Our Society and Chapter
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is an educational non-profit organization, formed in 1891 in Washington, D.C. Its goals are the perpetuation of the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence by the preservation of historical relics and locations, and of records of their individual service; the encouragement of research and publication of historical documents; the promotion of patriotism and love of country; the support of educational facilities.
Flag House Chapter was founded by the descendants of Betsy Ross and was granted a charter on June 9, 1903. In 1903, the Chapter presented a 13-star flag to hang from the window of the Betsy Ross House in Philadelphia. In 1904, the Chapter presented a 13-star flag to Christ Church in Philadelphia. At the dedication of Memorial Continental Hall in Washington, D.C., Flag House Chapter was granted the privilege of unfurling the first flag about the building. At this same Congress, the Chapter presented a 13-star flag which was let down from the ceiling of the Assembly Room. Under the flag were the signatures of the 13 original members of Flag House Chapter.
This last year our Regent, several officers, past Regents, and other members attended various functions, including the SAR-DAR Constitution Week luncheon, the Washington's Birthday Celebration in Philadelphia, and Continental Congress. We also supported the Section I and II Luncheon, and continued our tradition of providing American Flag picks for the patients' luncheon trays at the Philadelphia Protestant Home on Flag Day. We awarded local students for Junior ROTC, Good Citizenship and Good Citizens, and made contributions to Hillside, Hindman, Crossnore, and Tamassee schools.
Currently we have 27 members.
