Honeywell has been the first-line signer on more than 150 approved SAR applications. GEORGIA SOCIETY Atlanta Chapter Atlanta Chapter compatriots made two presentations to Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. The first was a Flag Certificate for properly displaying the flag at the state capitol in Atlanta during his two terms of office (2011-18). The second presentation was a copy of the book Patriots in Georgia Revolutionary War Engagements 1776-1782 by David Noble and Richard Marsh of the Atlanta Chapter, to be placed in the Georgia Governor's Mansion Library. The book won the 2017 Minnesota Society Stephen Taylor Award for making a distinguished contribution to the preservation of the history of the Revolutionary War Era and its Patriots. When people think of the Revolutionary War, Lexington, Concord and George Washington at Valley Forge often come to mind. Some people, including Georgians, are not aware of Georgia's role in the Revolution. This was due, in part, to Georgia's status during that time. It was the only colony that ceased to be governed by a Colonial government and reverted to direct control by the British Crown. As a result, significant portions of the documents and records did not survive the Revolution. Noble led the research effort, reviewing thousands of pension records, historical texts and other sources. By the date of the book's publication, 2,052 Patriots had been identified and documented. Many of these Patriots were originally from North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. The book provides, for the first time, linkage between the Patriots, their officers, the battles they fought and those with whom they associated. It is organized into two primary sections: a summary of battles, with the rosters for each engagement, and a summary of the Patriots, with outlines for each of the engagements in which they were involved. Further information on the book can be found at www.saratlanta.org . 26 SAR MAGAZINE Attending the presentations were, below from left, Bill Goodman, Al Adams, Bruce Maney, Terry Manning, Bill Palmer, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal, Chapter President Henry Cobb, David Noble, Richard Marsh, Eugene Wilson and Shep Hammack [Photo by Gregory Smith]; right, Gov. Deal with David Noble, co-author of the book.
