The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution was organized on April 30, 1889, to "perpetuate the memory of those who, by their services or sacrifices during the war of the American Revolution, achieved the independence of the American People."

We decorate the graves of Revolutionary War soldiers and patriots.  We support excellence in teaching American history.  We participate in patriotic observances.  We support research and preservation of historic material relating to the men and women who fought or gave service for Independence in the American Revolutionary War.  We also participate in the Wreaths Across America program and place wreaths at three National Cemeteries to honor Veterans.
