WILLIAMSBURG — The Williamsburg Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution recognized several community members during its November meeting.

In addition, the 122nd Annual Commemoration of the Battle of Great Bridge was held at the Chesapeake City Hall, Chesapeake on Saturday, Dec. 3, due to weather. The event is sponsored by the Great Bridge Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution and the Norfolk Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution.

Great Bridge involved free and enslaved Africans fighting alongside and against both Patriots and royal British forces, and at least one member of the Nansemond Indian Nation also served the Patriot cause.
