Daughters of the American Revolution

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) was founded 125 years ago. Prohibited from joining the Sons of the American Revolution, four women—a lawyer, a teacher, an author and a postal worker—started their own society and endowed it with a relevant mission that continues to attract and inspire women today.

From its beginning, the DAR published a magazine chronicling its projects and members’ accomplishments. Today’s American Spirit magazine extends that legacy with engaging features related to the core mission. American Spirit celebrates education, patriotism, and the support of America’s military and veterans, as well as the preservation of historically important buildings, places, artifacts, documents and other items of interest to anyone who loves America’s story.

For over a decade, Hammock has produced this beautiful, award-winning publication—along with its sister newsletter Daughters—to help the DAR grow its membership and support historic preservation, patriotism and education.
