The Anne Frisby Fitzhugh chapter focused primarily patriot items, educating students about the flag, funding and erecting memorials, as well as partricipating in and organizing parades. One of their memorials honoring veterans was installed at the foot of the flag in Wenonah Park in 1922. Unfortunately, it was removed when the park was modernized and never relocated to another place.
