What is DAR?
The Daughters of the American Revolution is a women’s organization, founded in Washington D.C. in 1890, whose members can trace direct lineage to one or more of the American Patriots who served the cause of liberty in the American Revolutionary War.  We strive to continue their tradition of service to our country and to contribute to their great legacy by promoting historic preservation, youth and community education, and national patriotism.
