About Our Chapter

 

Peacock Chapter, Daytona Beach, has meetings three times a year. The chapter, organized in 1989, serves the National Society and the community. Through interesting programs, the chapter educates members on our country’s second War for Independence, updates, and makes members aware of 1812 era historical landmarks, and promotes patriotism. Those interested in membership are encouraged to contact the chapter president through email provided with this web site’s link to the National Society.

 

 

Our Chapter Name

 

The Chapter was named in honor of the Peacock, an American Sloop of War, mounting eighteen guns, which emerged victorious from the battle off the Florida Coast near Cape Canaveral, when it engaged in a battle on 28 April 1814 with the British Brig Epervier.

 

The Americans lost no men to the battle while the British suffered eight deaths and had fifteen men wounded. Only two Americans were wounded, neither seriously. The American vessel was hit in the first round fired by the British but preserved to win the action.

Ongoing projects include attending ROTC ceremonies and honoring school selected students enrolled in the program, providing gifts and comfort items to veterans at area Veteran’s nursing homes. Adding to the Society’s database of grave locations for our War of 1812 ancestors.
