Daughters of the American Revolution rededicate memorial with wreath laying ceremony

The Daughters of the American Revolution Elkhart Chapter rededicated a memorial honoring veterans of the Revolutionary War on Monday.

The memorial recognizing all the soldiers who fought, and especially the five known Revolutionary War Veterans buried in Elkhart County, was originally dedicated in 1932 outside the Elkhart Municipal Building on Second St.  On Memorial Day in 2013, the chapter chose to rededicate the memorial.  This year they decided to do it again.

The Daughters of the American Revolution are women who can trace their heritage to "a patriot of the American Revolution."  The Elkhart Chapter is involved in charity work and teaching children about American history.
