The California Society of the Sons of the American Revolution was instituted October 22nd, 1875. It was the first body in inception, institution and organization, to unite the descendants of Revolutionary patriots and perpetuate the memory of all those who took part in the American Revolution and maintained the Independence of the United States of America. It was fully and completely organized on the 4th of July, 1876, under the name of “Sons of Revolutionary Sires.” On the 30th of April, 1889, a number of similar co-equal Societies of different States formed a general Society under the name of “The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution,” in which movement this Society heartily co-operated and changed its name to The California Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, under which latter name it has been since known. We have used the acronym SAR to identify ourselves for over 100 years.
