176th DAR Chapter in New York was organized in the north wing
of historic Fort Crailo in Rensselaer. State Regent Mrs. Hamilton Gibbes
gave the oath of office to the new officers. Ruth Electa Schaefer
presented the organizing Chapter with a gavel made of the wood of the
battleship, Revenge, which saw nine days of action on Lake Champlain
during the American Revolution. We still use that gavel for
