Near the entrance to Mt. Hope Cemetery is a bronze plaque erected in 1959 by the Daughters of the American Revolution which bears the names of patriots who were thought to have all lived in Lumpkin County. Historical Society President Chris Worick, has been researching  the names of these veterans as well as others he has discovered in an effort to separate fact from folklore.  His presentation will discuss the results of his findings as well as brief biographies of many of the veteran's service records.

The public is invited to attend. Feel free to share the Zoom link above.
