About the Chapter:

The Chapter is named in honor of General John Archer Elmore who served as a military officer in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. General Elmore was born in Prince Edward County, Virginia on 21 August 1762 to Archelaus Elmore and Susannah Morris. He joined the Continental Army while still a youth and served in the Virginia Line under Nathanael Greene. Elmore was with Green in his tour through the Carolinas, and was present at the Surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown.

After the war, he settled in Laurens District, South Carolina, where he was elected to the State Legislature. In 1819, he moved to Autauga, Alabama, where he was again elected as a State Legislator and served there until his death in 1834. Autauga was renamed Elmore County in his honor.
