Welcome to the General 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 National Society Daughters of the American Revolution web site.

Our chapter was organized on October 21, 1931, in Sumner County, Tennessee. Jethro Sumner's name was selected as a way to honor his military service to America during her fight for independence. 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 General’s 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.
