Commemoration Committee for the Battle of Fort San Carlos
An American Revolutionary War Battle fought at Saint Louis, MO.
The members of the committee are people who are interested in the history of St. Louis, the history of the American Revolution, and simply history in general. Some members are descendants of the players in the saga of the Battle for St. Louis at Fort San Carlos. Many belong to such organizations as the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Sons of the American Revolution, the Sons of the Revolution, the National Society of New England Women, Daughters of Colonial Wars, Daughters of the American Colonists and the Landmarks Association. Several members are active or retired teachers of history, members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Societe Francaise.
The Committee welcomes all people who wish to join our commemorative efforts. Affiliation with another group certainly is not necessary to offer valuable input to our efforts.
