The county was formed in 1779 from Tryon County; and, it was named for Benjamin Lincoln, a general in the American Revolutionary War. During the American Revolution, the Battle of Ramsour’s Mill occurred near a grist mill in Lincolnton in the summer of 1780. A few months later, the Battle of Cowan’s Ford occurred where Lincoln and Mecklenburg County meet at the basin of the Catawba River.

Our chapter was organized on October 21, 2017, with 17 charter members. Organizing regent, Jennifer Baker, was aided by Michelle Stewart, vice regent; Kathryn Fritz, treasurer; Rebecca Young, registrar; Barbara Puccio, recording secretary; Christine Tobias, corresponding secretary; Cynthia Hunter, historian and Libba Thompson, chaplain.
