Children of the American Revolution

History of the CAR

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.

Our History

About Us

Our Society of the C.A.R is sponsored by the Washington Crossing Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Originally organized in 1960 as Washington's Crossing Society headquartered in Levittown, PA, our chapter was reorganized in April 2004 as Washington Crossing Society headquartered in Washington Crossing, PA. Our membership has grown rapidly and is continuing to grow. All members, regardless of age, are included in our yearly programs. Those living out of town are kept informed and encouraged to participate. We have two members living in Colorado who actively participate in our projects.
