The Nancy Hunter Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution will host a rededication ceremony at the Rush H. Limbaugh Sr. U.S. Courthouse in Cape Girardeau on April 25. The ceremony will take place at 1:30 p.m. in the atrium area. The chapter will rededicate a plaque that contains the names of the first recognized Revolutionary War soldiers in Cape Girardeau County. It was originally dedicated in 1924 at the post office, which was at the previous federal courthouse. There will be a reception following the ceremony, and a guide will be available to give a tour of the courthouse.
