Color Guard

The Cahaba – Coosa Color Guard is made up of those Compatriots who attend events and sometimes meetings properly uniformed as either Continental Soldiers or Militiamen, or attired as Revolutionary era clergymen. Examples of these events include patriotic occasions, patriotic holiday celebrations, Revolutionary Patriot grave marking ceremonies and reenactments to name a few. On many occasions we join with Compatriots from other chapters as part of the ALSSAR state color guard.

We seek to visibly promote the stated objectives of the SAR which are declared to be Historical, Patriotic and Educational. Therefore, it is important that a Revolutionary War Uniformed Color Guard fielded by the Cahaba – Coosa Chapter be historically correct so that these objectives are not compromised.

Every time the Cahaba-Coosa Chapter Color Guard makes a public appearance, the members are fulfilling all three objectives. In fact, the Color Guard is one of the most effective public relations tools available to our chapter.
