The Patriot ancestors of the current members of Centennial State Chapter, NSDAR, are listed below. American Revolutionary War Patriots include signers of the Declaration of Independence, members of local and state militias, members of the Continental Army or Continental Navy, men and women who rendered other types of aid to the cause of independence, and those who took oaths of loyalty. Foreign soldiers who served the cause of American independence and Spanish soldiers who served in the Presidios at Santa Fe, El Paso, and New Orleans are also recognized as Patriots. With a few exceptions, military service began with the Battle of Lexington (April 19, 1775) and ended when the British evacuated New York (November 26, 1783). Patriots may have also provided civil service by conducting public business in the newly formed American states.

If you have information that one of your ancestors may have aided the cause of freedom during the American Revolutionary War, we may be able to help you establish your genealogical line for DAR membership.
