Gerry Miller

The Road to Saratoga

Our speaker for the May meeting will be Gerry Miller.

Gerald "gerry" Miller, a member of the Battle Born Patriots Chapter of Northern Nevada and a dual member of the Sacramento Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution, will reflect on his trip with his lovely wife Charlotte, and other SAR members to the heart of the American Revolution. The SAR sponsored trip "...generally followed the 1777 route of British Gen. John Burgoyne from Quebec City to his defeat at Saratoga at the hands of Patriots under the command of Gen. Horatio Gates and ended with a patriotic celebration in Albany, the unachieved objective of Burgoyne."

gerry's patriot ancestor was Joseph Blatchley, served under Captain Rueben Schofield in the 9th Regiment Connecticut Militia. He donated a portion of his farmland to the Militia for a Parade Ground and served in the opposition of Tryon's attack upon New Haven Ct.; the storming of Stoney Point New York and in Sullivan's Indian Raid.

We look forward to visiting with gerry and Charlotte and sharing his many images. He is an amateur photographer that claims that he is only capturing light with his camera while recording the images presented him. Some of his images can be found at his Facebook page located at https://www.facebook.com/gerry.miller.167189/photos_all.

Who We Are
The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) are direct descendants of those patriots that achieved the independence of the American people. The objectives of our organization are intended to perpetuate a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
The Purpose of Our Society
The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic United States 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks to maintain and extend:
  • the institutions of American freedom
  • an appreciation for true patriotism
  • a respect for our national symbols
  • the value of American citizenship
  • the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.
We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

Preserve the memory of those whose service and sacrifice during the American Revolution secured independence for the American people.
  • Unite and promote fellowship among their descendants.
  • Inspire them and the Community with a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
  • Encourage historical research in relation to the American Revolution.
  • Maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, an appreciation for true patriotism, a respect for our national symbols, and the value of American citizenship.
  • Promote the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Constitution.
