Welcome to the William Byrd Chapter
The William Byrd Chapter, named for Colonel William Byrd II, was founded in 1917. Throughout its ninety years, the William Byrd Chapter has been involved in multiple projects. During World War I, members worked to support the war effort by caring for war orphans and collecting war supplies. In 1928, the chapter became the caretakers of the Madison Cemetery at Montpelier and later placed a bronze plaque on the cemetery wall on the 100th anniversary of Madison's death. During World War II, members' efforts included sending more seed packages to the War Services Gardens Overseas than any other chapter in the United States.
