The Idaho Society of the
Sons of the American Revolution

     Organized on April 30,1889, the National Society, SAR was chartered by an act of Congress June 9, 1906. The charter was signed by President Theodore Roosevelt, who was a member of the SAR. (http://www.sar.org/About/Origins)

     Today the SAR consists of 50 State Societies, with more than 500 local or regional SAR Chapters. From inception, the SAR has been dedicated to patriotic, historical and educational objectives. These are reflected in every SAR activity - all designed and conducted to help perpetuate understanding of, reverence for and preservation of those institutions of American Freedom delineated in the Preamble of our Constitution and in the injunctions of George Washington in his farewell address to the citizens of the Republic he led in war and in peace.

     The charter for the Idaho Society is dated February, 1909. We currently have two active Chapters within the Idaho Society. The charter of the Fort Boise Chapter, SAR is dated 24 February, 1958. The charter for the Teton Chapter, SAR is dated 1 January, 2014.
