The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America’s future through better education for children. The national organization was founded in 1890. On May 27, 1931, 12 patriotic women met for the purpose of organizing a Warren County chapter of DAR to be named for Lt. James Sheppard Jr., Revolutionary Patriot and ancestor of five of these women.
