Formation of the DAR
The men and women who achieved American Independence needed no reminders of what they had accomplished.  The victory itself was the monument to the spirit.  No other was required.  Documents, relics, and soldiers' tales were handed down in the traditional way, through families.

"The nation was to endure a devastating war between its very states, a painful reconstruction, and a proud centennial before it awoke to the ephemeral nature of the national memory.  And, then suddenly, it was time to remember and preserve."
Ann Arnold Hunter
A Century of Service: The Story of the DAR, 1991

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a national organization that was formed in 1890 and is dedicated to service to the nation.  Its objectives are historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavors.  An individual is first a member of the national society, and, through her chapter and state organization, she contributes her service to the collective strength and progress of the national society.  The formation of chapters of the DAR in Louisiana began in 1895, shortly after the national society was formed.
