The National Society Children of the American Revolution was founded in April
1895 by Harriett Stone Lothrop. The purpose of the Society was to create an organization "for the training of young people
in true patriotism and love of Country". It provides a means for children to become knowledgeable of American history
and our government. The N.S.C.A.R. is the oldest patriotic organization for young people in the United States. Any child from
birth to age 21 who can prove descent from an American Patriot in the Revolution can join.

society of the National Society of the Children of the American Revolution located in Will County, Joliet Illinois; and
