Welcome to the Culpeper Minute Men Chapter web site of the Virginia Society, Sons of the American Revolution!
The Compatriots of the Culpeper Minute Men Chapter invite you to join our ranks as we strive to keep patriotism and the memory of our Revolutionary War heritage burning in the hearts and minds of every American, young and old.
The Culpeper Minute Men Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution is a lineage based organization serving the Virginia Piedmont of Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange, Greene, and Rappahannock Counties.
The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution was organized on April 30, 1889, the one hundredth anniversary of the inauguration of George Washington as our nation’s first president.
The SAR was conceived as a fraternal and civic society composed of lineal descendants of the patriots who wintered at Valley Forge, signed the Declaration of Independence, fought in the battles of the American Revolution, served in the Continental Congress, or otherwise supported the cause of American Independence. The National Society was chartered by an Act of the United States Congress on June 9, 1906. The charter was signed by President Theodore Roosevelt, who was also a member of the Empire State Society, SAR. The charter authorizes the granting of charters to societies of the various states and territories and authorizes the state-level societies to charter chapters within their borders.
If you believe you may descend from a Revolutionary War Patriot who supported the cause of American Independence and have an interest in joining us, We would welcome you to one of our meetings. Drop us a note for more information. WHO CAN JOIN?
