Sketch made in 1850 of Great Bridge


Organized February 21, 1894, the

Great Bridge Chapter was named for the

first land battle of the American Revolution

fought in the South against the British,

December 9, 1775, twelve miles from Norfolk.

Chapter Charter number 86 was issued July 14, 1894.



I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people,
by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent
of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign
States; a perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of
freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed
their lives and fortunes.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its
Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its Flag; and to
defend it against all enemies.
