1. American Revolutionary War Monument
Inscription.  The Norfolk Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution dedicates this monument on behalf of our ancestors that fought for this country’s independence, 1775 to 1783. These ancestors answered the call of a fledgling country to fight the tyranny and oppressions that were being placed on them by the British Empire. These citizen-soldiers, whether they served in the Continental Regulars, Continental Navy, or state militias, were ill equipped and ill trained at the beginning of the revolution and continued to fight one of the strongest nations of the time. These patriots not only struggled through the lack of military training, but the harsh seasons of the time and a lack of funding from the Continental Congress. They stayed the course that they had set and finally won our country’s independence. The patriots who fought for our country’s independence are truly the first veterans of the United States of America. Let this marker honor their sacrifices they gave during this time and as a marker for those graves of those veterans that are lost forever.
