Until June 2025, our state society will be focusing on various projects in our state and communities to make a positive impact upon our fellow Tennesseans. To achieve this goal, we have added several new projects for our chapters, and truly between the work of our committees and these new service projects, there is something for everyone.
These projects, along with our literacy efforts, historic sites support, and on-going work for our military and veterans, areexamples of our extensive efforts toward historic preservation, education, and patriotism, which are aims of our State and National Societies.
I encourage you to see what your local chapters are doing, and join us as we work to serve God, Home, and Country.
Emily Robinson, State Regent
What We Do
One of the three objectives of the DAR is historic preservation. From the very beginning of the Tennessee Society, historic preservation was emphasized.
The education of young people is one of the objectives of the DAR. The National Society offers a variety of educational programs, contests, and awards.
Since 1892, the TSDAR has been dedicated to the promotion of patriotism.
#OnThisDay in 1782, George Washington created the Badge of Military Merit, known today as the Purple Heart. The original badge design featured a "figure of a heart in purple cloth, or silk, edged with narrow lace or binding." Three men who served in the Revolutionary War received the Badge of Military Merit: Elijah Churchill, William Brown, and Daniel Bissell. Today on Purple Heart Day, we would like to honor and remember the men and women who were wounded or lost their lives in service of our country.#TodayInHistory #TodaysDAR #AmericanRevolution #RevolutionaryWar #VolunteerHeartsInAction #America250...
