The Colonel John Robinson Chapter was founded by Mrs. Albert Picking and organized on January 22, 1947. The chapter has members from Westford, Chelmsford, Littleton, and Groton, Tyngsboro, Harvard and other surrounding communities. We  hold  four meetings between September and May.

John Robinson (1735-1805) was a Massachusetts militia and Continental Army officer from Westford. On April 19, 1775, during the Battle of Concord, Robinson was the second highest-ranking officer in the field after Col. James Barrett. Robinson marched next to Maj. John Buttrick at the head of the American column which advanced on and defeated the British Regulars at the Old North Bridge. He would later fight at the Battle of Bunker Hill, and serve under General George Washington during the Siege of Boston.
