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.

The American's Creed

I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, and for the people; 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

Preamble to the U.S. Constitution
 
We the People of the United States , in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.
