On Monday, December 1st, the Charles Duncan Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution gathered at the historic Mariah’s 1818 restaurant in Bowling Green, Kentucky for their annual Christmas dinner. Despite some cold weather and snow flurries, the chapter filled a banquet room to enjoy some great food, fellowship and a fascinating presentation by Albert “The Doctor” Roberts on the life of an itinerant 18th century physician. “The Doctor” lost his amputation saw in a skirmish with some of the local natives, but kept us entertained nonetheless with tales of frontier medicine. We were reminded of the hardships and sacrifices made by our ancestors who fought in the Revolution as “The Doctor” detailed that the survivors of amputation numbered only one in four. Many thanks to “The Doctor” for gracing us with his presence.
