History of Our Chapter
The General Marion's Brigade Chapter was organized in 1999 in Moncks Corner, SC. We have sponsored the Junior American
Citizens, American History Essay Contests, Good Citizens Awards, and JROTC Medals. We have encouraged landowners to preserve
significant historical sites and helped to develop projects such as the Francis Marion Trail Commission. We strive
to educate ourselves about our local history so that we may do more in preserving it.
We are located in Berkeley County, the stomping grounds of the Swamp Fox, Brigadier General Francis Marion. We are the
local representative of the South Carolina Daughters of the American Revolution.

whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic, a sovereign nation of many sovereign
states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity
for which American patriots scarificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its constitution; to obey its laws;
to repect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies
