Welcome to the Colonel Jethro
Sumner Chapter, NSDAR
We are honored that you are interested in
learning about our chapter. Membership in the Daughters of the
American Revolution (DAR) honors and preserves the legacy of our
patriot ancestors. We are a non-profit, non-political, volunteer
service organization. Any woman is eligible who is no less
than eighteen years of age and can prove lineal blood descent from
an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence. For
further information, please visit the
Society Daughters of the American Revolution web site.
Our chapter was organized on October 21, 1931,
in Sumner County, Tennessee. Colonel Jethro Sumnerís name was
selected as a way to honor his military service to America during
her fight for independence. Colonel Sumner fought variously at Lower
Cape Fear, Charlestowne, Brandywine, and Germantown. He wintered at
Valley Forge, fought again at Stone Ferry, Eutaw Springs, and in
defense of southern North Carolina. Finally, he commanded the North
Carolina militia during the remainder of the war.
Please accept an invitation to visit our
chapter. Our chapter provides many opportunities to cherish our
heritage of freedom, by preserving family and local histories, by
living patriotically, and by supporting our national defense. Our
Project Patriot program supports the active military now
deployed in foreign countries. We support the Fisher House of Fort
Campbell in Clarksville, Tennessee, as well as the Sumner County
Veterans Home. We promote American history throughout the year
by honoring historically significant people, places, and events.
We recognize students with awards and scholarships, and we work with
historical groups within our community. This chapter supports
our President Generalís project by contributing toward the
restoration and maintenance of the beautiful member-owned buildings
in Washington, D.C.
We invite you to form friendships with others
who share the love of God, Home, and Country. Thank you for
exploring our web site and learning more about why we are proud to
be a part of the DAR.
