Thank you for your interest in the Fort Harrison Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution and welcome to our website. Our members engage in a range of activities throughout the year that promote the values and goals of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) and we invite you to join us in honoring our Revolutionary War heritage and all the brave patriots who fought, bled and died so that we, their descendents, might enjoy the peace and freedom their valor won.

By remembering and honoring the patriots who won our freedom and created a new nation, we strive to keep America great and the American Dream alive. Specifically, SAR members seek to promote and extend:

  • the institutions of American freedom
  • an appreciation for true patriotism
  • a respect for our national symbols
  • the value of American citizenship
  • From September through May of each year, our Chapter has monthly meetings. These meetings feature an interesting speaker in a field related to the American Revolution, U.S. history and government, or other pertinent topics of the time. We currently are meeting at Wood Grill Buffet in Harrisonburg on the 3rd Tuesday of the month beginning with dinner from the buffet at 5:15-5:30 pm followed by our meeting beginning at 6:00 pm. Please note that our December meeting may well be held at another location so check ahead if you would like to join us in December.

    We always have a warm welcome for new members. If you are already a member of the SAR and would like to join the Ft. Harrison Chapter, please contact our Registrar. If you are not a member of the SAR and would like more information about joining the SAR and the Ft. Harrison Chapter, please click on our Membership information page or contact our Registrar. The ONLY requirement for membership is to be an adult male with proof of being a lineal descendent from a patriot who served the American cause during the approved period of the Revolutionary War.
