Purposes of the National Society of the U. S. Daughters of 1812

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.

Michigan State Society President

Judy Williams Hull
2015 - 2018

Welcome to our website. Take a look around and see what our Michigan State Society has been doing. You will find contact information for each of the three chapters in our state as well as files to open to view some of our past activities.

The Bicentennial of the War of 1812 has come to and end. I hope you have taken the time to reflect on how important the War of 1812 was to our country and how important it is to continue to honor those patriots from that war.

As President of the Michigan State Society, my goals are to publish the book of the War of 1812 Veterans who are buried in Michigan that our members have been working on for a long time, to preserve our Michigan State Society history by digitizing it and to increase membership.
