Our Patriots

Who are our Patriots?

The ladies of the Mount Vernon Chapter NSDAR have American Revolutionary War ancestors from thirteen different states. Our ancestors aided the war through military, civil, or patriotic service. These patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes for the freedoms we enjoy today. We remember them proudly!


Below is a list of patriots who are descendants of our chapter members. At the bottom of the page you will find a key for the service acronyms.
