.
