CT Society of the children of the American Revolution

The National Society of the Children of the American Revolution, founded in 1895, is the oldest patriotic organization for youths in our country. Membership is open to descendants of patriots of the American Revolution (i.e. someone who rendered material aid to the cause of American Independence as a soldier, sailor, civil officer, or recognized patriot in one of the several Colonies or States, or of the United States).

The American’s Creed ~ William Tyler Page
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose just powers
are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States;
a Perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for
which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect
its Flag; and to defend it against all enemies.


The C.A.R. Creed ~ Ethel Vance Moser
I believe in the Children of the American Revolution as an organization for the training of young people in true
patriotism and love of country, in order that they shall be better fitted for American citizenship.

As a descendant of the Founders of my Country, I believe that my birthright brings a certain responsibility to carry on
their work, and that as the boys and girls of 1776 took an active part in the War for Independence, so the boys and
girls of today have a definite work to do for their Country.

As a member of the Children of the American Revolution, I believe it is my to duty to use my influence to create a
deeper love of country, a loyal respect for our Constitution and a reverence for its Flag, among the young people
with whom I come in contact.
