In 1876, a group of men in the San Francisco Bay Area who were descendants of patriots involved in the American Revolution, formed an organization called the Sons of Revolutionary Sires.

On April 30, 1889, the one hundredth anniversary of the inauguration of George Washington as our nation’s first president the original organization became the Sons of the American Revolution.

The National Society Sons of the American Revolution [NSSAR] was chartered by an Act of the United States Congress on June 9, 1906, and was signed by President Theodore Roosevelt. The charter authorizes the granting of charters to societies of the various states and territories and authorizes the state-level societies to charter chapters within their borders.
