The Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter of the Kentucky Society Sons of the American Revolution met Wednesday, Feb. 22, to mark the 275th anniversary of President George Washington's birthday. Compatriots from the Cadiz chapter gathered at the John L. Street Library to present a book about George Washington to Library Director Pam Metts.
The book that the chapter gifted to the library was Jim Murphy's "The Crossing," which tells the story of Washington's Army crossing the Delaware River for its attack on the Hessian mercenaries in Princeton, N.J., on Christmas in 1776.
This is the second year that Metts has allowed the chapter to place a "George Washington's Birthday" display at the library during the month of February. It is also the second year that the chapter has donated a volume to the library, thus establishing an ongoing partnership for historical education.
