The Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R.) is a wonderful organization for creating a love of patriotism and developing future leaders. Members learn about history and the value of community service.
Our members are often the children, grandchildren, neices, and nephews of the members of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), Sons of the American Revolution (SAR), and Sons of the Revolution (SR). Membership is open to children from birth until the age of 22 and many young men and women go on to become active members in the DAR, SAR, and SR.
The C.A.R. is organized into local, state, and national societies. Please use the links above to explore more about the work of each of these groups.

The Children of the American Revolution, the nation's oldest, largest, patriotic youth organization, offers membership to anyone under the age of 21, lineally descended from someone who rendered material aid to the cause of American Independence as a soldier, sailor, civil officer, or recognized patriot in one of the several Colonies or States, or of the United States. C.A.R. activities focus on patriotism, service, and education about our American heritage.
Harriett Lothrop, a prominent citizen and 19th century children's author of Concord, MA, presented the idea for a children's organization to the Daughters of the American Revolution Continental Congress in 1895; it was then chartered by the United States Congress. Organized "for the training of young people in true patriotism and love of country," C.A.R. has promoted this vision to hundreds of thousands of members. These boys and girls are the leaders of yesterday, today and tomorrow, now in a second century of keeping patriotism alive.
