The National Society Children of the American Revolution was founded in 1895. It is the oldest patriotic organization for youths in our country. Any young person under the age of 21 is eligible for membership and can remain a member until their 22nd birthday. Prospective members must be lineally descended from a man or woman who, with unfailing loyalty, rendered material aid to the cause of American independence as a soldier, sailor, civil officer, or recognized patriot in one of the several colonies or states, or of the United States.
