The Sons of the American Revolution welcome you.
Welcome to the home page of the St Petersburg Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution (SAR). Thank you for visiting and we invite you to take a few minutes to explore our site and to learn more about our organization.
The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR) is a lineage society composed of direct descendents of colonial Patriots who provided unfailing material support for the cause of American Independence from the British. Descent may be through either the male or female line; however, it must be direct (not collateral).
Founded in 1889, the SAR is a not-for-profit organization, advancing the cause of patriotism, education and the institutions of American freedom. The SAR was formally granted a congressional charter by an act of Congress under Title 36, United States Code on June 9, 1906. The act was signed by President Theodore Roosevelt, who was also a member.
The St. Petersburg Chapter of the S.A.R. meets at Billy's Stonecrab, Seafood & Steak (1 Collany Road, Tierra Verde, Florida) on the third Saturday of each month at 11:30 AM, September through May.
Please accept my invitation to explore our website. If you believe you may be qualified for membership in the SAR, please click here to send us an inquiry. We will respond to you within 24 hours.
If you have children or relatives under the age of 22, they may be eligible to join the National Society Children of the American Revolution (CAR). We welcome your inquiries about the CAR as well.
In Patriotic Spirit,
Charles R. Butler
National Society Sons of the American Revolution St. Petersburg Chapter
Our organization is composed of a national society and local societies; they are referred to as NSSAR and SAR. Our society is not a political party or movement, nor are we allied with one; we do, however, adhere to the following pledge which dates to our founding in the 19th century.
We, the descendants of the heroes of the American Revolution who, by their sacrifices, established the United States of America, reaffirm our faith in the principles of liberty and our Constitutional Republic, and solemnly pledge ourselves to defend them against every foe.
