THE JOSEPH ACKER CHAPTER #382
SOCIETY of the NATIONAL SOCIETY TEXAS
UNITED STATES DAUGHTERS of 1812
New Braunfels, Texas
Chartered February 17, 1995
We honor the Organizing Chapter President, Mrs. Delitha Guenzel,
by taking the name of her Patriotic Ancestor, Joseph Acker, for our chapter name.
Chapter meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of February, April, and October at 9:30 am.
This is the Bicentennial of the War of 1812. Our ancestors fought over 200 years ago. Unfortunately, so many Americans have no idea the war was fought. A Spanish born philosopher and poet, George Santayana quoted: "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." Take time to read about the war. Books are available at local book stores, online, and a few may be found at discount book sellers.
The US Navy has held celebrations at
many locations around the
ancestors of today and tomorrow, are shaping the future of your lives. Our
ancestors fought the War of 1812, which was the continuation of the American
Revolution. Because of their courage and belief in a democratic society, they
labored and fought to shape the civilization of our time, not only
theirs. We give thanks to our ancestors. God bless
Salute to The Flag of 1812
All hail to Thee, fair flag of 1812, under whose

We pledge to Thee our loyal hearts, and thus salute Thee.
