William Lee Davidson, a Continental Army General, was a brave leader who sought to defend Nathanael Greene’s retreat from Lord Cornwallis’s surge across North Carolina. In 1781, Davidson and his troops stood against Cornwallis at Cowan’s Ford, but the British eventually broke the defense lines. Davidson died during the assault, and in honor of his gallantry, Davidson County was named after the American Revolutionary War hero.

Our chapter was organized on June 9, 2018, with 14 charter members. The meeting took place at the oldest home in Lexington, The Homestead. The home was built by Dr. William Rainey Holt (1798-1868) in 1836.

The Leonard’s Creek Chapter, NSDAR, is based in Lexington, N.C., which is the county seat of Davidson County. The town was named in honor of Lexington, Massachusetts, where in 1775 “the shot heard around the world” was fired.
