We are the Aquidneck Island Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR). The DAR is a non-profit, non-political women's service organization dedicated to promoting historic preservation, education, and patriotism. We are direct descendants of the Patriots who aided in achieving American independence. Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove this lineage is eligible to join.
