What is Centre Patriots?

Our 242 year journey as the United States of America brings us to an unprecedented time to honor the Revolutionary War Patriots in their final resting place at historic Centre Presbyterian Church, 129 Centre Church Rd., Mooresville, NC 28117.

Centre Presbyterian Church is one of the "Seven Sisters" Presbyterian churches organized in and around Charlotte, NC, between 1756 and 1770. Centre Presbyterian Church has a long history of service in the Mooresville area and played an integral part in the founding of Davidson College.

One of the Church's greatest contributions, however, came during the Revolutionary War. General William Davidson, hero of the Battle of Cowan's Ford and the man from whom both Davidson College and Davidson, NC, get their names, was a member of the Centre Church congregation.

Within the Centre Church Cemetery, there are represented thirty-five men who left the comfort of their homes in order to secure the blessings of freedom that we enjoy today, a remarkable number for a small congregation in the Carolina backcountry.

The Mecklenburg Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution along with the congregation of Centre Presbyterian Church wish to honor the sacrifices of these brave patriots.

Centre Presbyterian Church Revolutionary War patriot monument donated by the Mecklenburg chapter Sons of the American Revolution October 8 2018.

Plans call for a large granite monument bearing the names of these honored dead to be placed within the cemetery so that future generations may be reminded of these otherwise ordinary men who made this nation possible.

The dedication ceremony is scheduled for November 3, 2018. In order to meet this goal, we raised $8,900.
