Port Tobacco Chapter
Daughters of the American Revolution!
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women's service organization comprising 3,000 chapters and over 185,000 members.
The Port Tobacco Chapter NSDAR was chartered on December 8, 1965. We are a very active chapter, sponsoring student awards, contests, and scholarships; supporting military families and veterans; and contributing to historical preservation.
We welcome new members! DAR members come from a variety of backgrounds and interests, but all share a common bond of having an ancestor who helped contribute to securing the independence of the United States of America. Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible to join.
