About Our Chapter
The Colonel Fielding Lewis Chapter was organized in Fredericksburg, VA in September 1998 because of the efforts of Marion Rambo, Organizing Chapter President, and Walter Brewster, a past President of the Virginia Society, Sons of the American Revolution. The Chapter was chartered in March 1999.
Colonel Fielding Lewis was a leading citizen and patriot in Fredericksburg before and during the Revolutionary War. He married Betty Washington, George Washington's only sister.
The Colonel Fielding Lewis Chapter meets in Fredericksburg six times each year, on the second Saturday of January, March, May, June, September, and November for lunch and a program. Most of the luncheon meetings are held at the Fredericksburg Country Club.
Through its various committees and individual efforts by its compatriots, the Chapter works to promote education and patriotism, support and recognize of our modern day patriots and veterans, and remember and commemorate the sacrifices of our ancestor patriots who so willingly risked everything for the freedom and country that we now enjoy.
The Colonel Fielding Lewis Chapter was named the Best Chapter in Virginia for 2005 for its size classification.
Amoung our compatriots, we have three State Society Officers and also members who serve on National Committees. The Chapter is also proud of its program for marking the graves of patriot ancestors and has been recognized for this work by the State Society on several occasions.
