The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR) was organized on April 30, 1889, the 100th anniversary of the inauguration of George Washington as the United States’ very first President. The fraternal and civic society was inspired by the Sons of Revolutionary Sires, a group of descendants of patriots involved in the American Revolution, as a way to commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.
The National Society was chartered by an Act signed by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906 that authorized the granting of charters to societies in various states and territories.

NSSAR is responsible for a number of youth outreach programs including the Americanism Elementary School Poster Contest, the Joseph S. Rumbaugh Historical Oration Contest, and the ROTC/JROTC Recognition Program.
