SAR is a fraternal and civic society composed of lineal male descendants of the patriots who secured our nation’s liberty and supported the cause of American Independence.
The first state societies were formed in the 1880’s. The first congress of the SAR was held on April 30th, 1890, the 101st anniversary of the inauguration of George Washington as America’s first president.
The National Society was chartered by an Act of the United States Congress and the charter was signed by President Theodore Roosevelt, who was also a member of the SAR.
