The Delaware Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, a Delaware non-profit corporation originally organized on January 29, 1890, is a patriotic, historical and educational section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. The Delaware Society, as an integral part of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revoltion (NSSAR), helps perpetuate and preserve the memory, ideals, patriotism, courage and sacrifice of those men and women who helped secure American independence from Great Britain through the Revolutionary War (1775-1783). The Sons of the American Revolution believe that preservation and promulgation of these stories serves to inspire and strenghen each succeeding generation to continue to defend those freedoms originally given to us by the heroes of the American Revolution.
