Rich in History
The DAR is a volunteer women's service organization that honors and preserves the legacy of our Patriot ancestors. More than 200 years ago, American Patriots fought and sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today. As members of the DAR, we continue this legacy by actively promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.
Officially chartered in 1923, the Nevada Sagebrush Chapter is presently the oldest Daughters of the American Revolution chapter in Nevada. Our regular chapter meetings include a business meeting and an educational program.
Over the past 87 years, an emphasis has been
placed on the DAR motto: God, Home, and Country. Chapter activities include
the promotion of historical, patriotic, and educational endeavors through such
activities as naturalization
ceremonies, placing of historical markers, patriotic promotions, service to veterans, and
various genealogical activities. The Chapter promotes American history through patriotic education efforts including essay contests, presentations in schools and awarding medals for good citizenship and outstanding JROTC candidates. We are a proud sponsor of the Fort Churchill Society Children of the American Revolution.
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) was founded on October 11, 1890, with the purposes of historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavors. Any woman who is no less than 18 years of age and who can prove lineal, blood line descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence and who is voted into membership by the chapter. Documentation of said lineage must be provided according to NSDAR guidelines on the official membership application and with acceptable supporting materials.

The national society has a variety of standing committees which promote its three purposes. These include: educational programs, scholarship competitions, citizenship awards, school contests, sponsorship of schools for underprivileged children, literacy programs, genealogical records, national genealogical library, lineage research, DAR Museum, community service, national defense, units overseas, Constitution and U.S. flag, conservation, commemorative events, naturalization, and volunteerism. The NSDAR fact sheet can provide more specific information regarding the activities of each committee. It can be found on the NSDAR web site, located at www.dar.org.

Where ever your interest lies, the DAR has a program area where you can enjoy working with other women to support God, Home, and Country.
