The National Society United States Daughters of 1812 was organized on January 8, 1892 on the anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans. The society requires lineal descent from an ancestor who rendered military, naval, or civil service between the close of the American Revolutionary War in 1783 and the close of the War of 1812 in 1815. Military service may be in any one of sixteen recognized engagements between those dates.



Purpose

The purposes of this society shall be to promote patriotism, to preserve and increase knowledge of the history of the American people by the preservation of documents and relics, the marking of historic spots, the recording of family histories and traditions, the celebration of patriotic anniversaries, teaching and emphasizing the heroic deeds of the civil, military and naval life of those who molded this government between the close of the American Revolution and the close of the War of 1812, to urge Congress to compile and publish authentic records of men in civil, military and naval service from 1784 to 1815 inclusive, to maintain at National Headquarters a museum and library of memorabilia of the 1784-1815 period and to assist in the care and maintenance of our "Real Granddaughters" in every way that will add to their comfort and happiness.
