The nation’s capital welcomed more than 3,500 members of one of its foremost service organizations in June with the arrival of the Daughters of the American Revolution for their 123rd annual Continental Congress.

Attending was Chapter Regent Marjorie N. Wilson of Marietta, a member of Old Noonday chapter in Roswell. Highlights of the week-long event included welcoming respected keynote speakers and award winners during the gala evening ceremonies.

The keynote speaker for the Opening Night Ceremony was author and historian Alexander Rose, who discussed his book, “Washington’s Spies: The Story of America’s First Spy Ring,” and the ordinary people who did extraordinary things to help secure American independence. The ceremony also welcomed executives from AMC’s television show, TURN, who were presented with the DAR Media and Entertainment Award. The DAR Medal of Honor was presented to historian and well-known battlefield tour guide, Ed Bearss.
