Bragg & Young to present The Society of the Cincinnati at the Library
On Friday, September 30, at noon, the Thomas County Public Library is pleased to welcome Chip Bragg and Randy Young as they present The Society of the Cincinnati to our community.
Beginning in 1783, The Society of the Cincinnati holds the title of our nation’s oldest patriotic organization. Officers of the Continental Army and their French allies of the American Revolution founded this organization with George Washington serving as its first president general.
The society hopes to educate others with the achievements of American independence and promote fellowship among its members.
With a worldwide membership of just over 3,000, Thomasville claims fame within the organization as having the highest membership per capita of any community. Our area has around a dozen members either coming from or claiming Thomasville as their home including Bill Raiford, who was the president general of the Society in the 1990's.
