Notes The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), founded in 1890, is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children. Members must prove their bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence. The Kentucky Society of the DAR was organized in 1891.
