Samuel Wilkins Grave Marking

Vice-President Steve Mallory represented our chapter well yesterday at the chill grave marking ceremony for Pvt. Samuel Wilkins at the Little Mount Cemetery near Hodgenville, Kentucky.

Pvt. Thomas Wilkins served in the 14th Virginia Regiment of the Continental Army for three years (1776-1779). The 14th Virginia fought inmajor battles of the Revolution, Brandywine, Germantown and Monmouth. The unit also spent the Winter of 1777-1778 at Valley Forge.

Steve presented the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter wreath and fired in the black powder salute.  His wife, Debbie, made the trip with him.
