What is the SAR?

The Sons of the American Revolution, or SAR, is a historical, educational, and patriotic non-profit organization that seeks 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.

This is achieved by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who brought about the independence of the American people. It is our belief that these are universal stories of man’s eternal struggle against tyranny and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it is called to defend our freedoms.
