C. A. R. and DAR: "Honoring Our Heritage, Focusing on the Future, Celebrating America"
C.A.R. trains good citizens, develops leaders and promotes love of the United States of America and its heritage among young people.
Founding of N.S.C.A.R.
Harriett M. Lothrop (1844 - 1924), NSDAR member and well-known author, founded the N.S.C.A.R. in 1895 to instill patriotic values in the youth of America. During the 1895 NSDAR Continental Congress, Mrs. Lothrop delivered a moving speech to its members urging them to join her in helping create a patriotic organization for their children. Mrs. Lothrop's vision was well received, and the Children of the American Revolution was founded on April 5, 1895.
Ever since, C.A.R. has provided patriotic education and leadership training to children under the age of twenty-two, whom, like DAR members, have proven descent from those who aided the cause of American independence during the Revolutionary War.
Today members of C.A.R. continue to help children through donations to Ronald McDonald House, DAR Schools, United Through Reading programs and Operation Gratitude.
Since 1975, The Nancy Green Chapter, NSDAR, has been sponsoring Creek Nation Society N.S.C.A.R.
