George Washington Birthday Ball 2014

This year’s George Washington Birthday Ball was a success! The Fifth New York Regiment stood guard during the cocktail hour in the Grand Library at The Yale Club and then later marched with the Knickerbocker Greys to open the night to ceremonies. The Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York Color Guard presented flags.

The five Regents of the Daughters of the Revolution Chapters in Manhattan, Jane Campbell (New York City Chapter), Margarita Bloch (Mary Washington Colonial Chapter), Victoria Chall (Manhattan Chapter), Ursula Cary (Peter Minuit Chapter), and Karen Stewart (Knickerbocker Chapter) were honored for their leadership in their respective organizations whose missions are to educate the public and preserve the memory of the American Revolutionary War.
