History

Florida Revolutionary War

Information on Florida sites during the American Revolutionary War.

Site informationlinks provided below contain information relevant to the specific sites.

Battle of Pensacola-The Battle of Pensacola was fought between Spanish forces under the command of General Bernardo de
Galvez and the British garrison under the command of General John Campbell. The garrison surrendered after a siege began on 9 March 1781.   

Last Naval Battle- Last Naval Battle of the Revolution: Sea battle on March 10, 1783, off Cape Canaveral between Capt. John Barry on the Alliance and British ships Alarm, Sybil, and Tobago.

Since inception, The Last Naval Battle of the American Revolution celebration has been supported by members from the Georgia, North Carolina, Illinois and other societies. The annual event routinely has
between 2 and 4 SAR State Societies attending. National officers have also routinely attended. Between 20 and 40 wreaths are presented annually representing SAR, DAR, C.A.R., JROTC units, Multiple
Veterans Groups, and individuals.

Battle of Thomas Creek-   On May 17, 1777, a small force of 109 Georgia Mounted Militia men, led by Lt. Colonel John Baker,
were ambushed by a large mixed force of British Regulars, East Florida Rangers, Loyalists and Native Americans in this area. Only 42 patriots, including Colonel Baker, survived the battle.


The Florida Society, SAR commemorates the 243rd anniversary for the Battle of Thomas Creek (the Southernmost Land Battle of the American Revolutionary War).

Americanism Elementary Poster and Middle School Brochure Contests -

Chairman: Larry Dean Sturgeon

The Americanism Elementary Poster and the Middle School Brochure Contests has been a great youth venue for stimulating Revolutionary War period history in our students. The Poster Contest is for elementary students in the 3rd -5th grades and the Brochure Contest is for Middle School grades 6th – 8th grades. For the Poster Contest, State Societies can pick their own contest theme on “Revolutionary War Events” for even numbered academic years and for odd number academic years the theme shall be “Revolutionary War People”.
The Poster FLSSAR State winners at the June 12th – June 14th BOM and Annual Meeting were:
1st Place, Caydence Prosak, Withlacoochee Chapter, 2nd Place, Layla Busby, Lake-Sumter Chapter and 3rd Place, Logan Tempel, Jacksonville Chapter. The Brochure FLSSAR State winners were 1st Place, Isabella Rincon, Caloosa Chapter, 2nd Place, Lindsey A. Cruz-Gutierrez, Jacksonville Chapter.

Poster Contest:

Accordingly, for FLSSAR 2019-2020, the Poster Contest Revolutionary War theme will be the “The Battle of Thomas Creek”. As before, I would suggest the Chapter winner deadline date of April 2018. For the FLSSAR contest the chapter winning posters (22 X 28 inches) will need to be brought to the BOM and Annual FLSSAR meeting by Friday Morning for judging. Make sure Chairman Sturgeon receives an original plus two copies of the entry form for the winning chapter poster. Attach the original to the back of the poster and Mr. Sturgeon will mail one copy to the National Chairman and the other copy to NSSAR HQ before June 1. For more details and entry forms go to: www.sar.org/Americanism-elementary-school-poster-contest. Next year our FLSSAR Poster theme for 2020-2021, the Revolutionary War People, will be Commander-In-Chief“, General George Washington” of the Continental Army.

Brochure Contest: (The Sgt. Moses Adams Memorial Middle School Contest)

The Brochure FLSSAR State winners at the June 12th – June 14th BOM and Annual Meeting were:
1st Place, Isabella Rincon, Gulf Middle School, Calossa Chapter, 2nd Place, Lindsey A. Cruz-Gutierrez, Jacksonville Chapter.
Again, the theme for the Brochure contest is different than the poster contest and centers around the 8th grade curriculum where American History is normally taught in middle school. Submission is on an 8 ½ X 11 piece of paper that is created into a tri-fold brochure. The brochure will be judged on student art and student authored theme text. Material cut and pasted from books, magazines and the internet will be accepted but will receive a lower grade than student produced the artwork. Our FLSSAR submission deadline from individual chapter winners will need to be mailed or emailed to me by the end of April 2021. I will then email all chapter entries to our FLSSAR judges for their review and scoring. Hopefully, by the middle of May 2021, I will be able to forward by email our FLSSAR State Brochure winner to our National Brochure Chairman Kevin Tierney. Chairman Tierney will then repeat the process for all state winners to all the NSSAR judges to have a winner for final evaluation at Congress in Seattle, Washington in July 2021. For more details and entry forms go to: www.sar.org/education/youth-contests-and-awards.
“The permanent Middle School Brochure Contest theme that began with the 2020-2021 academic term will again be "The Foundational Documents of the United States". The theme for the Brochure Contest is structured to match up with the Government curricula found in most states during the middle school years. The students will be encouraged to pick a founding document and produce a brochure within the established criteria. This will eliminate the need to revisit the theme on an annual basis while providing a large amount of flexibility to adapt to the established curricula.”
This model will make it easier for Chapter Youth Contest Chairmen to find classroom teachers who can blend our contest into their history lesson plans.

