Tom Chilton aka “Mountain Man Tom” of the Sacramento Chapter CASSAR, Tom Douglas aka “Capt. James Curry of the Eighth Virginia Regiment” Mother Lode Chapter, CASSAR and Tom Adams, aka “Tom Adams,” CASSAR liaison to the Children of the American Revolution, attended the meeting of the Amador CAR for August.

Mountain Man Tom and Capt. James gave accounts of their activities during the Revolution. “MM Tom” explained his role as a colonist who farmed west of the Appalachian Range. After going through the Cumberland Gap he was convinced to fight only when he learned the English planned to return his farmland to the natives after the war. “Capt. James” joined the Eighth Virginia as a lieutenant and then became a captain in the 4th Virginia when the two units were consolidated.

Tom Adams serves the State Society not only as the CAR liaison but also as State Youth Activities coordinator and the Mother Lode Chapter’s Youth Activities coordinator and Chapter vice president. The SAR is committed to bring the real history of our patriot ancestors to the youth of our country.

For information on the CAR and SAR contact Tom Adams at [email protected].  You may go to the Mother Lode Chapters web site at www.motherlodesar.org and follow the links to the state and national websites or use the web mail to contact chapter officers.
