WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA
Presidential Families of America again in 2019, participated in honoring our Veterans in the Salisbury National Cemetery Annex, part of the nationwide project known as "Wreaths Across America." The project covers the Rowan County/Charlotte NC area. There are 9600 Veterans Graves where wreaths were placed on graves of Veterans, strongly supporting the nationwide mission. The goal of "Wreaths Across America" is to have a wreath placed on the grave of every Veteran in America, one grave at the time.
Saturday, December 14, 2019 was the nationwide day for the wreath ceremony. A dedication was held, and a moment of silence observed at exactly 12 noon EST across the nation. Following the ceremony, volunteers dispersed, placing a wreath on each Veteran's grave, reverently stating the Veteran’s name aloud, as an annual remembrance to that person and his or her service to the nation. Wreaths were placed on the 9600 graves in the Annex and 2700 in the original Cemetery.
Presidential Families of America.
Founded in 1995, we are a lineage society composed of members
who share direct or collateral blood kinship with one or more
Presidents of the United States.
American Experiment ranks
the greatest achievements of human civilization.
Having successfully established unprecedented individual
freedoms, private ownership, and republic-based democratic
governance, The United States of America, has essentially
pioneered and protected the free-world model across the
globe. At the helm of this remarkable nation stands
the leader of the executive branch of its
government; the Commander in Chief; the American
Known in this modern era as 'The Leader of the Free World',
the President does, indeed, wield
extraordinary power. Among other things, the post carries the singular
allowance to wage war for
sixty days without the consent of Congress, the privilege
Supreme Court Justices, and the ability to veto legislation from
Congress. The President's position and office,
unlike the judicial and legislative branches of American
government, is unified, focused and concise, and its authority is
Even so, our Presidents are only mere mortals. They
are our fellow
Americans whom descend from the very same immigrants from which
we, ourselves, descend. They grew up in the same cities
and towns in which our own children play today.
American genealogical study is a relatively defined field (about four hundred
years of history), although there still exists significant
research to be undertaken. Because of this, our common, traceable
lineages are something which tie Americans together as a nation,
and as individuals, in a unique way.
Presidential Families of America is committed to honoring
the men (and no doubt, women, in future years), who have led our nation.
We are dedicated to identifying and preserving the family history records of
all American Presidents, as well as to nurturing
fellowship amongst their direct and collateral relatives.
Members of PFA are united in celebration of the
accomplishments of all American Presidents, regardless of
political party, or issues of the past. We cherish the
special heritage which has come to us through our
