Colorado Daughters of the American Revolution
The Colorado State Society NSDAR is a vibrant, growing organization of women who are interested in America’s rich history, promoting education, researching their family heritage, encouraging patriotism, and serving their communities. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 and incorporated by an Act of Congress in 1896. One of the largest women’s service organizations in the world, the DAR is comprised of volunteers who lineally descend from someone who served or assisted our new country in the American Revolution. Mary Green Montgomery Slocum founded the Colorado State Society of the DAR on May 13, 1895. With 47 chapters statewide and over 3,680 members in Colorado, DAR members are dedicated to promoting education, historic preservation, and patriotism.
