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.”
What We Do
We decorate the graves of Revolutionary War soldiers and patriots. We support excellence in teaching of 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.
The San Diego Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution is a historical, educational, and patriotic non-profit, United States 501(c)3,
corporation that seeks to fulfill the objectives of the National Sons of the American Revolution, which is to maintain and extend:
- The institutions of American freedom
- An appreciation for true patriotism
- A respect for our national symbols
- The value of American citizenship
- 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 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.
