Nancy Ward Chapter NSDAR

Chattanooga, Tennessee


The Tennessee Society of the Children of the American Revolution

is comprised of twenty four societies throughout the state.

Founded in 1895, the National Society of the C.A.R. Is considered

To be the “oldest patriotic organization for youth in the country.”

The Nancy Ward Chapter supports the activities of the Col. Return Jonathan Meigs Society in Chattanooga, Tennessee by providing senior leadership to the society as well as participating in joint events and helping with service projects.

Meetings and activities are planned for all ages with special consideration given to younger members. Members gain invaluable leadership experience in conducting meetings, following parliamentary procedures and standard protocol, serving as delegates and speaking before groups at local, state and national conferences. The responsibility and privilege of selecting officers helps members gain an understanding of the democratic process.

Membership is open to descendents of patriots of the American Revolution. Any boy or girl under the age of twenty-one is eligible for membership in the National Society of the Children of the American Revolution who is lineally descended from a man or woman who, with unfailing loyalty, rendered material aid to the cause of American independence as a soldier, sailor, civil officer, or recognized patriot in one of the several colonies or states, or of the United States, provided that the applicant is personally acceptable to the society.

Contact the Senior Society President.
