About DAR

 

DAR is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization based on documented lineage to someone who fought or gave aid in the American Revolution.  We are dedicated to  promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.  We preserve historic buildings and artifacts; provide contests, awards, and scholarships; and support schools and develop good citizens. We enjoy celebrating the exceptional events in our American history.

 

 

DAR History

 

On October 11, 1890, eighteen women and four men met in Washington, D.C., for the purpose of organizing the Daughters of the American Revolution.  Their first resolution pledged support toward completing the memorial monument to Mary Washington, mother of George Washington.  And so, the first meeting of the DAR was adjourned, having laid the groundwork for a long tradition of patriotic service to the nation.
