Final Two Soldier Sculptures Completed

Final casting of Militia Soldier (Rifleman) and the Minuteman.

If you are a member of the Sons of the American Revolution or Daughter of the American Revolution you can purchase a Patriot sculpture with the name of your Patriot ancestor engraved on each. These are 14" versions of the 6' soldiers cast in bronze on the memorial by artist Michael Tieman.

There are three sculptures, the Minuteman, Militia soldier and the Continental soldier (pictured to the left). These sculptures are cold cast in bronze/resin one at a time by the artist, ready to hang with a wood back and a metal plate engraved with the name of your Patriot. If you would like one of these and you do not have a Patriot, the nameplate will be engraved with the type of soldier. Collect all three.

Each sculpture is $100 plus $15 S&H. The Memorial will receive $50 from each sale.  Contact Michael at  info@ORWM.org for more details.

General Francis Marion shows up in Marion County

May 2, 2018, marks the 175th anniversary of the vote at Champoeg to form Oregon's first provisional government. To commemorate this, the Marion County Commissioners held a meeting at Champoeg Visitor Center. Lewis & Clark Chapter President, Michael Tieman, appeared as General Francis Marion, a fierce adversary of the British in South Carolina during the Revolutionary War. Marion County was originally the Champooick District and was created on July 5, 1843. On September 3, 1849, the territorial legislature changed the name of Champoeg County, as it was then called, to Marion County in honor of General Marion.
