    It has been 236 years since William Caswell passed away and it is about time to have his grave marked. We have obtained a headstone from the VA for William Caswell and will be placing an SAR marker at the foot of his grave. The Moseley-Bright Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) will be participation in the Commemoration and Grave Marking along with the Children of the American Revolution.

    Please join us in commemoration of these two American Heroes, Richard and William Caswell. The State of NC will be having some events on that day to help celebrate.
