SAR Origins

The SAR, the largest male lineage organization in the U.S., consists of 50 societies with more than 500 local chapters, several international societies and over 34,000 members. SAR is dedicated to assisting our members, schools, teachers and the general public in their efforts to sustain and preserve our history and constitutional principles.

The SAR is an all male, historical, educational, and patriotic non-profit, United States 501(c)3, corporation that seeks to maintain and extend

    *  the institutions of American freedom
    *  an appreciation for true patriotism
    *  a respect for our national symbols
    *  the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations and one people.
    *  the value of American citizenship

We do this by perpetuating the stories of 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.

Shaping the Young

CFLSAR History

The Central Florida Chapter was established by the Florida Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (FLSSAR) in 1961. Our Chapter has served its members, family members and our community since its formation. According to Article II of the Constitution of the National Society Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR) our objects are declared to be Patriotic, Historical and Educational. It is the intention of the NSSAR to perpetuate the memory of those patriots who, by their services or sacrifices during the war of the American Revolution, achieved the independence of the American People.
