Daniel Witcher Chapter was organized on 1 November 1951, making 2001 the celebration of our 50th anniversary. 

Captain Daniel Witcher signed the Oath of Allegiance in Pittsylvania County, Virginia to national independence and renouncing loyalty to King George III.  He then headed up a list of signees in 1777 to fight under his command.  He fought at Stono Ferry, South Carolina on June 20, 1779, and the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, North Carolina on March 15, 1781.  In March 1777, he commanded a campaign against marauding Indians in Virginia.  In the fall of 1780, he commanded a company of militia under General Nathaniel Greene at Millsboro, North Carolina.
