On April 30, 1889, twenty delegates, representing 13 states gathered at the historic Fraunces Tavern in New York City for a two-day convention. The result of the gathering was the organization of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. Within the first year, the SAR had 2500 members. Currently there are over 35,000 active members. On April 30, 2019 the SAR is celebrating 130 years of existence. While much has changed in the organization over the 130 years, the SAR’s commitment to history, education, and patriotism have remained constant. Here’s to the next 130 years!
Happy Birthday SAR!
