Excerpt from The Century Book of Famous Americans: The Story of a Young People's Pilgrimage to Historic HomesThe organization of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution was the outgrowth of that notable epoch in American history when from the Pacific coast the tidal wave of patriotic enthusiasm started, and by its might and power kindled in the hearts of men and women interest in the Colonial and Revolutionary periods which had so long lain dormant.The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution was organized in Washington, D. C., October 11, 1890. Its objects are: "(1) To perpetuate the memory and the spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence, by the acquisition and protection of historic spots and the erection of monuments; by the encouragement of historical research in relation to the Revolution, and the publication of its results; by the preservation of documents and relics, and of the records of the individual services of Revolutionary soldiers and patriots, and by the promotion of celebrations of all patriotic anniversaries. (2) To carry out the injunction of Washington in his farewell address to the American people: 'To promote, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge,' thus developing an enlightened public opinion, and affording to young and old such advantages as shall develop in them the largest capacity for performing the duties of American citizens. (3) To cherish, maintain, and extend the institutions of American freedom, to foster true patriotism and love of country, and to aid in securing for mankind all the blessings of liberty."About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
