The chapter was named for the historic Star Fort located near the town of Ninety Six. The fort was constructed by the British to protect early settlers in the area from the Indians, but it became the site of the first land battle of the Revolutionary War fought south of New England (in 1775.)  Later, General Nathanael Greene and 1,000 Patriot troops laid siege to the star-shaped fort.  Although unable to dislodge the 550 Loyalists defending Star Fort, General Greene is credited with staging the longest siege of the Revolutionary War.

The Chapter members have supported Tamassee DAR School with financial contributions, Thrift Store donations, and a constant stream of clipped soup labels.  The Chapter also sponsors the Fort Charlotte Society, Children of the American Revolution.  

Members join in projects to collect Bible records and complete listings of cemetery inscriptions in Greenwood County.  These projects have been published, with copies donated to the NSDAR library in Washington, D.C. and the SCDAR library in Camden.

Daughters continue to work to support the objectives of our National Society - patriotic endeavors, historic preservation, and promotion of patriotic education. Contact us if you are interested in receiving a personal invitation to our next meeting.
