Sons and a Daughter of the American Revolution Visit RSD 01/31/14
Members of the National Society of the Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution visited Rochester School for the Deaf on Friday, January 31, 2014. The activity was coordinated by Teachers Mr. Gene DiVincenzo and Mrs. Christine Fitzgerald, who is a member of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution are men and women who come from diverse backgrounds and hold a variety of interests. Their common bond is their linear descent from Patriots of the American Revolution. Members of the Empire State Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) visiting RSD included: Robert Fuller, who is deaf and was a Scoutmaster at RSD for several years; Robert Coomber; Brent Downing; William Brewer; Richard Eagleton; James Eagan; and Stephan Clarke.
While at RSD these members of the Empire State Society of SARs each explained their direct lineage to the American Revolution. They provided presentations on the role of New York State and the Rochester region in the American Revolution, their period dress, military equipment, and what life was like for patriots fighting in the American Revolution. They also displayed and allowed students to touch and feel actual artifacts found in American Revolution battlefields.
