Delaware State Sons of the American Revolution Welcome Message
Welcome to the Delaware State Sons of the American Revolution website! Our Society welcomes our members and the public to view our website and its content. The site has our Constitution and By-Laws, our activities, a list of our membership and their Patriots from our inception to today, our meeting notices and minutes and many other interesting facts.
The website covers our State and local Chapters officers, contact information, membership information, and a comprehensive list of our scheduled meetings and planned events around the State of Delaware.
Those individuals interested in genealogy can see our list nearing 2,000 members from Delaware that have been approved since the start of our organization in 1890. There is a list of the Patriots associated with the member's name and State and the service they had performed to become a Revolutionary War Patriot. There is also a list of biographical descriptions of the Patriot’s service, where they lived, and some information on their families and how they came to America. Their bios are located on our National website along with over 6,000 other bios that our National membership has written. This is all open to the public as well as our membership.
Additionally, our Delaware Society focuses on those younger individuals currently actively involved in both individual and community advancement. We recognize new Eagle Scouts for their personal achievements and each Eagle Scout may participate in a national competition that is recognized at our annual Congress. The Eagle Scout, judged to be the most ourstanding, is awarded a generous scholarship. The Delaware Society also recognizes outstanding JROTC students during the school year. These “citizen-soldiers” are selected for having a high degree of merit with respect to leadership qualities, military bearing, and general excellence. The winner of the national competition receives a special award at our annual Congress that includes a cash prize and ribbon. There is also a contest focusing on Americanism for Elementary School Posters, as well as the Sgt. Moses Adams Memorial Middle School Brochure contest. Another great program is the Joseph S. Rumbaugh Oration Contest that is open to all high school students. The Delaware Society also recognizes outstanding achievements of Firefighters, EMS and Law Enforcement professionals.
