The Lone Star chapter Sons of the Republic and the Judge Nathaniel Hart Davis Daughters of the Republic of Texas (DRT) chapter will be on hand for all the events.
The bust of Dr. Charles B. Stewart, created by artist Craig Campobella, will be at the entrance of the park, which will highlight the flags of the Texas Revolution and will be unveiled by Pat Spackey, the president of the Judge Nathaniel Hart Davis DRT chapter and the great, great, great granddaughter of Texas flag designer and patriot Charles B. Stewart.
The local groups have represented Montgomery County during all of the celebrations commemorating the 175th anniversary of the signing of the Texas Declaration of Independence, including a presentation at the Alamo in San Antonio and ceremonies at Washington-on-the-Brazos honoring the descendants of the signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence. Most recently, they took part in the Texas Independence Day Festival and Chili Cook-off in Conroe.