These documents include: (remember A, B, C, and D & F)
• Articles of Confederation
• Bill of Rights
• Constitution
• Declaration of Independence
• Federalist Papers

Knight Essay Contest” in honor of their generous gift to the National Society to support this contest.  The contest is designed to give High School students an opportunity to explore the early events that shaped American Revolutionary History.  

The Florida Society has conducted a contest nearly every year since the National program was established. In recent years, the state committee has taken steps to improve the contest, concentrating on making it easier for students to enter. The committee is open to suggestions for improving the contest.

Getting Started:

       Sometimes the hardest part in getting started is coming up with a topic for your essay. Perhaps the easiest approach is to pick some aspect of the American Revolution you found particularly interesting when you studied it in school.

       There are any number of very interesting characters in the drama of our revolution. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and John Adams come immediately to mind, but you might find that an essay written about a lesser known individual might be more interesting to you and, hopefully, more interesting to the judges.

       Events also are appropriate so any battle of the revolution is up for consideration. An analysis of the success or failure of tactics and strategies can make for a good essay thesis. But the revolution was more than battles. John Adam’s defense of the British soldiers charged in the Boston Massacre is just one example.

       If you like to “think the big thoughts” you might pursue a thesis on the ideals of the revolution. For some students this approach would be difficult but perhaps you enjoy philosophy and can articulate this type of topic well.

       So, give it some thought. Talk to your history teacher and parents. Do some brainstorming.  Then outline your essay before you write your first draft.

       The rest is basically research and proper writing. MLA Documentation:   The essay and bibliography must be documented with the rules found on the NSSAR website.  If the acceptable listings there are not available, give consideration to Modern Language Association publication, MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (see www.mla.org) or Kate L. Turabian's publication "A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Thesis and Dissertations."

      If you need assistance with the proper formatting of your essay and the bibliography here are two suggestions that might help:

 1. Your high school English teacher: He/she may help you with formatting and likely be able to make some suggestions that will improve the writing and content of your essay. It is always a good idea to have someone proof read your work.
2. Run a web search on “MLA Documentation”. You’ll find many fine websites that give all the information you’ll need for your essay. Here’s one that we thought was helpful: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/557/01/

Minute Man Award

DISTINGUISHED RECIPIENTS
OF THE
Minute Man Medal

The Minuteman Award is the highest award presented to a member by the National Society. It is presented for active and distinguished service rendered to the SAR at the national level. Annually at the Spring Leadership Meeting, the Minuteman Committee, which is composed of members holding the award, will select no more than six award recipients for the current year and announce those selected at the meeting. The President General appoints the Minuteman Committee. The award was authorized in 1952 and consists of a rectangular medal, struck in sterling silver suspended from a neck ribbon of light blue silk. The obverse depicts a Minuteman holding a rifle with a plow in the background along with the Liberty Bell. The reverse is inscribed "Highest Award of the National Society Sons of the American Revolution. Presented to (Name, Year)." The medal is accompanied by a certificate. A miniature version is available. The President General presents the award during the Minuteman Ceremony at each Annual Congress. At that ceremony, all previous recipients of the award in attendance, dressed in white dinner jackets, are seated on the dais. The new honorees are escorted to the dais by a previous recipient of the Minuteman Award chosen by the honoree. The Minuteman Award is awarded only to individual members on a onetime basis. It is not presented in absentia.

A nominee must have a minimum of five years of active and distinguished service to the National Society. He must have served at least three years in a National elective office (General Officer, Vice President General, Trustee, or Alternate Trustee); as well as having served as a Committee or Task Force Chairman/Vice Chairman for at least three years. All requirements should be thoroughly reviewed before making the nomination
