What is SAR?

The SAR was conceived in 1876 as a fraternal and civic society composed of lineal descendants of the men who wintered at Valley Forge, signed the Declaration of Independence, fought in the battles of the American Revolution, served in the Continental Congress, or otherwise supported the cause of American Independence. An appreciation for true patriotism; a respect for our national symbols; the value of American citizenship; and the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people. 


We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.


SAR is a non-profit, United States 501(c)(3) corporation that seeks to maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom.
