Moccasin Bend Chapter

Tennessee Society Daughters of the American Revolution

Chattanooga, Tennessee


Sketch of Moccasin Bend by Mrs. Penny Cagle Grant

The Moccasin Bend Chapter was organized on November 21, 1953, at Chattanooga, Tennessee. It was named for the historical peninsula, in the shape of a moccasin, formed by the Tennessee River as it winds through the Chattanooga area. Moccasin Bend is especially beautiful when viewed from the mountains above the city.

            Mrs. Irene Stoops Garrison was the organizing regent and held the first meeting in her home with twelve ladies in attendance. To accommodate professional women, the chapter meetings were held at night. Later the group changed the meeting times to the morning of either the second Wednesday or the second Saturday of each month, September through June. Today, all chapter meetings are held on second Saturdays, except for the June meeting, which is on Wednesday closest to Flag Day.

            Moccasin Bend Chapter members are active participants in, and contributors to, DAR projects and activities at local, district, state, and national levels. They are enthusiastic supporters of the Society.
