The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded on October 11, 1890 with three main objectives:

To perpetuate the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence; by the acquisition and protection of historical spots and the erection of monuments; by the encouragement of historical research in relation to the American Revolution and the publication of its results; by the preservation of documents and relics, and of the records of the individual services of Revolutionary soldiers and patriots; and by the promotion of celebrations of all patriotic anniversaries.

To promote, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge and affording to young and old such advantages as shall develop in them the largest capacity for performing the duties of American Citizens

To cherish, maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, to foster true patriotism and love of country, and to aid in securing for mankind all the blessings of liberty...

Nationally, the Daughters of the American Revolution maintain the DAR Museum in Washington, D.C. which has a collection of 40,000 objects tracing life in early America. DAR also maintains a Library in Washington, D.C., open to the public, which houses over 105,000 titles relating to genealogy and history.
