The Sons of the American Revolution for the state of South Carolina presented AFL's Executive Producer and star, Clarence Felder with a Silver Citizenship Medal and Director Chris Weatherhead received a Medal of Appreciation. Awarded at the chapter's 121 st Annual State meeting by Mark C. Anthony, Secretary and President, Douglas Doster, both honors were in recognition of notable services on behalf of American principles.
Clarence Felder remarked, “This means a great deal to me. I feel through these awards and the great response on the film, my ancestor, Captain Henry Felder, is receiving long-overdue recognition for his bravery and sacrifices. We hope to share his story with many generations of Americans who need to be inspired by it. And we hope our film will create a path for other forgotten heroes to be honored.”
Mark C. Anthony from the SCSAR, added, “ The SAR is always pleased to recognize the efforts of those who increase the knowledge of the American Revolution. In this case, taking that experience into theaters and homes via film and DVD is unique and much deserved.”
