THE ORGANIZATION OF THE SOCIETY. The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution was organized in the city of Washington, in the parlors of the Strathmore Arms, October 11, 1890, the Anniversary of the Discovery of America by Columbus. The Society was incorporated under the laws of Congress June 8, 1891. The Charter Membership, numbering 888, closed October 11, 1891. The objects of this Society are: (1) To perpetuate the memory and the spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence by the acquisition and protection of historical spots and the erection of monuments; by the encouragement of historical research in relation to the Revolution and the publication of its results; by the preservation of documents and relics, and of the records of the individual services of Revolutionary soldiers and patriots, and by the promotion of celebrations of all patriotic anniversaries. (2) To carry out the injunction of Washington in his farewell address to the American people," to promote, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge," thus developing an enlightened public opinion, and affording to young and old such advantages as shall develop in them the largest capacity for performing the duties of American citizens. (3) To cherish, maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, to foster true patriotism and love of country, and to aid in securing for mankind all the blessings of liberty.ELIGIBILITY. The sole requisite for eligibility to membership in this patriotic and national Society is proven lineal descent from an ancestor who, with unfailing loyalty, rendered material aid to the cause of Independence as a recognized patriot, as soldier or sailor, or as a civil officer in one of the several Colonies or States, or of the United Colonies or States ; or from the mother of such a patriot; provided that the applicant shall be at least eighteen years of age and acceptable to the Society. These books provide the name of each charter member of the organization and the line of descent from the Patriot to the Charter member.
