Four Compatriots from the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter took part in the annual Central District commemoration of the Battle of Blue Licks in Eastern Kentucky.  The event honors the seventy-seven Kentuckians who died at the hands of over 300 Shawnee warriors under the command of the British on August 19, 1782.  The commemoration ceremony is held each year at the granite monument honoring the men of Blue Licks near the site of their mass grave.

Compatriots Geoff Baggett, Charles Drennan, and Steve Mallory took part in the military gun salute.

In addition to receiving credit toward the SAR Silver Color Guard Medal for participation in a District/National event, all four of these men also received credit for five marked graves (due to the site being a mass grave of Patriot soldiers) toward the Patriot Grave Marking Medal.
