Friends of Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park    

Honor Your Patriot Ancestors

This summer, the Friends of Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park in Elizabethton, TN will be presenting the Official Outdoor Drama of the State of Tennessee – “Liberty! The Saga of Sycamore Shoals”.  Liberty! tells the history of Sycamore Shoals in the 1770’s and the many Patriots that passed through Sycamore Shoals.  On September 25, 1780, the Overmountain Men mustered at Sycamore Shoals and marched to Kings Mountain in SC to defeat the British led by Major Patrick Ferguson.

Liberty! is a tribute to our Patriot Ancestors.  We are offering the opportunity for you to honor your Patriot Ancestor(s) on special pages in our Liberty! program.  Attached is an example of what the pages will look like and contains the pricing and the order form.  Three thousand copies of the Liberty! program are printed and distributed.

In addition to being published in the Liberty! program, your entry will be displayed for a year on a page we are setting up on the Friends of Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park website.  Visited over 55,000 times last year, the website will be an even bigger forum to remember our Patriot Ancestors.

Have multiple Patriot Ancestors? Honor each one.  Have more than four Patriot Ancestors? See our order form for special pricing.  Have a Patriot Ancestor you can’t quite prove the lineage for?  It doesn’t matter – if you believe they are one of your Patriot Ancestors, honor them.  Know of a Patriot you want to honor, but is not your Patriot Ancestor – feel free to honor him/her as well.

We need to receive your order form and payment by 5/31/2018 to insure your entry is included in the 2018 Liberty! program.
