33 Patriots is coming November 9-10, 2018 to Mooresville, NC from the Mecklenburg chapter SAR.

Centre Presbyterian Church in Mooresville, NC, is one of the original five churches of the area between Salisbury, NC, and Charlotte, NC; it was centrally located, hence its name. "33 Patriots" are known from this congregation for their ardent service in the Revolutionary War and buried in the church cemetery. Only one has been marked by the SAR.

These Patriots participated in area battles like Kings Mountain, Cowpens, Cowan's Ford, Ramsour's Mill, Torrance Tavern, Colson's Mill and Guilford Court House. Major campaigns here in our area.

As a part of the mission of our society, would like to honor these 33 Patriots with a SAR grave marker, a large stone monument with their names engraved, and a lighted flag pole with the American Flag and the Betsy Ross flag at Centre Presbyterian Church on November 10, 2018.

We will hold a formal "33 Patriots" dinner and gala the evening before on November 9, 2018, at Trump National Golf Course Charlotte. We are inviting major and key VIP's to attend both ceremonies. This weekend will be Veterans Day weekend, the 100th anniversary of the WWI Armistice and the single largest grave marking of Revolutionary War Patriots at one time in the history of America.
