In the left photo, both the MOSSAR & KSSSAR Color Guard Teams participated in the American Revolution War Patriot Dedication for the Patriot Elizabeth Duncan Porter on Saturday, May 24, 2008 at Union Cemetery in Kansas City, MO. The Major Isaac Sadler-La Belle Vue Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is proud to honor the memory of Mrs. Porter by installing and dedicating a marker. Porter and her family were among 129 persons taken captive on June 26, 1780 at Martin's Station on Stoner Creek near present-day Paris, Kentucky. The fall of Martin's Station occurred during a raid by the British and their Indian allies in an attempt to destroy many of the settlements in the land which would become known as "the dark and bloody ground." The Martin Station prisoners were joined by 250 prisoners who survived a massacre at nearby Ruddell's Station and forced to make a grueling 350-mile, 5.5 week march to the British stronghold at Detroit. Elizabeth and her immediate family remained prisoners of the British until early November 1782.
