History

The Daughters of the American Colonists were organized on April 25, 1921. The objects of the group were “to base eligibility to membership upon lineage descent from those men and women who once were actual residents of America when it was under foreign government as colonies; to make research and publish the same; to erect memorials to commemorate colonial deeds and places of interest; to inculcate and foster the love of America and its institutions, by all its residents; to obey its laws and to venerate its flag, the emblem of its power and civic righteousness; and for mutual improvement and educational purposes.”
