In the summer of 2013, Compatriot David Noble kicked off a Chapter project to find the locations of Revolutionary War Battlefields in Georgia where men had been killed or wounded.  After finding 28 sites, Compatriot Noble Joined by Compatriot Jim Hankins toured Georgia collecting soil samples at each site. Then we designed and constructed two traveling exhibits for the public along with a brochure to help educate them about the battles. The exhibits traveled to Gwynn, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Wilkes, and Cherokee Counties in Georgia and were presented at the 2014 State SAR meeting and the National SAR meeting in Greensborough, South Carolina. Presently one exhibit is in the City Office building of Snellville, Georgia and the second is in the welcoming center in Washington, Georgia.
